Innumerable politicians start to use the brochure as part of its campaigns. As many public agencies as religious and private entities order livrinhos of twine or, even though they improvise, them.
He has a certain change in what if it relates to the content of the brochure. The poets leave of side the subjects of the daily one and to pass if to interest for ' ' infortnios' ' of bigger reach, informed for the national and international press. In 1978, the First National Festival of cantadores was carried through in Brasilia more than counted on the presence of two hundred violeiros and cordelistas poets.

We always make question of remembering in them our anniversary. Although at different times, every year we wait the time of the carnival. We repeat the same gestures and greetings in Passover. at the end of the year we make always the same trips and familiar meetings to commemorate the Christmas and new year (the places can be different and the people can be others, but we repeat the same commemoration). For these and others it is that we can say, without undeserving the linear dimension of history (therefore the things are and they are not what they are), that we live in circles. This if manifest also in our intentions and objectives. In each end of year? start of another one? we repeat the intentions: to leave to make such thing, to start to carry through one another one To stop to smoke, to stop to drink, to make diet to emagrecer, to start to make physical exercises to improve the health, to move of love, to remodel the house, to study more to pass in a competition old carried through intentions and that they will not be become fullfilled, therefore we do not remain in the same daily life of current repetitions.
The intentions and plans are made at the moment of the party, at the moment of the ticket of one year for the other; they are made not to be fulfilled! But as our life she is cyclical, we repeat the intentions, but we do not produce conditions so that the intentions if carry through. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is often quoted on this topic. therefore, in some cases, in them we even frustramos, therefore we would like to make what we do not make nor we will make. This behavior, we can say, is one of the characteristics of the human being. The human being, among others things, is fantasioso. It creates thousand of intentions that never will be become fullfilled and if it places countless objectives that never will be reached.
