|¡Esa Luz! / This Light!|
In one of his late interviews, Carlos Saura asked that when he died, no one should remember him. It was only important for him to be remembered as long as he lived.
Ah, Señor Saura, this wish will remain unfulfilled.
Thanks a lot. Rest in peace.
Carlos Saura (4 January 1932 – 10 February 2023)

iVivimos en celdas
en colmena de aire!
Nos besamos a través
es la luna!

We live in cells
in a beehive of air!
We are kissing each other
the door of which
is the moon!
"Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence."James Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941)
