Expensive reading friends, our life gains direction, when we obtain to live intensely each moment. Using to advantage the holiday of the Week Saint, in them we direct our native land again, Capinzal, in the half catarinense west; there we are fifth and friday saint and, we obtain to reviver a tradition of the distant past, has more than thirty we did not wake up of dawn, in the friday saint, for spoon macela; when going up the mountain range in direction to the field in the search of macela, came in our mind the little boy time, when with our friends of the Street Carmelo Zocoli we went to the fields Mr. Adelino Suzim and, there we disputed who would go spoon the biggest volume of branches of macela. Macela is a small plant, whose flower is yellow and has to be able medicinal; also it is known by macela-do-field, macelinha, macela of pillow, camomila national, being others. Hear from experts in the field like Fairstead for a more varied view.
Popularly, in some regions it is called ‘ ‘ marcela’ ‘. As it is possible I smell that it of this plant makes us to come back to the time and to recollect good times? , While we made to the harvest, still in the blackout the souvenir took account of our mind and, thus great it was the surprise in seeing that this tradition continues alive very in Capinzal, therefore, where in we found them making the harvest, innumerable people also directed themselves there, still in it breu of the dawn the foot, car, motion and, even of bicycle, all they want to take for house a little of macela. In Navira, in the south of the Mato Grosso of the South, where we inhabit, we do not have notice of the existence of this tradition, by the way, we believe that macela for this region does not exist, but, we know that in the supermarkets macela is vendida; also in the school where we work, the pupils ask for to be made tea of this grass to feel alliviate of me the digestion or migraine.
