Después de la tormenta...

Dicen que viene la calma. Más bien lo que viene es la recogida, limpiada y evaluada: ¿qué nos quedó? ¿qué se fue? ¿qué es importante? ¿cuál es la enseñanza? ¿qué sigue? Como dicen por ahí, “lo que no te mata te hace más fuerte”. Y como dicen también por ahí “seguiremos en la lucha”.

De malas...

La he pasado tan mal los últimos meses que he olvidado este blog. Y es que para escribir amargadencias pues mejor escribirlas y enviarlas a la Cámara de Diputados, al Administrador de mi Condominio o a Greenpeace... los blogs son para desfogarse, pero no para aventar hiel y amargar al resto de la especie urbana... eso pienso yo. Pero bueno, la vida no ha sido fácil, el dólar sigue a la baja, Lorena Ochoa no liga ni una victoria en México y las FARC nomás no sueltan a Ingrid Bé. La UAM ya regresó a lo pendejo de la huelga, hace un calor del demonio, y la ardilla que visita mi ventana no se quiere comer las nueces de la India que le he puesto.... Mi trabajo de lachi y yo tragando camote.... comiendo pollo rostizado, sopecitos de pollo y demás comida fácil de preparar y sana heridas, pues entre bocado y bocado, entre salsa verde y roja, el mundo es menos duro.... En fin, ya pasará abril y llegará mayo, el mes de las flores, de los puentes, de las madres, ¡a ese le apuesto!
