Our blood is always flowing and clotting, and in this way repairing little or bigger bleedings in our body. Nosso sangue está sempre  coagulando, fluindo de novo e, assim, vai consertando  sangramentos pequeneninhos ou maiores que acontecem no corpo.

A constant balance is required.Um constante equilíbrio é necessário.

Like in our life, we are always “flowing” or trying to…like on a dancefloor, or when ideas come and flow over a screen or a piece of paper… Como acontece no nosso dia a dia, nós também fluimos ou tentamos fazê-lo…como numa pista de dança ou quando as idéias pipocam e fluem sobre uma tela ou num pedaço de papel…

and we are “clotting” too when we give form to a project, when we finally decide to “do” something….e, também “coagulamos” quando damos forma e finalizamos um projeto, quando decidimos finalmente de “fazer” algo….

It´s a metaphor that i like to use in my life…. é uma metáfora que eu gosto de usar na minha vida..

When to flow and when to clot….that is A question ! 🙂 Quando fluir e quando coagular..eis a questão?

ps: this drawing is made by Cloves a teenager I met at the hospital and was part of a group therapy for 7 years with my coordination. Este desenho foi feito por Cloves aos 14 anos quando participava de um grupo que organizei durante 7 anos. Depois de trabalharmos a coagulação, a sua simbologia …

He was 14 when he did it.

After studying Blood characteristics and clotting he draw what represented to him the opposites in blood.pg-84

    Interessante…o fluir tem a ver com tudo que é líquido e o coagular é sólido, duro.
    Perder sangue ou doa-lo pode ser um fluir ruim ou bom, depende da situação.
