Rocking the jigsaw on this long awaited project. Felt like it would be too awkward and tight with my bandsaw. Couple holes drilled helped get a good rough shape. Some finessing and sanding to get the perfect shape. This will be a present to myself, just in time for Father’s Day and my Birthday 😁. An extra long charcuterie board made from a beautiful piece of Black Walnut. Complete with heartwood and sapwood contrast of course! I’ve been holding on to this gem of a board from @crosscuthardwoodsseattle for a while. Excited to finally unlock its beauty and get this squeezed in right before Carpal Tunnel surgery next week! Oh and can you tell I really liked the grill scraper handle design?...😄
Happy Sunday! Happy #Festa Day! WooHoo! Enjoying this American #Portuguese tradition my Mai introduced us to when we were little babies!!! Every year we gather, eat, now we drink (😉) Portuguese wine, and enjoy the day!!! ⛅️🍷 Kyle experiencing his new found roots after that #23andme test!!! 😂 #Madeira 🇵🇹
Genteeeee é novidade quentinha saindo no Ateliê Arte e Sonho. Esse sofazinho super lindinho, confortável e charmoso! A criançada vai amar ter um sofazinho desses em casa, além de ser uma peça de decoração indispensável. Feita com madeira reciclada.

Ontem a casa estava cheia lá no @sescvilamariana, uma beleza só! E ainda por cima era a #semanamundialdobrincar ! Brincamos um monte com o ping-ping, a melhor invenção para se jogar ping-pong sozinho! E brincamos também construindo o brinquedo, apesar de levar muito a sério o fato de usarmos ferramentas de verdade, super afiadas, para trabalhar a madeira. Essa coisa de levar a sério é interessante... Em Asas do desejo, filme lindo do Wim Wenders, há um momento em que um anjo diz para outro: é preciso seriedade para ser selvagem! Donald Woods Winnicott, meu autor preferido em psicanálise (e nem é por causa do nome do meio) também encarava com muita seriedade o brincar. Nesses contextos ambas palavras não se contrapõem mas marcam o seguinte: o brincar tem a ver com um modo de se relacionar com a realidade e esse modo é de enorme relevância para nossa existência criativa no mundo. Obrigado a todos que brincaram ontem e que seguem brincando por aí!

21/52 Through the Glass
I am starting to notice how easily I am beginning to struggle with this project, now that the wedding season has already begun for a few weeks.
Busy week, with traveling for work and never ending exploring, sessions, meetings and two weddings, has left less time to do self-portraiture. So proud I could still manage something.
I have a thing for floating or magical doors and windows in photographs. Always wanted to try something like this. Unfortunately this is poorly edited as I was short on time, so I’ll be back to this concept someday.
Lately it’s like I am not looking behind a glass as an outsider of my own life, looking in. The past few years I felt like I was watching a movie of my life and had no power over my own actions and decisions, though it was me acting and deciding upon them. I was numb and disconnected from even myself. And lately I feel like I am slowly waking up. Feeling more present. Decisive. Fierce. Happier as always but more sensitive too, again and finally.
So I am not on the other side looking in. Not anymore. I am finally on the side of the sun letting everything flow and glow my way, at ease. Letting the suns of my inner person set whenever and wherever they want. Letting the galaxies in my heart explode and fall sleep as they feel like doing. And it feels so right. 🌟
This was shot at noon. Harsh sun and harsh shadows and I am quite fond of them. Forever grateful to @martacabralphoto for being my human tripod on this trip. Human tripod amongst so many other things. I am so grateful for her.
This is a 52 week project created by a group of 6 girls. Me and 5 other beautiful and inspiring women. To follow our project all you have to do is follow the hashtag #52sisterhood . It would be absolutely beautiful if you were rooting for us on this epic journey.
