Special thanks to appropriation artist pedrov_dog, for collage, the inspiration for the stories and poems, and for passing on the useful advice to remember during the times I am feeling down: When a door is closed, God opens several windows.

(Translation from original Brazilian-Portugeuse: Quando se fecha uma porta, Deus abre várias janelas.)
