Timber train no. 83218/9 San Xuan - León Clasificación at Campumanes Station.

 

Here, there and everywhere...

 

Casi todos los años solemos ir al menos en una ocasión por el cordal del Puerto de San Isidro, comenzamos por las inmediaciones de la Estación invernal de Fuentes de Invierno, una vez ganada la altura seguimos hacia el sur con la intención de captar alguna Erebia.

 

Las Erebias son unas mariposas oscuras con unos ocelos rojos punteados de negro, supongo que serán oscuras para absorber toda la radiación solar posible, lamentablemente si ya de por si me resulta difícil verlas, después de seguirla con cautela por terrenos poco recomendables siempre suele ser la misma, la Erebia meolans que suele estar acompañada de otra compañera de vuelos de nombre Erebia palarica, y nada mas, kilómetros y kilómetros y siempre las mismas especies en los altos, habrá que tomar vitaminas e ir a Picos de Europa, pero ya tendrá que ser para el año que viene, pues suelen volar hasta mediados de Setiembre.

 

El caso es que debido al viento que soplaba, pasaba de brisa, ya era poco agradable caminar por zonas cimeras y el seguir el cordal hacia León no era la opción mas segura, así que descendimos y fuimos al lago Ausente, a unos 1750 metros de altura,

 

Después de caminar todo lo caminable, llegamos a pensar que en realidad el lago si estaba ausente porque no aparecía por ningún lado, hasta que allá por una estrecha senda blanca de piedra molida y unos cuarenta y cinco grados de inclinación llegamos a aquel lugar de increíble belleza, habíamos leído que el lago tenía especies endémicas y escasas, me imaginé tritones, miré con atención pero no vi nada, demasiada extensión de agua..

 

Nos sentamos sobre una cómoda piedra plana, y a nuestra espalda oímos gritos, tres niñas, una llorando tiraba piedras a las otras dos a orillas del lago y sus padres decían que había que poner música, caray, pensé, un lugar dedicado al silencio, estaba siendo machacado por aquellas voces infantiles de soprano, octava arriba o abajo, y al mismo tiempo tomaron el lago como su piscina particular, bueno ! son cosas de turistas accidentales..

 

Yo a lo mío, tomé unas fotos del lago con luces muy agradables, quedé muy contento, las nubes en aquel cielo azul proyectaban su sombra sobre el terreno haciendo de el paisaje una verdadera preciosidad.

 

Tal vez no hayamos captado las Mariposas que esperábamos, pero ese día pero vinimos cargados con las imágenes de bellos paisajes.

 

Ya para acabar el día decidimos ir a comer, eran las seis de la tarde y nos fuimos con ese reparador bocadillo king-size super-luxury, al lago Isoba, como siempre el bocadillo estaba excelso, mientras comíamos, el paisaje bajo aquella luz variable era como una película a cámara lenta, Como un timelapse suave..

 

Es un final de temporada en el que habiendo caminado mas que el pasado año, tomamos muchas menos fotos a mariposas que el pasado año, habrá quién diga que todo obedece a ciclos biológicos, pero tantos calores, tantas lluvias, tormentas a destiempo no son normales.

 

Me dicen que el deshielo comenzó primero éste año y con el, el despertar de la primavera engañó a destiempo a infinidad de "bichinos" que comenzaron antes de tiempo sus ciclos vitales, que de igual manera los finalizaron antes, técnicamente ya hace unas semanas que comenzó el otoño, no el astronómico, sino el real.

 

Buen otoño a todos.. Se acabó lo bueno.. aunque aun podemos capturar los colores cambiantes del otoño, lo que no es poco..

  

**********

 

I have been told that the melting started first this year and with the awakening of spring untimely deceived by a lot of arthropods and plants soon began their life cycles, which ended just as the earlier, technically a few weeks ago that began the fall, not astronomical, but real.

 

Good fall at all .. Gone are the days long, and when switching to winter time, they left with our light, Hi!

even though we can capture the changing colors of autumn, which is no small thing, but an entire natural spectacle ....

