Carta a mi abuelo

Carta a mi abuelo 

Abuelo, o siendo menos cínico, papi, gracias por ser ese hombre que en esta fingida carta es todos los hombres, y como ellos, tú, sensible, sabio y silente alimentas con extraño sosiego el valor de hacer mía la palabra.

En el mundo de las narraciones extraordinarias, te miro y observo y al tiempo de los recuerdos, tu lento parpadear es un movimiento idéntico al mío. Casi tan lento que puedo preverle, con fantástica fascinación, verte habitar el tiempo.

Y en esa frontera de pensamientos, nuestros sueños y valores se hicieron uno con la curiosidad.

Aquella que se vuelca sobre el sentir de la humanidad, y los hombres, que como tú y yo, pertenece a todos los hombres, que sin sospecha alguna intercambian miradas en las extrañas caminatas a ese lugar que llamamos casa.

O país.

Allí papi, es que te invito a ser tu espejo, a que recorras conmigo las calles de este extraño país, donde seres como tú y yo habitaron, y que juzgados por su propia manera de parpadear, fueron asesinados, golpeados, demacrados, ignorados, arrojados, enterrados, desaparecidos, olvidados, desgarrados, torturados, quemados, descuartizados, electrocutados, señalados, apartados, amputados, desarticulados.

Ellos Seres,

Ellos Fueron.

Ellos anduvieron por las mismas calles, buscando sus mismos hogares como tú y como yo que sin ser nostroxs, fueron y son parte de nosotrxs.

Ellos que fueron derrotados, nos vuelven lucha.

Por eso en esta carta te imagino viendo la vida, y en el acto de verte mirarla de manera engañosa, confío en que cada hombre, tiene al menos, unos segundos para derramar una sensible lágrima, tibia y humana, y saberse humano y tibio y lagrima.

En la distancia del tiempo tu enorme piel, fue el primero de los espejos. Allí el estómago era una siembra, el bigote un cuento, los jugos gástricos centenares de almas, y en esa imaginativa realidad, habitaba también un mounstro capaz de la violencia, de locura y dolor.

Al amarte abuelo, padre, amigo

Al odiarte, mounstro y pesadilla.

A través de los ojos del tiempo, puedo verte como antes, como un niño.

Uno que habla los idiomas del cuerpo con su abuelo, que es todos los abuelos

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

precious_passenger: I've read this story on and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it. I love the social commentary and message you're providing here. Very strong start.I also agree with Caitlin that some more detai...

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

Faye Paul: Rachel Sikkema engages me as she opens wide a window into the troubled soul of Danny; a young man living on the edge of life with whom I truly connect throughout this story of his journey. I sit on the edge of my seat, willing him in his choices, as he navigates the life and death chessboard of d...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...
