    I gemelli Vicario devono vendicare l'onore perduto della sorella Angela e per questo devono uccidere Santiago Nasar, il colpevole; una serie di piccoli eventi, spesso anche banali, non farà che agevolare i fatali piani sul povero Santiago che, malgrado tutti conoscano i rischi che sta correndo, non riuscirà ad evitare la sua sorte.

Nel IV libro dell'Eneide, invece, è il destino di Enea ad essere ineluttabile. Malgrado egli abbia incontrato la bellissima Didone, regina di Cartagine, e si siano innamorati entrambi d'una passione che li travolge completamente, il fato dell'eroe troiano non può aspettare: deve necessariamente lasciare Didone e la terra dei Fenici, approdare nel Lazio e dare vita alla stirpe che condurrà a Romolo, a Cesare, ad Augusto e, dunque, alla nascita e all'espansione di Roma.

In entrambe le storie, dunque, il vero protagonista è il destino, e non è un caso: Virgilio e Garcia Marquez, infatti, pur vivendo a migliaia d'anni di distanza, hanno la stessa concezione circolare del tempo: dunque, che non solo sia il passato ad influenzare il futuro, ma anche il contrario: è inevitabile, perché è il suo futuro, che Santiago muoia per mano dei gemelli Vicario; ed è inevitabile altrettanto, purtroppo per Didone, che Enea ricostruisca la sua vita non a Cartagine ma in Italia.

È questa una concezione del tempo ripresa dalla civiltà greca, che si basa sull'accettazione dei limiti dell'uomo sul proprio destino, scritto addirittura nel suo passato, e sull'importanza di vivere il presente più del futuro; è dunque una visione trascendentale? Non per forza. Il nostro destino può essere inciso nel nostro carattere, nelle nostre inclinazioni naturali, nel nostro modo di pensare: basta solo capirlo e accettarlo.

    Summer reading. My first time reading The Wind in the Willows. The author, Kenneth Grahame, worked as a banker his whole life. He retired early for health concerns and crafted these stories for his son Alastair. A winding river this journey can be.....

And sometimes I think Lewis Carrol’s writing is too clever for me to catch all the nuance and depth.

“In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: 
Ever drifting down the stream- Lingering in the golden gleam- Life, what is it but a dream?” - Lewis Carrol.

“There’s nothing––absolutely nothing––half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.”

    Small simple post: What influences were the most significant in shaping Russian culture & identity?To some extent the Vikings influenced the Russians, since there is the theory that the Runes used by the Norsemen is what helped develop the Cyrillic alphabet, but as we know, St. Methodius and St. Cyril invented it, but the theory still lingers that they were influenced. The Vikings, or the Rus, also are credited with giving birth to Russia, since they were the first to begin making larger communities of people to unite them together, leading to their baptism into the church and establishing a commercial foothold. The Byzantine had influence as well, since missionaries traveled up to the Slavic peoples and helped to convert the Slavs from paganism to the Orthodox faith. Interesting as it is, the Slavic peoples are split between the Cyrillic and Latin alphabet. For example, my family and I are Polish and the tongue uses the Latin alphabet along with those from the Western Slav group typically. This is since, when converted to Christianity, the Western half favoured Roman Catholicism and wanted to have their ties closer to the Church in Rome and so they adopted the Latin alphabet to form off of. The Eastern half, however, is predominantly Orthodox, for example my Ukrainian neighbours, and so it leads to the assumption that the countries more of using the Cyrillic alphabet are Orthodox to have their ties there.

    🚆 Eras vos o fue ella?🚆 I Parte.

Subió en la estación Castro Barros. Tenía la cartera abierta, el pelo revuelto y un perfume que desentonaba con el vagón. Se sentó a mi lado. Sacó un libro y se sumergió en la lectura.  Intentaba descubrir la portada del libro pero sentí una mirada insistente. Levanté la vista y en el asiento de enfrente, un hombre que parecía de la misma edad que ella, la observaba. Era como si estuviese viendo un fantasma.  Para mis adentros, yo ya empezaba a tejer esta historia. 
Vestía traje y corbata. Tenía la barba de dos días y llevaba un portafolio negro que combinaba con los zapatos perfectamente lustrados. No hacía calor, pero estaba sonrojado. La inocencia le partía la cara en dos. Debe haber repetido mil veces para sus adentros “mírame, mírame, mírame”, porque de repente ella frunció el ceño y levantó la vista del libro. Entonces lo vio.

    #Darkness is the absence of light, it can exist on its own. The beauty of #light is how heat breathes life and color into all things. “light” and “darkness” are just a binary toggle between “radiation” or “not radiation”. Darkness is a symbol of evil or mystery or fear. The darkness is almost a monster waiting to swallow you whole. The emotional response to an absence of light has inspired #metaphor in #literature, #symbolism in art, and #emphasis.

    ¿Qué hacer cuando la creatividad no fluye? Bueno, yo me salgo a correr escuchando música de Su Majestad, Queen. Cuando regreso sigo sin encontrar cómo fluir mi lado creativo, pero por lo menos sudé y quemé calorías 😅😂 No nos dejemos engañar por lo que vemos aquí, la vida de muy pocas personas es “perfecta”, lo que vemos en redes es un producto pensado y editado, no un reflejo de la realidad. ¿A qué viene todo esto si se supone que esto es una cuenta de bookstagram? Chica, no lo sé, pero me apetecía sacar un poco de la hostilidad que hoy llevo dentro 😅🤣😂 porque no todo en redes debería ser “todo es bello”, “buenos días”, etcétera 💆🏻‍♂️

    What would things be like — what would YOU be like — if we lived in a world that wasn't shaped and formed and constrained by gender roles? This might be a fruitless thought experiment, as gender is such a deeply embedded and suffuse construct. It's difficult to even know where the shadows and contours of gender begin and end. Whatever the case may be, it's worth resisting the more archaic, restraining, and corrosive elements of gender roles and expectations. We ought to push back against cultural inertia and decide on our own terms what's worth embracing and what's worth challenging. Are traditional conceptions of gender something to be discarded?⁣⁣ What's worth keeping and why?
