26 loans, 2 years, One at a time

Not all haste leads to haste. Not all slowness is synonymous with delay. Out of haste, sometimes we go through life without even looking at its face. For lack of haste, sometimes we let life go by, and we stay in a state of quicksand, among abandoned dreams, renounced powers, desires swallowed up by time. This is what Ana Cristina Leonardos and Martha Estima Scodro show with unbounded sensitivity in Festina Lente - A rush slowly. More than weaving a beautiful study of the female soul, Martha and Ana Cristina reveal here what is most human on the surface of finitude, in the construction of identities, in the transience of feelings. With provocations that generate conversations and conversations that generate even more provocations, Ana Cristina and Martha invite their interviewees to dive into a delicate process of intimate excavation, and ask them: "what is the most important question you have asked yourself in the last year and why is it important?". Inspired by this and other questions of rising importance, the authors go through the desires, fears, guilt and guilt that fill the thoughts of these women. In this way, Ana Cristina Leonardos and Martha Estima Scodro write a book of essential urgency and open windows with a view to surprising discoveries, dormant spurts, unacknowledged faults, hopes transformed into steps, invitations to fly through our vastest inner horizons.
