“And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you”
(Linkin Park, Shadow of the day)
"Everything depends therefore on encountering thought at its source. (…) My own being can be judged by the depths I reach in making these historical origins my own."
Karl Jaspers (1941) “On My Philosophy, from Existentialism from Dostoyevsky to Sartre”
"my house", she said
so, once i was in Portugual looking for museum and a little bit lost (like all good tourists), when i’ve finally found this building.
the gate was open, i walked a couple of steps and when i was about to get in i saw an old friendly lady coming out.
i asked her if that was the museum i was looking for, but she laughed and shook her head and said: “oh, no, that’s my house, the museum is just down the street”.
i’m glad i took a picture of the place, just the same: its structure was much more beautiful than the museum itself, as i was about to find out a couple of minutes later.
