Our December sun is setting...

Last Thursday was the day I officially left the Live Journal world and my vacations began. I travelled to Curitiba (where [livejournal.com profile] paradoxo_mental abides) and had a great time -- the details of what happened there I do not have the time to tell right now.

I got sick on Friday, and it seemed one of those infections that make you feel like crap for two days and then goes away. ...except this one didn't. It's Wednesday, I'm back in Rio, and I'm still feeling like crap. Going to a doctor in an hour, so wish me luck. I hope I'm not sicker than I thought at first.

Anyway, that's my excuse for not being around. I won't have time to read my friends list, all I've missed on the last days. For that, I apologise. On Saturday I travel again, this time to São Paulo (and from there, to lots of places. I'll make a post about it.).

Please e-mail me (nancy_downs@livejournal.com) if something happens, if you want to talk, or just for the heck of it. I'll do my best to keep you posted of all that is going on.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
