Escuchando en días pasados una reseña sobre el libro Mr. Gwyn (2011) del italiano Alesandro Baricco, me entró curiosidad por conocer su obra, a la que me adentro por vez primera mediante SEDA (Seta, 1996).
En Seda, Baricco nos narra la historia de Hervé Joncour, soldado francés que a mediados del siglo XIX es invitado por un comerciante de su pueblo, Lavilledieu, a emprender un aventurado y riesgoso viaje hasta Japón para proveerle de huevos de gusanos de seda oriundos del en ese entonces misterioso y atrincherado país, y con lo cual provocaría la bonanza económica de la región. La experiencia marcará su modo de vivir tanto en lo social como en lo sentimental por el encuentro con Hara Kei (gobernante de la aldea donde se surtirá de la mercancía) y su concubina en turno.
El libro es de lectura ágil y para consumirse en un par de tardes, con una narración alejada del rebuscamiento y profundizando sobre todo en las emociones y explicación de las conductas de los personajes. Como dato al margen, el director francés François Girard llevó de muy lograda manera esta historia al cine (Silk, 2007). Comparto un breve extracto del mismo:
Hervé Joncour siguió por días conduciendo una vida retirada, dejándose ver poco en el pueblo y pasando el tiempo trabajando en su proyecto del parque que tarde o temprano construiría. Llenaba hojas y hojas de diseños extraños, que parecían máquinas. Una tarde Hélene le preguntó:
-¿Qué son ?
-Es una jaula.
-¿Y para qué sirve?
Hervé Joncour tenía los ojos fijos en aquellos dibujos.
-Tú la llenas de pájaros, todo lo que puedas; después, un día que te suceda algo feliz, la abres de par en par y los miras volar afuera.

I’m impressed by your writing. Are you a professional or just very knowledgeable?

Thanks for posting this! Brings back many fond memories of my childhood. My grandma and grandaunt used to make this when we were growing up. They're too old now to cook so it's my turn to do it 🙂
"this plan of turning Mexico into a giant Greece at American expense seems like another bullet dodged."America dodged straight into the path of two other bullets – Afghanistan & Iraq. At least spending $100 billion a year on improving Mexico's roads (and building the odd $32 million bridge) might have benefited the American tourists heading down south.
Most help articles on the web are inaccurate or incoherent. Not this!
I own an Edge 705, and was a total Garmin fan. I was so disappointed about no upgrades that I bought a Powertap instead of waiting for Vector to be released.Will think twice before getting a new Garmin..

Btw, how can people be convicted with the irresistible impulse defense? If they couldn’t resist the impulse it is just about the same as a force of nature; it is like trying to blame someone for the death of a person that was hit by lightning (if the accused isn’t known to posses the ability to influence lightning strikes of course); people can’t, or at least shouldn’t, be held accountable for things they have no control over…

I don't think that most NZ local councils explain the taxing system very well, either. It's improbable that a local government in NZ could go bankrupt, but Central Government in Wellington takes control if it thinks something's gone wrong. The irony is that when things do go wrong, it's often because of something Central Government has required local councils to do, without giving them the money to do it.
I don’t know who you wrote this for but you helped a brother out.
The purchases I make are entirely based on these articles.
Good job making it appear easy.
Thanks Dave. You’re spot on. Many third world nations enjoy blackouts and brownouts already as a normal part of their day. You can only imagine what impacts it will have on larger countries. Glad to see Australia is concerned about what kind of fossil fuel future we have.

dduck DE,”I guess growing up as a boy being told that men oppress women is at bottom the real issue.”Aha, I’m beginning to understand this a little better.I think coming from an older generation, I missed what happened to you and your generation. I never was told “men oppress women”. As a first generation American brought up on the lower East Side of NYC, I guess they didn’t talk about it, or were ignorant of it.
Your baby blankets look absolutely adorable. I love how they are unisex so You can save it for the next baby or pass it down to family and friends. I have a seven month old son named Oliver who would love to snuggle up in the yellow/grey blanket.

Pitas also took 45 minutes to get falafel out to me on an afternoon where we were the only table… I didn’t realize tangiers was the same owner because the food is better there as well.

