My dear (if yet unknown) benefactor,
pardon my brashness, but after you finally get around giving me the house of my dreams, I'd like to ask you also for a little... um... grant, to fulfill another of my dreams. As you probably know, I live at least part-time in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and I'd really like to have some... um... a lot of free time to go and explore it. Afterwards I would write a lot of blog posts with nice photographs, and then you could read them and feel happy to have given me a grant.
Here's some of the things I'd like to do when your generous grant allows me to leave my desk and go out to see the world:
- Go back to Patrick Blanc's vertical garden and see how it's doing these days. It must me in full bloom.
- Study more about the Victorian architecture and go to see and photograph all the houses mentioned in this book that I just bought. (a very touristy thing to do, I know. Sorry.)
- Go visit all the 49 jewels mentioned in the Treasure Map of San Francisco, plus all the other ones mentioned in another wonderful book that I'm reading, and that I will write about tomorrow (just to keep the suspense up).
Confident that you will help me fulfill my wish, I remain yours faithfully,