 

**********

 

Díxome un paxarin que'l destemple empezó primero ésti añu y col, l'espertar de la primavera engañó a destiempu a infinidá d'artrópodos y plantes qu'empezaron mui a tiempu los sos ciclos vitales, que d'igual manera rematar antes, técnicamente yá va unes selmanes qu'empezó la seronda, non l'astronómicu, sinón el real.

 

Bon seronda a toos.. Acábense los díes llargos, y cuando camuden a horariu ivernizu, colar cola nuesa lluz, Je!

anque entá podemos prindar los colores cambiantes de les fueyes de los árboles, de los montes de fayes, lo que nun ye poca cosa, sinón tou un espectáculu natural....

Regne Unit (o potser no tant), aprox. 1970 - Girona, març 2017

  

L'església de la Nativitat de la Mare de Déu de Durro (o Santa Maria de Durro), és una església parroquial romànica del poble de Durro que va ser declarada monument historicoartístic l'any 1980. Pertany al terme municipal de la Vall de Boí, dins de l'antic terme de Durro, sempre a l'Alta Ribagorça. És una de les esglésies romàniques de la Vall de Boí que han estat declarades, en conjunt, Patrimoni de la Humanitat per la UNESCO.

 

L'edifici s'integra en el conjunt d'obres pròpies dels constructors que bastiren les esglésies de la vall de Boí. En aquest cas, ateses les característiques generals del temple, es tractaria d'una església bastida en una data lleugerament més tardana que la resta, que podria coincidir amb la segona meitat del segle XII, amb una clara influència de l'obra de Santa Maria d'Alaó (Sopeira), que també és palesa a l'església de Santa Maria de Cóll. L'església de Durro fou profundament reformada amb la construcció de la volta en una època indeterminada, probablement al segle XIII, i la substitució de la capçalera original -formada per un absis semicircular del qual resten alguns vestigis- pel transsepte que envaeix el porxo que, com a Erill la Vall, s'havia afegit el cos de l'església.

 

Aquests porxos presenten unes característiques constructives que l'emparenten amb l'obra de Sant Romà de Casós, Sant Climent d'Iran o la propera capella de Sant Quirc de Durro, i ha d'ésser datat, com a molt aviat, a la segona meitat del segle XII. En tot cas sembla raonable suposar que l'edificació del porxo fou contemporània de la construcció de la volta de la nau i sempre anterior a la substitució de l'absis primitiu pel transsepte.

 

Modernament, el temple fou restaurat el 1983, i l'any següent el campanar, pel servei de Patrimoni Arquitectònic de la Generalitat de Catalunya, sota la direcció de l'arquitecte Carles Solsona. Entre el 2000 i el 2002 hi ha hagut una altra campanya de restauració del conjunt monumental.

 

És un temple de notables proporcions, compost per una única nau, llarga i estreta, que havia estat capçada, vers llevant, per un absis semicircular avui desarticulat i substituït per un cos d'edifici de pla trapezial que fa les funcions de sagristia. La nau es coberta amb una volta de canó de mig punt, de perfil lleugerament apuntat, dividida en quatre trams per arcs torals, que recolzen sobre uns ressaltats encastats els murs perimetrals. A l'angle nord-est es dreça un campanar de torre modificat posteriorment, que no segueix la proporció esvelta dels campanars de la vall.

 

L'estructura de l'església es complica amb la incorporació d'un porxo, construït més tard, sostingut amb arcades, estès al llarg del mur meridional, on a l'extrem de llevant es lliurarà al braç sud d'un transsepte que ocupa l'àmbit de l'últim arc del porxo. La base del campanar forma el braç nord del transsepte, on ha desaparegut l'absis, del qual queda l'arc d'obertura al mur de llevant del campanar. Tot el conjunt, llevat del campanar, que té una coberta piramidal, és abrigat amb una teulada de doble pendent, recoberta amb llicorelles que abraça també el porxo.

 

El temple és il·luminat pràcticament per un sol vitrall situat a la capella lateral sud, atès que la nau només té un finestral central obert al mur de ponent, de doble esqueixada i arc de mig punt. La porta s'obre al mur sud, dins el porxo i és feta amb un arc de mig punt, ressaltat per dures arquivoltes que arrenquen de sengles columnes laterals. Al mur nord, prop de l'angle nord-est, hi ha una altre porta, lliça, sense decoració.

