It might surprise people who don't know me well, but my best friends are used to it by now: I keep doing crazy stuff but it ends well & I land safe.
So this photo (when I buy things I demand a story about a piece to be told, it's part of the deal, I am an avid story-gatherer and an enthusiastic story-teller) - taken in Santos, an important oil-extracting center near Sao Paulo, showing a platform that existed until a few years ago, I was told - seemed like an appropriate mood-setting piece for my birthday.
That's how I feel right now: happily jumping into the water. I can't swim, but I know I will make it. Somehow.
To be continued.
