to russia with love #2

Dear Aglaya,

Hope all is well with you and that the canned sardines and wine bottle have arrived intact. I have tried my best to accommodate the bottle in a sturdy but cushioned box. I didn’t trust the box they gave me at the store so I decided to build my own from the wood of an old desk I decided I will no longer use. I stuffed the box with paper balls. In case you are curious, those are pages from my novel writing attempts. I will no longer attempt that. For starters, I would need a new desk.






You can unwrap the paper balls and try to read them but they are in portuguese and I think they are more of use to you burning in the fire beneath your samovar. I do hope you have a samovar to brew tea.

I liked the wine bottle box so much I decided to build one for me. Exactly the same model, only much bigger. It’s going to take me some time to do it and I’ll probably have to use some wood from a wardrobe that is no longer used since the last one left.





I like cosy places. I don’t want to sleep in the box, I just wan’t to rest 10 minutes per day in it. I don’t think I have agoraphobia, but I keep being in these empty spaces all the time. It’s like I have a force field around me pushing things away. Like a reverse black hole and it emanates from my sternum. So maybe I’d like a container and contain me. I might get a puppy as well. I like dogs. They relax me because they are imune to the force field. I like canned sardines a lot.

I tried to meditate but it doesn’t work for me. I always feel I am doing it wrong and not focusing. In the end I’m always more depressed and agitated than I was for starters. I tend to prefer building gressini towers and then munch them away while playing mikado with myself, listening to schubert impromptus. I’m really a fun person once you get to know me.





This week was interesting. I moved to a new office and I saw lots of interesting shadows. Hope you had a great week too and that no meteorites have exploded in you vicinity.

Tu russia with love,

    As fotos estão on fire: já li sobre a primeira no D-dreams; na segunda vêem-se os sulcos na estrada, como se fosse um prédio construído num subúrbio com os arruamentos ainda cheios de poeira. Pena a cobertura do prédio estar atulhada, a foto ficaria mais limpa, not your fault. Foi fácil conseguires tirar a foto daquela posição? (pergunta retórica)