 

La nuesa dels paraments de la nau, accentuada per la uniformitat de l'aparell, només és trencada per uns ressalts angulars i per una cornisa estesa al llarg dels murs laterals, parcialment decorada amb un escacat, que és sostinguda per arcuacions cegues sobre mènsules. L'aparell, fet amb carreuons de mides mitjanes molt ben treballats, segueix l'habitual disposició de filades horitzontals, en aquest cas perfectament ordenades. La sagristia, pel que sembla, fou bastida, si més no en part, amb els carreus de l'absis prèviament enderrocat, entre els quals n'hi ha uns que destaquen perquè tenen elements esculpits, especialment un arquet amb un carpet perfectament definit.

 

Coronant el mur de ponent resten uns brancals d'una probable espadanya, avui desballestada.

 

El campanar, erigit a l'inici del mur nord, prop de la capçalera, és constituït per una torre de planta quadrada, originada a partir d'una socolada llisa sobre la qual se sobreposen cinc pisos tot i que el darrer, que acaba amb una coberta piramidal de pissarra, ha estat escapçat per la meitat.[1] La separació entre els pisos, seguint els esquemes decoratius de les esglésies de la vall de Boí, és determinada per arcuacions cegues desenrotllades sota frisos de dents de serra. Dissortadament aquest campanar va sofrir, a més de l'escapçament, un seguit de transformacions que van comportar l'aparedament del finestrals del primer pis i del segon (avui oberts, després de la restauració de què ha estat objecte) i la substitució dels finestrals romànics geminats per uns altres d'ogivals al tercer pis i al quart. Així mateix, l'accés primitiu, que comunicava amb la nau, fou obturat per un mur, on s'obrí un porta.

 

Una de les particularitats d'aquest campanar és que té ornamentació llombarda (dents de serra i arcuacions cegues) també a l'interior.

 

La portada d'accés a l'església de Durro que, com ja s'ha esmentat, és oberta sota un porxo, presenta una decoració escultòrica força senzilla, però correcta. Per sobre del dos arcs en gradació amb arquivoltes sostingudes per columnes amb capitells, hi ha un arc que deriva del guardapols, tot i que la seva funció és únicament ornamental; una sanefa escacada cobreix tota la superfície. El mateix motiu ocupa tota la línia inferior de la cornisa d'aquesta mateixa façana, sota l'embigat que cobreix el porxo.

 

Per sobre de l'arc derivat del guardapols, just sobre la línia a la clau de l'arc de la porta, hi ha un crismó treballat en baix relleu força interessant. La imatge del crismó, monograma de Crist, és formada per caràcters X i P, que són les dues primeres lletres gregues del nom de Crist; i les lletres A (alfa) i w (omega), com a principi i fi de totes les coses que representen la figura de Crist. Els quatre caràcters en combinació són inscrits en un cercle. Aquest, és alhora, inscrit en un quadrat, els espais lliures del qual són ocupats per quatre figures. Dos ocells afrontats ocupen els carcanyols superiors, tot recordant compositivament el tema iconogràfic d'origen paleocristià dels paons bevent de la font de la vida. Els carcanyols inferiors són ocupats per dos animals, un bou i potser un lleó, que podrien simbolitzar dos dels quatre evangelistes. La resta dels espais lliures (franges verticals del quadrat entre els animals superiors i els inferiors) és ornada per elements florals o vegetals que es tornen a repetir en els capitells de la portada.

 

Aquests capitells, quatre en total, presenten una decoració força senzilla i malmesa per les restes de guix que amaguen els detalls del relleu. Els dos externs són decorats amb fulles força estilitzades, que recorden simplement l'ús de fulles d'acant en la decoració del capitell clàssic. Un d'ells, el del brancal de ponent, és coronat per un cimaci ornat per una sanefa escacada. Els dos capitells interns presenten bàsicament figures d'animals contraposades que ajunten els angles. Recorden, tot i el mal estat en què es conserven, les composicions més clàssiques del romànic rossellonès, a base de figures lleonines contraposades i en actituds diverses. El capitell de la banda de ponent presenta a la cara externa un quadrúpede que recorda la figura d'un ase, mentre que a la cara interna presenta un rostre humà al centre -ocupant el lloc del dau central, fet que també és usual en tota l'estructura de tradició rossellonesa- i les restes del que potser era un altre quadrúpede; la parella d'animals, doncs, es presentaria afrontada i alçant una pota davantera cap a l'angle. El capitell de la banda de llevant, en canvi, sembla presentar una parella de lleons, oposats i girant el cap vers l'angle tot flanquejant un vegetal derivant de l'acant que ocupa l'angle.

