Sounds & Thoughts for Your 6' Walk - Ep. 2

Sounds and Thoughts For Your 6' Walk - Ep. 2

A few different conversations this week have influenced what today's show is. First, a friend of mine's virtual workshop is looking at communication in this time and designing devices or platforms to address a user group of their choosing. In response to the students' proposals, the conversation became about how many of them were trying to replicate interpersonal contact through virtual media- like creating situations for the personal to be shared or for teamwork. Then after listening to The Daily Rind (with Charlotte Mathai, Sundays at 2pm), I was thinking about how radio can express someone's personality and shared history in a way that's different from a conversation with someone in person. So after asking my mom, Fatima, if I could ask her questions about sewing, (one of her favorite things to do) I recorded her stories and descriptions to include today. For next shows in the coming weeks, I want to continue these kinds of conversations and learn more about the people I know.

My mom's name is Fatima.
The soap opera mentioned is called Amor Eterno.
My mom grew up in a small beach town in northeastern Brazil. Aracati is a neighboring city that she went to school in since there weren't schools in Icapuí at that time.
Her mom's name is Idelia.
Rosemary is my mom's niece.
Edinha is my aunt, my mom's older sister. Edinha is short for Edna.
In the same way that my mom goes by Fatinha to many who know her.


Fatinha : Do you remember the neighbor that was on the other corner where I started going to her house to learn how to sew?  
Edinha : Where?
Fatinha : In Aracati
Edinha : No
Fatinha : No?
