Mr. Rogers’ Dreams

By Paulo Ferreira

Mr. Rogers has been announcing his separation from his wife since the day they got married, four decades ago. Despite her beauty and positive attitude toward life, he resents getting attached to a person who has never been able to give him a sense of happiness. He blames himself for being so passive in pursuing his goals. Now, at the age of eighty, he’s ready to meet new people and experiment unspeakable pleasures. He plans on buying a Porsche and inviting his widowed neighbor to go out. However, as soon as his wife calls him for dinner, his dreams dissipate.

“When I was a kid, my grandmother gave a typewriter for my birthday. From that day on, I haven’t stopped writing.” – the writer