Cool! That’s a clever way of looking at it!
Ger:So you know nothing about Russia by your own frank admission. Then why bother commenting? It sounds like a skit fom the Daily Show.Â”I dont know anything about the issues, Jon. I just want to debate. About the debate. About the debating of the debate. Not about the issuesÂ”Yup. You got me to a tee.It’s interesting to see though that you clearly see LA R as a serious issue facing modern Russia, otherwise all this harping on about her would just be debating “about the debating of the debate” now wouldn’t it? xxx

The accident of finding this post has brightened my day
Belle parole, ma invece di pensare ad aumentare i telefono cellulare, che vedo se ne parla tanto, pensassero a portare i telefoni fissi a casa dei cittadini, anzi, aumentassero le linee, che basta tirare i cavi, e aggiungere altri, per loro risulta piÃ¹ difÃ¬cile, perche i costi sono piÃ¹ bassi ovviamente.Saluti:)
You put the lime in the coconut and drink the article up.
That’s really thinking out of the box. Thanks!
What I find so interesting is you could never find this anywhere else.
With all these silly websites, such a great page keeps my internet hope alive.
No doubting these are great web/internet applications, but in what way are they grid infrastructures (using the Foster threepoint definition of a grid)?(I’m not trying to be difficult, I’m trying to understand the point about what one could have been doing with the architectures available, had one not been trying to do ID).

my fav os the top one and there is another British company that did this also , very nicely, I agree about the semblance to MKC who is way to much to me and I got sick of quickly. She really turned out tons of it and it alll began looking the same. And No way can I imagine th time but didn’t you have a post that told us how to sew the patchworks together, different shapes of fabrics…cat
It’s always a relief when someone with obvious expertise answers. Thanks!
It may interest many of the readers here to know that the original reasons behind the DrugWar had nothing to do with ‘public health’ and everything to do with racism and eugenics. The curious may go and for verification of this. It wasn’t so much about use, but about who was presumed to be using, and what was believed to happen when such use occurred.For example, it was taken as Gospel in the first two decades of the 20th century that Blacks were thought to become crazed rapists of White women while on cocaine, and invulnerable to .32 caliber bullets, hence the upgrade to .38’s last century. On the basis of this nonsense we have our drug laws.

Oh what a wonderful post! I’m so glad Melbourne was everything you needed it to be. And those little people in your life are so much richer for having you around. Happy Birthday!
That’s 2 clever by half and 2×2 clever 4 me. Thanks!
"hump a machine gun for 30 days"A break from humping buckets of concrete rubble out of basement and hauling crushed stone and sakrete back down does sound nice too. Would that be a live exercise?
Hi Debs – I know how you feel! I planted the peach coloured one on Saturday – right now the flowers are falling off and I am hoping, hoping that it will settle happily and flower again. I hope the move to my garden hasn’t affected it negatively. We shall see if our Rhodos survice …

Just do me a favor and keep writing such trenchant analyses, OK?
My heart goes out to this guy. I have had cellulitis on my leg ONCE and it was just excruciatingly painful. I can’t imagine going through this as long as he has. He’s a rockstar in my mind. Keep on’ keeping on.
Begun, the great internet education has.
Howdy! I know this really is kinda off topic but Iâ€™d figured Iâ€™d ask. Would you be considering exchanging links or possibly guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses many the same subjects as yours and I think we could significantly benefit from one another. If you’re interested really feel free of charge to shoot me an e-mail. I appear forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog from the way!
What a pleasure to meet someone who thinks so clearly
In awe of that answer! Really cool!
Heh – spoilsports are important, Sadducee! They’re enemies of groupthink.I’m less interested in those smaller details of the article, than I am in overarching PR win he achieves. The analysis is in the works right now..

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
I reckon you are quite dead on with that.
I’m so glad that the internet allows free info like this!
There is also a WTF stamp (courtesy urban outfitters) which I would enjoy more. But 1) stamping it on my phone when I read your posts would only serve to fuck up my phone a little more and 2) apparently it’s considered “unproffesional”… Whaaaaaaaaa?
I would say you did a lot of research on this topic before you started writing on it. You have solid points listed here that I agree with and appreciate.
Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY?
People normally pay me for this and you are giving it away!
Whoever wrote this, you know how to make a good article.
Hey, you’re the goto expert. Thanks for hanging out here.
Love your blog! Our story is almost identical to yours. Olivia is about 6 months younger than Noah. We love reading, too! Goodnight Moon has been a favorite. We just got Phil Smouse’s My Big Book of Bible Stories. It is a hoot to read!
I’m not sure why but this web site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
