Writing is infectious, demanding, sometimes suffocating, but I couldn’t live without writing. H. S. Campoy

Seasons of a Soul

Kindle and Paperback

Seasons of a Soul is a poetic journey through the Earth’s seasons – spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Acollection of the contradictory feelings each season brings. The spring blossom opens when the sprites dance in our gardens, jumping from flower to flower, collecting colour, nectar, and provisions. Bright summer is when souls sparkle as the sun’s rays, illuminating every corner we may have aimed to keep in darkness, unveiling all the hopes we pretend not to have. Mellow autumn is a second spring, where the changing colours of the leaves reflect the once-bright flowers as the branches yearn to sleep. Autumn is relaxation and introspection but with a touch of colour and imagination. Finally, yet essential restitution, before the cycle can begin again, winter melds the melancholy months with snow, a blanket of solitude, beneath which one chooses to reflect on success, failure, delusion and illusion.


Asif, Perdão

Kindle and Paperback

Asif, Superação

Kindle and Paperback

Asif is the story of Beatriz.

Beatriz is a woman on her 47 who suddenly breaks the rule of Brazilian society where a woman is born to serve and be in the shadow of a man. Her mother was restrictive, with a genuine belief in man superiority. The mother’s view shaped most of Beatriz’s childhood, observing her mother be the last to sit at the table after serving the family or be silent when trying to give an opinion about the family’s future.

Growing up in a patriarchal environment transformed Beatriz into a woman without a will, always desperately trying to please her family, husband and son. She became a ghost of a ghost, someone without objective perspective, immersed in a cage without bars and a life without meaning.

The Internet, still very new in Brazil in 2009, opened a new world to Beatriz and made her life change. The story began three years after her husband died when work and her son were the only threads keeping Beatriz going. 

Asif came to her life as a joke, a fantasy but the young Indian man, full of sexual stories, lies, and naivety about the real world outside his community, gave the push Beatriz needed to finally change from who she was to who she really should be.

From Sao Paulo to New Delhi, through India and Europe. Asif (Perdão and Superação) are a journey where Beatriz will finally find peace, herself, and love.


The aRt of the bRush

Chaos

How many times you thought about the disorder and irregularities in life?

cHaoS theory is a multidisciplinary scientific theory and branch of mathematics focus in underlying patterns and deterministic laws highly sensitive to initial conditions in dynamical systems that were thought yo have completely random states of disorder and irregularities. The paint reflects this theory, trying to associate it to life.

Chaos

Chaos seems a cruel word, however chaos give birth to stars.

Summer

Summer is the hottest of the four seasons. It came after Spring and before Autumn. It’s a colourful dispute between beauty and burning days. Some people belongs to the sun other to the downpour coming after.

Waves

In physics, mathematics, and related fields, a wave is a propagating dynamic disturbance – change from equilibrium – of one or more quantities. Life is full of waves, coming and going, bringing hope or taking it.

Moving

Under our feet, earth moves. We move ourselves as life goes by. Expressing that in colours and random forms inspire the heart of a person.

“The only portfolio that matters is the one that I leave in people’s hearts.”

Working as a software engineer did not fulfil me entirely. The first step was free me from the burden of working for a company. Creating one to share what I learned with small and medium clients was a wonderful experience. However, something was missing. I have always loved working with education, and nothing better than putting together the two passions: technology and education.

The company later split into two: one developing software and the other working to implement the integration between technology and education. It was a challenging and gratifying journey. For ten years, I had the pleasure to work with children, teenagers, and adults to inspire them to give the next step to transform education.

In 1998 Heleny developed an approach to uniting different areas of human knowledge in one project called technology. The image shows two moments in 1999: a child amazed by science software and primary schoolers using the ability to create “machines”.

Mathematics

Computer interaction at an early age. Using computers to develop skills of analysing, understanding, questioning and extrapolating. Teamwork and creativity are emphasised too.

Geography

Geography can be worked like a complete project where mathematics, language, and other skills are worked. The children developed a CD about countries, and the photo shows a moment when they are tasting new foods from those countries.

Emotion

Working emotion on a technology class. It helps children develop better links, improve communication and transfer what they learn about themselves and others to work.

Heleny

The best moments happen when I am on the move – in Asia or America. Dry and sunny deserts, or snowy mountain-tops. In the middle of a Thai market full of people thriving to live. In a jungle, where every species competes to stay alive.

Once upon a time… Wait…life is not a fairy-tale. Life is tough, sometimes too tough! Life is fun, too, a combination of bitter and sweet. Life is life; no definition needed, simply take it, and do with it whatever it is possible to do.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde

My initial step in gaining a concept of ‘living’, was to read. Books became my first love, the toy I most cherished; my ultimate desire. From this viewpoint, I have already been living life to the full. I can remember the very first book I held in my hands. It smelt of fresh ideas escaping into a dead world…bringing it to life. The pages were the path I took to transform that four year old girl into a dreamer.I grew up dreaming: with my books, with my music. The myriad of places I visited, exchanging my simple clothes, living life aplenty through the lives of each of those characters I adored. I was a fairy, a queen, a brave musketeer, a defiant knight, a wise philosopher. Those were my steps to becoming the ‘me’ I am today.

Idealistic, but not with my feet off the ground. Full of innovative ideas, yet always ideas imbued with a sense of real fantasy. Believing that everything is possible, I built my byways to now, to this very moment! Today, when I turn my eyes to the tree with its autumnal vestment, the birds are flying to another place far away; I will fly there too… Indeed, travel has been the other cherry atop my fairy-cake of life. The absolute pinnacle. The best moments happen when I am on the move – in Asia or America. Dry and sunny deserts, or snowy mountain-tops. In the middle of a Thai market full of people thriving to live. In a jungle, where every species competes to stay alive. It doesn’t matter where, life flows in my veins, a life worth being lived. This amalgam of books, travel and ideas, has created a person who is hard to define. Strange, reclusive, naïve – the ‘labelling’ has been persistent, but I have learned to accept it and move on.

This space is about ideas (mostly mine), mixed with travels, sensations and feelings. It’s not to anybody. It’s for the chosen. But, it is not for me to choose… it’s for you. Welcome then. Give me your mind, and take my hand, it will be something of a roller coaster through uncharted territory.
