"(...) there were times when he shocked me by his willingness to jump into dangerous situations.(...) Fanshawe would talk to me about the importance of 'tasting life'. Making things hard for yourself, he said, searching out the unknown - this is what he wanted, and more and more as he got older."

"(...) the circumstances under which lives shift course are so various that it would seem impossible to say anything about a man until he is dead. Not only is death the one true arbiter of happiness (Solon's remark), it is the only measurement by which we can judge life itself."

Paul Auster in "The New York Trilogy" (acabei ontem).

Sobre este blog

Somos Sintrenses por adopção, daí o frequente interesse por temas relacionados com Sintra. Actualmente, vivemos na ilha Terceira, nos Açores, mais propriamente na cidade de Angra do Heroísmo, o que transformou este blog, de alguma forma, num canal privilegiado para ir dando a conhecer como é a vida no meio do Atlântico.
