Borges + Galeano: love the wind


Window on Memory (II)
A refuge?
            A belly?
            A shelter to hide you when you’re drowning in the rain, or shivering in the cold, or spinning in the wind?
            Do we have a splendid past ahead of us?
            For navigators who love the wind, memory is a port of departure.

Eduardo Galeano, Walking Words

The Church says: The body is a sin.
Science says: The body is a machine.
Advertising says: The body is a business.
The body says: I am a fiesta.

Eduardo Galeano, Walking Words
