My Poetry Corner August 2015 features the poem “Filosofia” (Philosophy) by Brazilian poet José Guilherme de Araújo Jorge (1914-1987), a favorite poet among the people, especially the youth, for his romantic lyricism and socialist message. His romantic poetry speaks to lovers who had loved and lost.

The following stanzas from two of his romantic poems, titles unknown, were sourced from the Brazilian literary website, Pensador(Philosopher).

Seems like madness
How to explain the truth
that love, that lasts for such a short time
hurts me for an eternity.

You think you love several times…
Delusion, pure delusion,
the strange miracle of the human heart
I found difficult to understand,
and perhaps still don’t comprehend:
– Every time we love
It’s like the first time…

How Scientists Feel About Climate Change

“I feel exasperated that it is taking so many decades before society gets serious about the challenge posed by climate change – speeches and declarations, yes, but nothing has been done that measures up to the challenge… Every year there are more warning lights that start blinking red…”

My friend Marcella Capasso, a freelance food stylist, is a soft-spoken, unassuming person and mother of a six-year-old daughter. Those photos of mouthwatering food in cookbooks, magazines, menus, and product labels have all been styled. For photo shoots, she buys and prepares the food or beverages, and then arranges it for the camera. Over the years I’ve known her, she has shared artisan bread, exotic fruits, green vegetables, and fresh flowers used in her various photo shoots. I’ve also enjoyed some of the dishes she has prepared as recipe tester for magazines.

Born in Idaho, where she attended Boise State University, Marcella moved to New York in search of her dream career. Beginning in 1998, her job as bookkeeper for Ross Whitaker, a top New York photographer, exposed her to the discipline needed for success…

For millions of us, Facebook has become the virtual space to connect and share with our family and friends, as well as to make new friends. But it has its downside, exposing us to haters and bullies, violence, pornography, and much more.

Three years ago in São Paulo, Atilla Barros, a Brazilian web designer, together with three other devout colleagues decided to change all that. On June 4, 2015, they launched Faceglória, an online social network “to facilitate communication between people who seek to preserve family principles, morality and respect between users who share the same faith, ideas, among other activities.”

Caution! Writer at Work

On Friday evenings when I draft my Sunday’s blog post, I usually don’t have trouble switching from writing fiction to non-fiction. This weekend was different. I had originally planned to write an article on Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s official visit to the United States on June 29-30, 2015, but my head was in another place and time.

Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States

“Damages from storms, flooding, and heat waves are already costing local economies billions of dollars—we saw firsthand in New York City with Hurricane Sandy. With the oceans rising and the climate changing, the Risky Business report details the costs of inaction in ways that are easy to understand in dollars and cents—and impossible to ignore.”

My Poetry Corner July 2015, features the poem “Lionfish” by Bermudian poet, Nancy Anne Miller. Although lying outside the Caribbean Region, Bermuda – a British island territory in the North Atlantic Ocean – became an associate member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), in 2003 to strengthen its shared cultural ties.

After hearing about the lionfish some years ago, I never gave it much thought until I recently read Nancy Anne Miller’s poem published in the latest issue of The Arts Journal. With her precise and vivid imagery, the poet grabbed my attention.

Without dillydallying, the poet takes us face-to-face with the lionfish: an aggressive, exotic creature.
