Clarice Lispector

‘She missed the roses.They had left an empty space inside her. Remove an object from a clean table and by the cleaner patch that remains you see that there was dust all around it. The roses has left a patch without dust and without sleep inside her.’

(Clarice Lispector, Family Ties)

Dust is ‘a filha das coisas’ (‘the daughter of things’)

(Clarice Lispector, Um Sopro de Vida)
