Achieving/reaching a state of TRANQUILITY has sharpened my perceptions. Bottom line: People who are not passionately motivated about what they are doing will not be capable of putting forth the effort to achieve greatness. They have already lost the race before the starting gun has been shot.
They are the living dead.Brazil is FULL OF LIFE, happy colorful samba music.
Comparatively speaking. Los Angeles, albeit the Fashion capitol of the world and the entertainment capitol of the world, is DEAD, a ghost town filled with wannabes, full of directionless people who don’t have a clue and insecurity.
Come get a DOSE OF VITALITY, COME TO BRAZIL TO BE SURROUNDED BY A ROBUST LIFE FORCE. REFRESH YOUR MIND. COME TO BRAZIL.
REENERGIZE. Brazil is going to be the next leading country in the world. Compare San Francisco which smells of urine with São Paulo where beautiful publicly displayed art literally abounds. Where the artist are is where the future will be.
PHOTO AT TOP is of my poolside lunch today (grilled fish, coconut rice and lightly cooked colorful mixed vegetables) at the Txai Resort Hotel at Itacare Beach.
PERSONAL NOTE: I am taking advantage of the opportunity I gave myself to do “nothing” but enjoy nature, wander while going slow and to take hours eating meals slowly — for 28 days. For dessert I had two artisan sorbets created with local fruits and the sugar of those fruits. My lunch took two hours to consume.
ASIDE: Of course, there was no reason to rush. While slowing eating each morsel of my lunch I enjoyed looking at the panorama of gorgeous women in colorful bikinis surrounding me at the swimming pool. Although it is winter here in Brazil, the weather is perfect bikini wearing weather. Each woman I saw at the swimming pool was wearing a different bright happy colored colorful bikini.
COMMENT: Life is a fashion show. There is no reason to be in a hurry or to be dull, bored, or boring. ADVICE: It is superlatively peaceful here.