 

La part alta del tambor d'aquests dos capitells figurats, que es confon amb el que pot ser el cimaci, és decorada mitjançant una sanefa de fulles entrellaçades semblants a la del crismó, i en el cas del capitell de ponent, recolzada sobre una mena de motllura trenada. El collarí dels dos capitells amb decoració vegetal és llis, mentre que els dos figurats és torçat.

 

Les combinacions ornamentals, com també el repertori vegetal o floral emprat en tota la decoració descrita, juntament amb la utilització d'un repertori de imatges clàssic en el romànic que ha perdut el sentit de la seva simbologia i composició, fan pensar que ens trobem davant un conjunt força tardà, corresponen probablement a mitjan segle XIII.

 

Cal dir que si bé en conjunt la portada de Durro és força semblant a la de Cóll, aquesta és superior pel que fa a l'escultura, tant en factura com en repertori iconogràfic i ornamental.

 

Durant el període gòtic es va afegir un espai format dues capelles amb voltes d'ogiva, una decorada amb l'altar del Roser (segle XVII) i l'altra amb el del Sant Crist (segle XVIII). Al mur sud es conserva una arcada a sota de la qual hi ha l'altar de Sant Antoni (segle XVIII). A la capella amb coberta de cúpula, hi trobem l'altar de Sant Joan (segle XVIII). L'altar major (segle XIX) és presidit per les imatges de la Mare de Déu, sant Josep i sant Joaquim. Al cor es conserva un banc fet de diferents peces, dos dels plafons mostren treball de calats medievals que es relacionen amb el banc de Sant Climent de Taüll.

 

Al Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya es conserva la talla de fusta de la Mare de Déu (núm. d'inventari 15.895), que formava part del conjunt del Davallament. De la figura del Crist només es conserva una fotografia: la imatge es va cremar l'any 1936. Totes dues imatges es relacionen estilísticament i iconogràfica amb el conjunt del Davallament d'Erill la Vall i es poden datar al darrer quart del segle XII.

 

Obra de Joan Clarà de l'any 1909 d'estil noucentista dissenyada per ser instal·lada a la Plaça Catalunya. Va ser inaugurada el 1928 però dies després va ser retirada per que els grups moralistes de l'època estaven en contra de la nuesa. Va ser novament instal·lada el 1929, dies abans de la inauguració de l'Exposició de 1929. L'escultura original va ser substituida per una còpia l'any 1982 degut al deteriorament que havia patit. L'escultura original de Clarà va ser instal·lada al vestíbul de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona. La còpia és obra de Ricard Sala.

Echoes of nature - Ecos de la Naturaleza

 

Hace algunos años tenía por costumbre el pasar la noche del Viernes en una cabaña situada a unos mil metros de altura, subía con la suficiente antelación para poder ver el atardecer desde una despejada collada, aquello se acabó convirtiendo en un ritual que posteriormente compartía con un amigo, en mi casa lo vieron como un alivio pues no les hacía ninguna gracia el que estuviese allí solo toda la noche. El el subir de Abril a Setiembre con mi amigo Cesar me proporcionó unas experiencias increíbles y un medio para para liberar el estrés de la semana.

 

Llegada la oscuridad hacíamos fotos a las constelaciones según trepaban por el cielo, hubo noches en la que solo el rocío nos obligaba a retirarnos y otras en las que el alba o el cansancio nos obligaban a recogernos.

