Amor comigo!

“Nos lugares mais improváveis, o Amor estará sempre presente. Nos espaços inóspitos, no inconsciente, na matemática inexata. E qual o maior desafio humano? Decifrá-lo; reconhecer a sua essência e, enxergar a suas grandeza nas pequenas coisas.”

Marii Freire Pereira comigo!

Those Who Can’t

Inhale Peace; Exhale Love. Joy will Follow! - RUELHA

They say, those who can't do, preach
Maybe, those who can't speak, write
And those who can't write, criticize

Those that have grit, try
Those who don't, let life pass by
Some of them aaccomplish
The others throw stones to tarnish

There are those who do
They may become successful too
And there are those who complain
And find everyone but themselves, vain

Some motivate and encourage
Some others jeer to discourage
The direction you look in
Paves the way for a loss or win

Hieu Kien | and I could not see (1)


By Hieu Kien, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm



by an illusion

a veil of water

saw you swimming

naked feet struggling


you wept

and I could not see


should I fish you out

all wet

us watching the moon together


gathered in the rising moon

the moon isolated from the city lights

clumsily passing by

the magical night



ngồi trên màn nước 

ảo ảnh

thấy bóng em bơi 

đôi chân trần vẫy vùng


em khóc

tôi không thấy 


hay là tôi vớt em lên 

ướt át 

em có thể cùng tôi ngắm trăng


trăng đang lên 

mặt trăng không nằm trong ánh đèn phố thị

chạng vạng qua đi 

một đêm huyền diệu

Novavax developing vaccine that targets new COVID-19 variant – The Jerusalem Post

Novavax Inc said on Friday it had started working on a version of its COVID-19 vaccine to target the variant detected in South Africa and would have the shot ready for testing and manufacturing in the next few weeks.
The company’s COVID-19 shot contains an actual version of the virus’ spike protein that cannot cause disease but can trigger the immune system. The vaccine developer said it had started developing a spike protein specifically based on the known genetic sequence of the variant, B.1.1.529.

Omicron COVID variant fuels Joe Biden’s call for waivers on intellectual property protection for vaccines – ABC News

US President Joe Biden has called on nations meeting at the World Trade Organization next week to agree to waive intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines in the wake of the discovery of the new Omicron COVID variant in South Africa.

“The news about this new variant should make it clearer than ever why this pandemic will not end until we have global vaccinations,” Mr Biden said in a statement.

“This news today reiterates the importance of moving on this [waiving intellectual property protections] quickly.”

Mr Biden confirmed restrictions on travellers from eight countries in southern Africa would be imposed.

All 27 European Union member states and the United Kingdom also temporarily suspended travel to and from southern Africa.

On Channel crossings, France is sick of UK ‘outsourcing’ problems | Immigration and asylum | The Guardian (Me: Boris more boorish than usual and France is not having it!)

France has reacted furiously to what officials variously called a “mediocre, unacceptable and wholly inappropriate” letter from Boris Johnson to Emmanuel Macron about the migrant Channel crossings.

The French interior minister cancelled a planned top-level meeting with the home secretary, Priti Patel,, while government spokesperson Gabriel Attal said France was “sick and tired” of Britain’s “doubletalk and outsourcing of problems”.

The fact that Johnson chose to make the letter public has infuriated Paris at least as much as its content. Macron, who officials said had not seen the letter before Johnson tweeted it, described it as “surprising”, adding: “One does not communicate from one leader to another, on questions such as these, by tweet and by letters that one then makes public.”

Weihnachtsmärkte in Köln 2021

Vivaldi translation of introduction: Due to the Corona pandemic, the Christmas markets in Cologne had to be canceled in 2020, but they are open again this year. Since I had to do a lot in Cologne yesterday anyway, I took the opportunity to look at some of the Christmas markets in the afternoon. These included the Christmas markets on Rudolfplatz, Neumarkt and Cologne Cathedral. The 2G rule (vaccinated and recovered) applies to all Christmas markets in Cologne.

Senioren um die Welt

Aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie mussten die Weihnachtsmärkte in Köln im Jahr 2020 abgesagt werden, doch in diesem Jahr sind sie wieder geöffnet. Da ich gestern sowieso einiges in Köln erledigen musste, nutzte ich die Gelegenheit und sah mir nachmittags einige der Weihnachtsmärkte an. Dazu gehörten die Weihnachtsmärkte auf dem Rudolfplatz, auf dem Neumarkt und am Kölner Dom. Für alle Weihnachtsmärkte in Köln gilt die 2G-Regel (Geimpft und Genesen).

Nguyễn Hưng Quốc | 909 TERCET – BÀI THƠ BA DÒNG (12)


By Nguyễn Hưng Quốc, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm


The quivering red leaves beneath the sunlight

Chilled by the wind

An Autumn ignited by the residing young woman

Những chiếc lá đỏ run rẩy dưới nắng

Gió thốc lạnh

Người thiếu phụ ngồi cháy cả mùa thu
