I am new to your blog. I found it after you visited my blog from Carl Weese's blog. A lot of blogs, sorry. As I posted in answer to your comment on my photo of the crime scene, I love the discipline that having to quote from the book you are currently reading imposes on both your reading and your photos. You have been bookmarked.

Martina, do I misinterpret some personal context in this quote :)) ?

Martina said...

Jim, thanks again ... yes, a lot of blogs out there, and many really good ones, too - I have developed quite an elaborate system in the last years in to get them organised my feedreader, ;-).

Markus, lol - life without reading is impossible ;-) - I found this sentence very very very dubious.

"Espere sentado ou você se cansa" = something like to wait you must seat or you gone be tired. Is from a song and your imag reminded be the words.

ana barata, Chico Buarque? I googled and tried to make sense of all the Portuguese websites ... I found this which I like very much (as far as my translation skills go):

Eu semeio vento na minha cidade
Vou pra rua e bebo a tempestade

dear Zé, could be tough, this chair is waiting for the rubbish collection :-)
