To read the ocean currents while the rain hammers at the windows of the house | 2014



For some years–perhaps forever now–I have contemplated the beach and sea of Boa Viagem, where I was born, and where I recognize myself whenever I return there, some thirty years after I first left it. Perhaps this is why I am more interested in rainy days, when clouds cover nearly everything and the rain hammers incessantly at the windows of the house, transforming the landscape.
