la atención de Brasil Brue

Ivete Sangalo
Ah, my Brazilian friend
here comes Ivete

The energy and color of your county's performing artists
the vocal and personal beauty,
the syncopation, the grand participation of the crowds,
the rhythms and multi-parts at once,
the pounding blood......


Not just for Amish


the congregationalistical way

To look the other way when encountering

One you do not wish to see

To man the buffets with selective eyes

On those who pass before you

When in the corridors or stairs, not

Noticing certain people

To prefer to interact with those

Mostly of your own economic

Or philosophic strata

"No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey. No matter what, you are welcome here."

We all say it, but it's hard to do it.