 

En esos minutos posteriores al atardecer solían darse unos espectáculos sonoros impresionantes, sentados sobre un tronco de madera y al refugio del amplio soportal de la cabaña, escuchábamos a los mirlos que cantaban manteniendo un claro y entretenido diálogo, nunca se interrumpían. Había una conjunción de sonidos que los acompañaban, las ranas y zumbidos de insectos rellenaban lo que para un oído no atento sería el silencio del campo, con la oscuridad las aves nocturnas comenzaban sus ululares desde un cercano bosque.

 

En un ejercicio de silencio escuchábamos a los cencerros del ganado pastando, los de los caballos sonaban durante toda la noche, pero las vacas sonaban menos pues se acuestan, intentábamos calcular cuantos sonidos diferentes había por la diferencia de tono de sus "cencerros", todo parecía formar parte de una sinfonía natural, pero yo ignoraba su alcance.

 

Pasaron los años y un buen día del 2001 leí en un periódico un reportaje sobre "El oído natural", un interesante artículo de Stefano Russomanno en él que venía a decir entre otros temas de gran interés, que nuestro sentido del oído se estaba atrofiando.

 

Fue entonces cuando llegué a los trabajos de Murray Schafer quien afirma en su libro "El Paisaje sonoro", ("Soundscape") que el mundo es una inmensa composición natural.

 

Entiendo que en éstos tiempos, todos parecemos hacer gala de una falsa ética ecológica, vivimos tan rápidamente que no prestamos atención a lo que nos rodea, no practicamos la escucha natural, todo un mundo de sorprendentes voces está ahí afuera, pájaros, insectos, ranas, el viento, las hojas de los árboles, la lluvia al caer, el ruido del agua en un arroyo, las castañas cayendo del árbol

  

.. no hay tal silencio, sino un increíble y bello concierto lleno de matices.

 

El compositor canadiense descubrió que hay un ritmo y una relación entre los sonidos de la Naturaleza, variable segun las diferentes estaciones del año, Hay una relación entre el todo.

Un avión que pase por un determinado medio Natural, es un ruido invasivo que provoca variaciones en la "Biofonía", las ranas, por ejemplo, practican una especie de coro en el que no sobresale ninguna sobre otra, solo una subida de tono significa alerta, el paso del avión provoca su silencio, silencio que es aprovechado para cazar por depredadores oportunistas.

 

Murray propuso que deberíamos a comenzar a escuchar ese aparente ruido en el que se esconde toda una sinfonía Natural una composición de la que todos somos compositores, en un acto que el denominó como "ecología acústica" y comenzó a grabar un inventario del paisaje sonoro, mapas acústicos del mundo, intentando establecer una relación entre el hombre y los sonidos que le rodean. El Universo es una enorme orquesta.. Mientras el sonido de las ciudades aumenta, disminuye el sonido de la Naturaleza o al menos somos nosotros los que perdemos la capacidad de escucharlo por atrofia.

 

Recuperar el oído natural es algo prioritario o irremediablemente perderemos la última oportunidad de percibir el encanto de esa partitura natural, un concierto que se ejecuta cada día..

 

"Al final -antes de que mueran los ecos de los bosques- puede que deseemos escuchar atentamente los paisajes naturales que todavía existen. Cuando lo hagamos descubriremos que no estamos aislados, sino que somos una parte esencial de un frágil espacio biológico. ¿Cuántos hemos escuchado el mensaje del Jardín del Edén a tiempo? El susurro de cada hoja y de cada criatura nos implora que protejamos el origen natural de nuestras vidas, el cual, en efecto, puede albergar secretos de amor para todos los seres vivientes, especialmente para nuestra propia humanidad. Esta música divina está desapareciendo a gran velocidad; se acerca el momento en que quizá tengamos que testificar mientras los espíritus de los animales regresan para una caza final."

 

Aquella noche de Agosto, preferí dormir al raso, los perfiles de las cercanas montañas me daban la referencia para el paso de las estrellas, las constelaciones se sucedían y era perceptible el amanecer de las estrellas por el giro de la tierra, los murciélagos se acercaban y se alejaban con un perceptible batir de alas y a mi alrededor toda una sinfonía de sonidos acordes me trajeron el sueño, en la lejanía unas lechuzas competían por hacerse oír, fue lo último que escuché hasta el amanecer, me recibió con un inmenso mar de niebla bajo mis pies digno de recordar, alrededor, la sinfonía continuaba con diferentes músicos y novedosos instrumentos, se les habían unido los cuervos y las calandrias y los alimoches, en silencio, permanecían en lo alto como cometas, esperando a que los primeros rayos de sol formasen las térmicas que les harían ascender con comodidad, lamentablemente no recuerdo mas detalles excepto una sensación de bienestar.

