Dear visitor from Mountain View, California:
A few long due words of gratitude for making me feel that this blog is somewhat useful, that someone does in fact read it almost on a daily basis. Whenever I feel tempted to put an end to it – and I frequently do, especially on Sundays – I think “Well, my Mountain View reader will miss it” and change my mind. Though I’m not an obsessed visits tracker, I sometimes read what you read, just to re-encounter myself.
I think I could have written this in Portuguese, but chose English instead, just in case. And for the same reason Portuguese teenagers prefer to write their first poems in English.
