LISBON STORIES (IV)*

"The palmtrees looks as if they have been pierced by the breeze coming from the sea, yet their rigid blades barely stir. He simply cannot remember if these trees where here sixteen years ago when he left for Brazil. What most certaily was not here is this huge, roughly hewn block of stone, it looks like an outcrop but is really a monument. If this furious Adamstor is here, then the Cape of Good Hope cannot be far away."
José Saramago (Ricardo Reis in The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis)

* Lisbon story, the film of Wim Wenders, and Ainda, the music of Madredeus, is the inspiration and influence for this series of "stories" from Lisbon.