 

A lo largo de los años después de haber leído los trabajos de Murray, percibí que tomaba otra conciencia de lo oido, desde entonces he escuchado cosas insólitas que resultarían dificiles de creer, y me he sentido en ocasiones un ser privilegiado. Fue como poner gafas a alguien que no ve bien, todo es diferente cuando alguien te muestra hacía donde mirar u oir. La vida es un conjunto de pequeñas cosas, nuestros recuerdos estan formados de vivencias, imágenes, olores y por supuesto de sonidos.. son el conjunto de nuestras experiencias vividas.

 

Agradezco la oportunidad de haber escuchado los sonidos de los Bosques de Asturias, en el Reino del Busgosu de Díaz-Formentí, un mapa sonoro de un bosque Asturiano a lo largo de todas las estaciones.

José María Fernández Díaz-Formentí

 

Mi reconocimiento a los trabajos de Carlos de Hita y a tantos otros especialistas que hacen grabaciones del sonido natural de nuestra tierra y permiten con ello que lo disfrutemos desde la comodidad de nuestras casas, lo que provoca que mi perra acabe mirando en toda dirección buscando la procedencia del sonido, acaba oliendo los altavoces, y a veces se sienta a oirlos, sabio animal..

ante ésta última grabación mi perra ladró una vez, gruñó varias veces y mordió el mueble del altavoz..

 

La información que hay en Internet sobre éste tema es mas que abrumadora, pero de lo mas interesante..

 

Podría parecer que tengo una buena memoria, la tuve, ahora ya no.. utilizo apuntes que en su día tomé en agendas, recortes de periódicos y la inmensa biblioteca de internet, el dar una cierta coherencia a éste escrito me ha llevado mucho tiempo, al final escogí la foto de un Raitan, es un viejo conocido con el que voy a desayunar a menudo. No solemos hablar mucho, solo compartimos un crujiente bollo de cuernos..

 

Ayer me avisaron para que tomase una foto, una Raitana estaba incubando en una cristalería, en un armario entre cajas de cerraduras con cristales de corredera, mientras las máquinas cortaban ruidosamente aluminio, en silencio con solo sus ojos fuera del nido la raitana pasaba inadvertida, un pájaro social por el que profeso gran admiración..

 

Siento la longitud excesiva del texto, reconozco que puede resultar pesado a quién solo le interesa ver una imagen..

 

...o...

 

"A la fin -primero que muerran los ecos de los montes- pue que deseyemos escuchar atentamente los paisaxes naturales qu'inda esisten. Cuando lo faigamos vamos afayar que nun tamos aisllaos, sinón que somos una parte esencial d'un fráxil espaciu biolóxicu. ¿Cuántos escuchemos el mensaxe del Xardín del Edén a tiempu? El bisbiso de cada fueya y de cada criatura nos implora que protexamos l'aniciu natural de les nueses vides, que, n'efectu, puede allugar secretos d'amor pa tolos seres vivientes, especialmente para nuesa mesma humanidá. Esta música divina ta sumiendo a gran velocidá; avérase'l momentu en que quiciabes tengamos que testificar mientres los espíritos de los animales tornen pa una caza final."

Esti ye un exemplu de la rica arquitectura tradicional de La Cabreira nes vecines tierres llioneses.

Ye esta una tierra que tolos asturianos esmolecios pola nuesa cultura teniemos que conocer, una tierra harmana culturalmente onde la llingua sigue enforma viva y nun te sientes estranxeru.

Buscant ...........

 

Buscant fem camí, fem amics, construïm famílies, però buscant et deixes la pell, et deixes la vida. Buscant estas sol, no tens a ningú mes que a tu mateix amb la teva nuesa i la teva pell de xai.

