It’s tacky, but i love it. Found on one of those blogs, something that crawled unnoticed into my gReader from somewhere. [Some editing involved…] A group of students go visit a professor, he comes from the kitchen with assorted cups of coke, and after everyone has taken one, he gets the left over, ugly, uncool, last picked glass, and says: “Why did you all go straight for the colourful stylish glasses, when it was the ugly one the only where i did pour some ice?”. As in, you know, do not judge a book by the cover. But the thing is, it is a good message, if only you can realize that it must be applied in a multitude of different levels. If you just get a little more inclusive with good books having bad covers, this fable is probably not making you much good. The general principle here must be applied very, but very, deep. As in you must make “disregard the unimportant” so much a second nature that you actually disregard almost everything that people are running after — in fact, you disregard almost everything PERIOD. But maybe i am just a fool.
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
