Si una puerta se cierra cuando tú ya caminas decidido a cruzarla, te puedes sentir devastado. Después, es necesario pensar que por algo pasan las cosas y que seguramene en el momento preciso se abrirá una nueva puerta.

Hace rato pensaba en los diferentes momentos de las personas. En este momento soy un oso: hibernando y esperando la primavera. Y en este proceso de hibernación –aparentemente un tanto paralizado, se está gestando todo…

I’m still reading Kundera’s  The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I bought the book in Banff, more than a year ago, and though I really wanted to read it, I didn’t till last week. I’m delighted with it. But beyond the fact I’m really enjoying it, I’m surprised and grateful. It’s amazing the way narrative can illuminate our lives. People say that things come to you in a special moment. Well, this book came to me at a very particular eventful troubled moment, and its pages give rise to thoughts which have really helped me to rethink and comprehend what’s going on.

I reproduce here some lines I liked:

Chance and chance alone has a message for us. Everything that occurs out of necessity, everything expected, repeated day in and day out, is mute. Only chance can speak to us.  We read its message much as gypsies read the images made by coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup.

A person who longs to leave the place where he lives is an unhappy person.

Without realizing it, the individual composes his life according to the laws of beauty even in times of greatest distress.

… when the strong were too weak to hurt the weak, the weak had to be strong enough to leave. 

While people are fairly young and the musical composition of their lives is still in its opening bars, they can go about writing it together and exchange motifs […], but if they meet when they are older […], their musical compositions are more or less complete, and every motif, every object, every word means something different to each of them.

…everywhere…

too much movement and a new beginning.

1. Dejar de hacer algo que no disfrutas es realmente liberador.

2. Siempre es un placer encontrarse con amigos a los que has dejado de ver ya sea días, meses o años.

3. No es la mejor opción ver a quienes has dejado de ver meses o años en un lugar donde la música imposibilita el diálogo.

4. Te la puedes pasar muy bien incluso en los lugares a los que detestas ir si la compañía es buena.

4. Se puede envejecer y no perder el buen humor.

5. Quiero una bicicleta.

6. Esperar un camión en el parabús y que todos los camiones te ignoren porque inexplicablemente prefieren hacer la parada una esquina antes, justo donde termina un desnivel, es francamente ridículo.

7. Es maravilloso saber que hay cosas de las que nunca te vas a aburrir.

8. Si un hombre no tiene voz suficiente, jamás debe aceptar ser mariachi.

9. Irónicamente, a pesar de las circunstancias, tengo mucho trabajo pendiente.

10. Da mucha paz sentir que los ciclos se cierran en el momento indicado.

Beyond question…