El patiment t'arranca l'anima a tiras talment com un filferro, i ja no importa ni el camí que has fet, ni els amics ni la família, solament importa la duresa de la teva anima, la duresa del teu cor.

Solament et queda canviar de pell, com un camaleó. Deixà la teva anima ferida, abandonar-la per sempre i construir-te una nova pell amb noves il·lusions i nous camins.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Buscando ...........

 

Buscando hacemos camino, hacemos amigos, construimos familias, pero buscando te dejas la piel, te dejas la vida. Buscando estas solo, no tienes a nadie mas que a ti mismo con tu desnudez y tu piel de cordero.

El sufrimiento te arranca el alma a tiras como un alambre, y ya no importa ni el camino que has hecho, ni los amigos ni la familia, solamente importa la dureza de tu alma, la dureza de tu corazón.

Solamente te queda cambiar de piel, como un camaleón. Dejar tu alma herida, abandonarla para siempre y construirte una nueva piel con nuevas ilusiones y nuevos caminos.

on és la memòria marina

de escuma i elisi del nord.

 

I mut contemplant la tragèdia

recordes quan vares fugir

d'aquella Alemania boirosa

on res no tenia sentit.

 

Però Manfred què li han fet al mar?

que l'aigua s'ha tenyit de mort,

que arriben a la platja onades de vergonya

que ho embruitexen tot.

 

Pero Manfred que li han fet al mar?

que t'han atravessat el cor

amb llances de misèria

l'atlàntica bellesa que ho inundava tot.

 

Novembre obria els seus braços

i tu nu, com cada matí,

cercaves per entre les roques

el rastre del teu paradís.

 

Però qui ha estat capaç de robar-te

un somni de mar infinit,

la vida banyant-se a la platja

i el crit abissal dels dofins.

 

I diuen les bruixes marines

que et veuen badar pels esculls,

una ombra en tenebres, vestit de nuesa

i mar de tristesa al teus ulls.

 

Joan Isaac

 

Y la misma canción en castellano:

 

Manfred

Noviembre abría sus brazos

y tú desnudo como cada mañana,

buscabas entre las rocas,

el rastro de tu paraíso.

 

¿Dónde están los pájaros de alas blancas?

¿Dónde el salvaje rumor...?

¿Dónde la memoria marina...

de espuma y alisios del norte?

 

Y mudo, contemplando la tragedia,

recuerdas cuando decides huir

de aquella Alemania brumosa,

donde tú no tenías sentido...

 

Pero Manfred, ¿qué le han hecho al mar...?

Que el agua se ha teñido de muerte,

que llegan a la playa olas de vergüenza

que lo embrutecen todo...

 

Pero Manfred, ¿qué le han hecho al mar...?

Que te han arrancado del corazón,

Con lanzas de miseria, la atlántica belleza,

que lo inundaba todo.

 

Noviembre abría sus brazos

y tú desnudo como cada mañana,

buscabas entre las rocas,

el rastro de tu paraíso.

 

Pero quién ha sido capaz de robarte

un sueño de mar infinito,

la vida bañándose en la playa

y el grito abisal de los delfines.

 

Y dicen las brujas marinas

que te ven vagar por los arrecifes.

Una sombra entre tinieblas. Vestido de desnudez,

y mares de tristeza en tus ojos

 

Joan Isaac

Barcelona-Girona, març 2017

Obra de Joan Clarà de l'any 1909 d'estil noucentista dissenyada per ser instal·lada a la Plaça Catalunya. Va ser inaugurada el 1928 però dies després va ser retirada per que els grups moralistes de l'època estaven en contra de la nuesa. Va ser novament instal·lada el 1929, dies abans de la inauguració de l'Exposició de 1929. L'escultura original va ser substituida per una còpia l'any 1982 degut al deteriorament que havia patit. L'escultura original de Clarà va ser instal·lada al vestíbul de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona. La còpia és obra de Ricard Sala.

Casa Batlló

La joia de Gaudí

 

La Casa Batlló, construïda entre el 1904 i el 1906 al cor de la ciutat, és l’obra més emblemàtica del genial arquitecte català.

