This place is perfect.

It’s cool.

It’s beautiful.

Life is good.

Everything is ok, just relax; trust.

Love and dare.

Keep on doing it.

No need to stress.

Have you noticed the colour of this courtyard?


Faded yellow?


No, I don’t think it’s ochre. Orange?

A pale orange.

A faded colonial orange.

Or sand?

It once was the Danish consulate.

In faded time.

There’s a tiled fresco of the black Madonna on the wall.

And two ceramic swallows.

There’s a tortoise that lives here.

I know! I met him, her.

The tortoise has no name.
