resuming

CNN, Clube Nacional de Natação, past Thursday, January 14th.

Portugal is back in confinement. A strange one since all schools, from kindergarten to post-graduate university studies are open to in-person teaching… However, I had to give up swimming every day. I had resumed swimming in January after a self imposed break, thinking that things were starting to normalize, but no.

So, I’m back to my long walks… and morning sketches.

At the end of the living room, an extra small room. Almost like a large bow-window, bowing over the avocado tree. CDs and DVDs and coffee table books are stored there along with an old stereo multiplex, a relic from the 1990’s, that still offers a cassete reader. A place of tropical relaxation. An imaginary winter garden in Rio de Janeiro’s winter. And interesting high corners too.

There is a typical Portuguese expression “conhecer os cantos à casa”, literally translated as “knowing the corners of a house/home” that means that you are feeling at home in a place or a situation or that you are now in the possession of all the relevant data or social interactions. Now I’m really starting to know the corners of the house. Another bedroom, this one more familiar, daily and nightly familiar.

What used to be a children’s room is now a guest’s room. Some traces of infancy still lingering close to the ceiling, though.

A room that is also a storing facility. Travel bags and boxes full of important things such as: used toys, Christmas decorations, old Carnival costumes and lovely rags ready to be recycled. In the lower levels, a Fine Arts student struggles to keep up with her own excellence standards working on remote.

After the previous views from the windows, a new chapter starts: Views of the four upper corners in rooms. A well kept secret, a brave new world to explore… Here’s the studio. Taxes file from 2001… The travel books’ shelf, city and country guides; boxes of long forgotten very important documents, an edge of comics books. A lovely paper lamp floats over everything like a benign ufo.
