Time Flies and Summer Dies

Summer lives fast and dies young. Back in Portugal, Summer used to last forever - the constant heat, the dry breeze, the neverending sunlight. Can't say I miss it. I'm an Autumn person as much as I'm a dog person. I'm ready for this Summer to end, reading beat poetry and Flaubert sheltered in the local pub snug, with an imaginary soundtrack (synthwave, The Cure, Sad Lovers and Giants) constantly stuck in my head. I find myself smelling the sweet perfume of old book pages, maybe those campfire marshmallows-scented candles are not enough for my greedy nostrils... White tea, dragonfruit and way too many carbs embellish my diet. Most of the time I feel like a bear cub, or a tiny Jack Russell. An ottersloth! Now, bedtime.

the morgan library & museum // new york city, 18.11.2015
This library is really something, isn't it?


Cuban Fish Tacos with Citrus Mango Slaw + Chipotle Lime Crema.
Really nice recipes. Every hour.
I wouldn't say no to these cuban fish tacos with grapefruit mango slaw.

I think that this is a very powerful art piece. 
The following sculptures are a representation of past Africans that were thrown overboard during the middle passage throughout the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. The artist Jason deCaires has created such art to honor African ancestors that past during the greed of slavery.

They look so real😧
These sculptures are so powerful; lest we forget about the TransAtlantic slave trade.

This bedroom is perfect.

Did you know that Keith Richards once threatened to stab Donald Trump? Legen-fucking-dary.

Italian designer Massimo Moreale created these exquisite bookmarks - you can purchase them here.

Griffith Park

Glasnevin has so much to offer - in a non-touristy way: Botanic Gardens, the Royal Canal, river Tolka, Gravediggers pub and even a pyramid-looking church. Griffith Park revealed itself as another pleasant surprise in the Magnificent Northside. The perfect spot for quiet picnics (weather permitting), dog walking and some time alone with our thoughts. Bring a book and a brolly too.
