Today I celebrate you – the uncommitted, disenchanted, frivolously indifferent foreigner to the comings and goings of my daily life. You, unknowingly present at the edge of the bottomless deep – the undedicated words, intentional dismissals, prompt criticisms and limited horizons. Your impactful smiles, bereft of momentary intention. Never was it too much.
None of the most important decisions would have arisen had it not been for the faulty pavements you lay before me. Summer shall come, to the patient and patiently trained.
Thank you. [Obrigada.]

Lately I’ve been tucked away in a world of baby steps and constant smiles.
How odd that apparently nothing happens, and yet a river of emotions flows through me and does not stop there – it overflows, sometimes towards everywhere. The cascade of thoughts and hopes, the slow movements that resemble everything, the secret wishes and the day-by-day, minute-by-second-by-an-even-smaller-measure of time that nonetheless, doesn’t stop. These are the days.
