A Luta Continua

life2Dear life, I’m not tired of you yet, of your swindling. I’m not tired of the surprises. Aren’t this what dreams are made of, uncertainties, brokenness and sometimes, triumph?

FALLEN LEAVES

imageThere are different sources to every fortune. When one door closes, there’s another path waiting to push you further and farther in life. Nothing ever empties completely on the face of this earth.
