One day they changed my hip with a prosthesis. Between bed and window with a lot of hospital in the middle, I started building a bridge with the world through this writing that is a branch of another larger one and also mine. I commited this videographic notebook as a gift, even if only I could understand that. And I coupled it with the writting of a book - "Quebra de Linha" - whose last poem, "Quebra de Encanto" was carved into the heart of the images.
