Ángelus de Millet


El niño yacía acomodado en su sarcófago perfumado dentro una canasta llena de papas. Alguna peste, algún infortunio doloroso, alguna caída. Su madre reza un Ángelus por el que se va, por la salud de los que se quedan, por el porvenir del que viene.

Millet escondió lo evidente a la vista del vulgo y, de alguna forma, consiguió apuñalar las pupilas de aquel que se acercara a ver el lienzo y le diera la gana ver el eterno luto del que tiene la vida cercenada y mucho tiempo para vivir. Sin embargo, quien pasaba a tomar un café en cualquier restaurante parisino veía tan sólo algo parecido a pena que una pareja derramaba sobre una canasta repleta de papas. (¿O agradeciendo por la buena cosecha, quizá?)

Muy lejos de ahí y en nuestros días, Doña Amelia se inclina sobre la cinta amarilla y observa curiosa los restos perforados y putrefactos de Josué, el patojo que le llevaba el tambo de gas. De la mano de la respetable mujer cuelga la de Javiercito, el niño de seis años y mirada confusa, a quien llevan a ver semejante espectáculo con el fin que conozca el mundo antes que éste le sorprenda a él.

Millet pintó a la muerte en el siglo XVII y la disfrazó con una canasta llena de papas. A Josué lo cubrieron con una sábana y lo disfrazaron de indiferencia.

¡Gracias por haber pasado por mi blog!
Te felicito por esta apología a la obra de Millet, pero no sólo por la defensa sino, principalmente, por la calidad del escrito que has realizado.
Ahora estoy terminando de rendir exámenes, así que, cuando esté con más tiempo libre, voy a recorrer y leer otras entradas de este blog.
Saludos,
Pablo

Acabo de leer tus otros comentarios... ¡Muchas gracias de corazón!
¡Qué gratificante es encontrarme con una fan de Dream Theater!
Tuve la suerte de poder verlos en vivo en las dos ocasiones que tocaron en Argentina. Como muchos, opino que son músicos virtuosos de un nivel increíble. Como pocos, creo que juntos forman una de las bandas más trascendentes de los últimos años (en especial desde el disco conceptual Scenes From A Memory).
Como dije en el comentario anterior, en cuanto pueda voy a recorrer este blog con detenimiento.
Besos,
Pablo

Sé que dejé un par de comentarios ya y no quiero ser molesto...
Simplemente, te agradezco por el dato de la página web de la radio, la cual agregué en mis favoritos y pienso escuchar, y también paso para invitarte a leer un nuevo escrito que acabo de subir.
Besos,
Pablo

Pablo Mariosa dijo...

Esperé a que subieras un nuevo escrito, pero todavía no fue así, por lo que vuelvo a dejar un comentario-invitación para que visites mi blog.
Estoy subiendo distintas partes de un posible relato y quizás te interese leerlo.
Besos,
Pablo

Son tuyas las historias? porque si son, son buenisimas. Hay algo pareccido, peor no tan bueno como el tuyo, que escribi en mi blog se llama: TARDE.
Pero eres muy buena haciendo escribiendo. En verdad.

Pablo Mariosa dijo...

¡Apareciste!
A ver cuándo actualizás tu blog, eh. Tengo ganas de leer algo escrito por vos.
Llegué hasta acá para invitarte a leer la cuarta parte de "Su primer sorbo de conciencia".
¡Buen fin de semana!
Besos,
Pablo

I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

Many websites offer amazing discounts And whoever set the alarm and is doing the experiment sent a little mental message to the sleeper and gave away the time? Bummer? But you cannot prove that The good news is that, like many dog owners, the problems you're having can probably be traced to one simple thing: you're trying to communicate with your dog from a human standpoint, and your dog isn't a human I currently have two furry pals, Ghost (an all-white, male Scottish Fold) and Betty (a female with black and orange tortoise coloring), and I am still mourning the loss of Cali (the calico), who passed away last winter

t It's hard to imagine walking comfortably on glass, but terrazzo floorsare an example of something that's been around for eons. It's made from finely ground aggregates combined with a binding agent. Glass terrazzo can be made from a multitude of combinations, including discarded car windshields, mirrors, beer bottles, recycled porcelain from kitchen sinks, even crushed oyster shells. Don't let the cut become infected. Signs of infection may include a thick, cream-colored pus that oozes from the cut. Look for increased redness, pain, inflammation or red streaks around the wounded skin. Bodybugg ProblemsSince Bodybugg is used in conjunction with a web-based program, you may experience technical issues in regards to the software, setting up your Bodybugg account, uploading information, using specific browsers or retaining data when transferring it from the Bodybugg armband to your computer. Other issues specific to using the Bodybugg system by itself include the armband beeping constantly or not responding. Some users may experience redness or irritation when wearing the armband..

The goal is to get liquid to start evaporating off their skin. Rehydrate slowly. Crash diets are short-lived and often times unhealthy. You need to re-evaluate both your goals and plan on a weekly basis, recording important data and other information like your energy levels, motivation, what foods and exercises have brought you closer to your goals, and what has become an obstacle to your goals. If something is helping you reach your goals, focus on including that in your weekly plan. RestTo heal shin splints, you need to give the tendons, muscles and bones in your lower legs a rest. Avoid any activities that exacerbate the pain in your shins, such as running, dancing or any other high impact sport that you are performing. Giving your body a break to allow it to heal itself doesn't mean you have to give up all physical activities, however.

The use of a sleeping pad made of material called closed-cell foam will make the camper more comfortable and a cloth put on the ground for the entire sleeping apparatus to rest on will help soak up and dampness caused by melting. Feet should be covered with thick socks and a hat can be worn while sleeping to keep body heat in. Every woman absolutely needs a good running bra to minimize bouncing. Running bras come in two types: light support and firm support. Light support is ideal for women with smaller chests (B-cups and under) because it flattens the breast against the body.
