People have an insular existence. Most are stuck in the climes wherein they were born, and never transcend those climes. However modern technology is doing much in the way of augmenting such a lifestyle. In modern times, things like telephones, planes, trains, cruise ships, automobiles, television, fax machines, cellular devices of a “smart” variety, and the internet have condensed the world. Suddenly people from the middle of Africa are able to get on Facebook and randomly add people from places like China and California. Suddenly people in South Korea are the tourists coming through Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park.
Another place that is very quickly becoming a worldwide prominent location is Rio de Janeiro. One of the reasons Rio is more quickly and powerfully stepping onto the global stage is because of people like Jaime Garcia Dias.
Jaime Garcia Dis is only forty-five years old, but he is already a downright prolific author and blogger. He has twenty different literary publications under his belt, and is exceptionally revered in Brazil and South American Literary circles in general. Dias is an intelligent man with an intelligent upbringing. His father was a writer, and his mother an architect. Between the two, his resume shows Dias was so well-informed he embarked on his first novelization attempt at the tender age of fifteen. And, while there are no shortage of teenagers who decide to be novelists around this age, there are a shortage of writers who manage to make such youthful ambitions successful. Dias is one of these writers. Within ten years of that fledgling attempt at writing, Dias was teaching literature at an academy specializing in teaching kids just out of high school how to become respected authors creating top-quality literature. Dias taught at this school five years, and later became president. In that time he continued to write, and at the current time his most recent work is a compilation of articles.
Dias doesn’t only write novels, he also tweets and is a part time journalist. A prominent newspaper in Rio commissioned him to write articles on a weekly basis, and after a year Dias compiled these into a single document that is now available for purchase.
Dias has become an exceptionally popular author not only in Rio de Janeiro, but throughout Brazil itself, and even into the surrounding South American countries.
There is great variety in Brazil. Every economic class can be found there, and the country is definitely in a period of flux. That’s why guys like Dias exist: they’re the witnesses, the heralds–the messengers of reality in a world going crazy. The populace resonate with such solid voices, and they should. Dias is at the top of his game, and has a career that boasts of many excellent future works, and a YouTube channel that’s in constant content production mode.
