Meanwhile, across the street, some guys are drinking cachaça. They play talk.
_ You see over there? the MOARA? See it?
_ Yeah, I see… it is writen on the top. It is the first time I see it around here. Hmm, what it means?
_ Museum of ArtRageous Art. Those guys come once and while, settle on that vacant lot
and build the place… they sit on those crates.
_ Hmm, what it is all about?
_ About art, my friend... about art! They show nice fantastic paintings, and discuss art for long time,
From here where I am, I can hear comments on dead colors, composition, Veermer, Munsell ...
_ You understand their language? dead colors? Vier???... Munzel??
_ Watch it, moron,,, they listen to very good music, and have tasty drinks. They talk about art my friend.
Ya get me?
_ Whee, hmm… odd... but beautiful and exquisite.
_ Voila…you're catching on. Do you see that woman holding a flute of wine in her right hand?
She is Ms. Katie Coops, an incredible well known MOARA leading artist.
Besides her is Ms. Lee another fantastic artist.
_ And the others?
_ Top notch artists, mate. Renowned artists in the art world. Nice to have them here just in front, isn't?
_ Eh, very nice. And what about that cat?
_ Ah! the cat? If it hadn´t been for the cat, there wouldn't be MOARA.
_ How is that?
_ Ah, forget it.... One day I’ll tell you…
_ Tell me, man, those guys there, they drop by? They talk to you?
_ Some, yes. They cross the street, come over here and beat a chat with me.
_ Are you kidding me? … they understand your english? Hahaha…I bet not…
_ After a pint of cachaça, who would not understand my english. hahaha…some ask for absinthe...
but most drink caipirinha, pinga, they smoke and wonder about how things are going.
_ Oh, yeah...
_ Hmm...And...so what?
_ So what, what? So what? So what, nothing mate… some of them speak a
little far-fetched, even complicated, expressing an artistic free way of philosophycal
thinking., ya know? they verbalize whatever occurs at the edge of awareness. ...But I like it ...
they know what they are talking about, gives me the opportunity to learn things
I never heard of, you know?
_ Free!!!…err… free way of philowhat??? …edge of awaerness??? You're playing me, Pô!!!
Ya joking…Speak right, man.
_ Listen carefully buddy: What is good? What is beautiful? Do we have free will? Does God exist?
Does the world around us exist? What is a person? What is truth? What is evil?
What is the relationship between mind and body?
_ Wait, just wait a bit… this is too complicated for me to understand…
_ It's hard for me too, boob, but I enjoy trying to.., hahaha… at one point I heard one of them saying.:
“When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature. We ought to view
ourselves with the same curiosity and openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought...
Matisse said it” … he completed.
_ Ahhn? Matisse? Funny name…
_ Hahaha those guys are awsum, they are nice good humored people… intelligent ... very fine persons.
They get a little above normal and excited. under the effect of cachaça,
And then they talk a lot… in spurts, all at the same time, is even more difficult to understand them.
But that is all... after a while, they return to MOARA, they sit on those crates and chat until dawn...
Tomorrow they are all gone.
_ Really? I tell you what, I'd like to be around with my sons, the next time they gather again.
_ Sure, but you know something? There are many many more of them.
_ Don't tell me man... how many?
_ I don't know exactly… what I know is that they are open 24/7, and
you can find each and every one of them here .
_ Man!!! I need a double dose of that Grão de Galo.
_ Me to, hahaha.
