AND WHAT I see?

I am a mother of 2 adolescent girls; one is slowly getting out the phase (18 and a half) and the other one starting to be in it (12 and a half)…

and I look at them and re view my own adolescence….we are all mirrors to each other. WHAT i DO, say, enjoy, cry, think  is a big lake where

its waters show them images of a woman, a mother…but they know that the waters own a depth, a mistery, a story that is not yet revealed.

THIS IS THE WAY I LOOK AT  Ru and Da: A MISTERY, an unfinished story, an endless one…..

How is maternity to you? how is paternity to you daddies? enjoy and endure the journey, because both are part of it.

When i am with young men,adolescents who have HEMOPHILIA, the blood clotting disorder is a DETAIL…not more important than communicating with him about his doubts, his passions, his visions for the present/future…

NARCISUS plunged into the waters because he couldn’t recognize that he was the reflexion…he thought that the image on the waters was ANOTHER PERSON! adolescence is about starting to have consciousness of  things and aspects that aren’t easy to recognized as ours…Picture 10

    Ica que foto maravilhosa cheia de movimento sobre um reflexo aparentemente imóvel onde requer coragem para não se tornar como Narciso, talvez um cego de si mesmo… Bela reflexão do mistério de podermos, ou não, ter propriedade do que vemos! As vezes ser como Narciso é mais comodo porem sem crescimento…enxergar, sentir a se próprio requer muitas olhadas no lago!
    Um grande abraço
    Alessandra
