16 May 2006

Wake up slowly.Wake up to a feeling that feels like déjà vu.To a world that hasn't been real for 8, 9, 10, 11 hours.A gray sky and a breeze making the apple tree angry, excited.A downpour that lasts maybe two minutes.Memories of dreams which reveal current preoccupations.And fascinations.A tension that galvanizes, that lifts.To forget, to move, to acknowledge a reflection in the mirror.Anticipatingwaitinghoping that Time will let me breathe today.

Despiértate lentamente.Despiértate hacia un sentimiento que parece una paramnesia.Hacia un mundo que no ha sido real durante 8, 9, 10, 11 horas.Hacia un cielo gris y una brisa que crean enojo en el manzano, quelo excitan.A un chaparrón que quizá dura dos minutos.Memorias de sueños que revelan preocupaciones actuales.Y fascinaciones.Una tensión que galvaniza, que eleva.Que lleva a olvidar, a moverse, a reconocer la reflexión en elespejo.Anticipandoesperandocon la expectativa de que el Tiempo, hoy, me permitirá respirar.
