On China and other niceties

 

I don’t remember exactly when I wrote La distancia. It must have been between March and June 2019.  Back then, not even the wise men had any idea what was coming. As Constantine Cavafy wrote (Σοφοι δε προσιόντων), the mystical clamor of approaching events was never heard.

I can’t help feeling that everything has taken on another meaning and that distances have grown longer.
