CULTURA y RELIGIÓN


Es imposible aspirar a una cultura martiana sin conocer la Biblia, especialmente el Nuevo Testamento, y sin tener una noción general de las mitologías prehispánicas, así como del hinduismo y el budismo.

El cristianismo sin iglesia, que es el de José Martí, está formulado en las páginas 391-392 del tomo 19 de sus Obras completas.

…hemos de acercarnos a las cosas no desde nosotros mismos sino desde ellas mismas… también en política, buscando, más que la mera tolerancia, la activa fraternidad. (…)

Finally, a museum for the victims of communism


TALK & OPINIONS BY SILVIO CANTO JR.

They hope that it’s ready for 2017, or the 100th anniversary of The Bolshevik Revolution that started communism.   This is from James Kirchick:

“The museum would include witness testimony, artifacts, and interactive exhibits registering the toll communism has wrought in some 40 countries throughout history.
Such an institution would join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in teaching future generations about man’s capacity for inhumanity. “

Of course, no one needs to tell me about the evils of communism. It is something that I saw with my young eyes and heard from my parents’ stories of how communism was imposed on the Cuban people. I also read of the gulags, the Cambodian Killing Fields and Mao’s famine.

To say the least, communism is responsible for 100 million deaths.  It means that communism is the deadliest ideology of the 20th century. Of course, the prisons are still locking up people in Cuba, North Korea and…

A land of sugar


clippedwingsflying

Eleanor approaches me one hot afternoon in May. I am watching the street from a chair that gives me backache. Safe in the shade. The heat like an armour around me that I can feel but cannot see. Close and intense, a humid 35 degrees. Eleanor has flecks on her face. Soft, caramel coloured flecks. The remnants of something she has eaten.

The next morning she asks at breakfast for bread with sugar. I am perplexed. ‘Like I had yesterday at my prima’s house,’ she explains. A sugar sandwich. Bread rolls filled with spoonfuls of sugar. The sugar melting into the bread with the heat. Yesterday’s flecks explained.

When I was four months pregnant with Eleanor I asked a friend what pregnant women in Cuba do when they have no food. Being pregnant there were days when my hunger consumed me, it was all I could think about. The response…

The things that no-one sees


clippedwingsflying

She has the best house in the street. People regularly ask if she’s selling.

It is a lovely house. The porch a haven to sit in the shade. Plants in baskets hanging by a rusty nail that’s coming loose. In the living room impressive carved chairs sit full of dust from the street – they let out a plume every time someone sits down. If you sit on them at the wrong angle the seat, and it’s occupant, fall through the middle onto the floor. Between the chairs fake flowers bloom in pink and green sitting in a broken vase. The living room opens into the kitchen. They’ve just put new tiles down. There is a plastic bag over the kitchen tap because the sink is broken and she doesn’t want it to fall through the work surfaces.

She has pictures of her family in broken frames. Three clocks adorn…

PODEMOS, ahora que ya no hay trincheras…


Featured Image -- 2058

***

Y ahora que ya no hay trincheras

el combate es la escalera

y el que trepe a lo más alto

pondrá a salvo su cabeza

aunque se hunda en el asfalto

la belleza.

*

Míralos como reptiles,

al acecho de la presa,

negociando en cada mesa

maquillajes de ocasión;

siguen todos los railes

que conduzcan a la cumbre

locos, porque nos deslumbre

su parásita ambición.

*

Antes iban de profetas

y ahora el éxito es su meta;

mercaderes, traficantes,

más que nausea dan tristeza,

no rozaron ni un instante

la belleza.

*

Y me hablaron de futuros

fraternales, solidarios,

donde todo lo falsario

acabaría en el pilón.

Y ahora que se cae el muro

ya no somos tan iguales

tanto tienes, tanto vales

¡viva la revolución!

Reivindico el espejismo

de intentar ser uno mismo,

ese viaje hacia la nada

que consiste en la certeza

de encontrar en tu mirada

la belleza.

Darlo-Todo-means-Give-everything