 

Gaudí va dotar la Casa Batlló d’una façana original, fantàstica i plena d’imaginació. Va substituir l’antiga façana per un nou conjunt de pedra i vidre. Va fer repicar els murs exteriors per donar-los la forma ondulada, que després va arrebossar amb morter de calç i cobrir amb trencadís de vidres de colors i discs de ceràmica.

 

A la part superior de la façana, la teulada té forma de llom d’animal i unes grans escates tornassolades. El coronament espinal està format per peces esfèriques de grans dimensions amb colors canviants d’un extrem a l’altre de tot el carener.

 

La gran tribuna del saló principal de la planta noble, que dóna al Passeig de Gràcia, es compon de finestres de fusta que s’accionen per pujar i baixar amb contrapesos, amb la particularitat que no hi ha muntants, de manera que es poden aixecar totes les vidrieres i tenir una obertura seguida, panoràmica, de tota l’amplada del saló.

 

A la planta baixa, la planta noble i la primera planta, la façana incorpora columnes esveltes de pedra de Montjuïc, que perfilen formes òssies decorades amb elements florals típicament modernistes.

 

Les baranes dels balcons tenen forma de màscara i són de ferro colat en una sola peça. Estan fixades mitjançant dos punts d’ancoratge, de manera que una part sobresurt en voladís.

 

La façana és en conjunt una representació alegre, al·legòrica, amb elements orgànics, carregada de simbolisme i de colors, tot un espectacle a la ciutat que inspira els sentiments més sublims als qui la contemplen. La casa és un diàleg amb la llum i el color.

 

A la planta noble, residència de la família Batlló, Gaudí va crear una nova distribució amb envans de formes ondulades i va decorar les habitacions.

 

Des del vestíbul a la planta baixa, una reixa de ferro robusta separa l’accés privat cap a l’habitatge de la família Batlló. Una gran escala de fusta s’obre camí des d’un rebedor de sostres de volta, amb lluernes amb formes de closca de tortuga. Com si fos un passamans, l’espinada d’un gran animal tallat en fusta noble s’eleva per buits impossibles, dotant tota l’estança d’un ambient submarí que transporta al món fantàstic de Jules Verne. Aquí la idea de fons marí és molt versemblant, amb els cromatismes de la superfície del mar, la sorra, les boques marines.

 

L’habitatge familiar disposa d’un pati privat que dóna a l’interior de l’illa, a la sortida del menjador, a la zona més íntima de la casa.

 

A la banda del Passeig de Gràcia, hi ha el saló principal de la casa, format per un saló central i dos saletes laterals que es poden ajuntar per crear una gran estança a l’estil dels lofts actuals. A la part central, incorpora la gran tribuna, ja esmentada, que sobresurt cap al carrer.

 

El celobert és una part molt important de la reforma. Gaudí eixampla el celobert i el revesteix tot amb rajoles en relleu, en diversos tons de blaus, que són més intensos a la part superior i més clars a la part inferior. Aconsegueix així una distribució uniforme de la llum. Les finestres són més petites a la part superior on arriba més llum natural, mentre que, cap avall, es van fent més grans. La part inferior de les finestres té unes escletxes de fusta que es poden obrir o tancar per permetre una bona ventilació. A la part central del celobert hi ha la preciosa cabina original de fusta de l’ascensor que continua en funcionament.

 

La gran claraboia central consta de grans elements de ferro i de vidres, i cobreix el gran celobert eixamplat per Gaudí. Aquesta gran claraboia és per on entra la llum en cascada per tot el celobert.

 

La Casa Batlló és una obra mestra de forma, de color i de llum. Amb aquesta obra, Gaudí s’anticipa a la tesi del racionalisme, que arribarà trenta anys després amb la seva idea moderna de la ventilació.

 

L’obra en conjunt és un prodigi de disseny ornamental gràcies a l’eclosió dels oficis. Gaudí va treballar amb els millors artesans de tots els gremis. La transformació del ferro forjat, on la corba no solament és retòrica i estètica, sinó que també és un reforç estructural; treballs sinuosos de fusta com portes tridimensionals amb relleus sorprenents; vidrieres emplomades de colors, que tamisen la llum natural; rajoles ceràmiques amb relleus, elements ornamentals de pedra arenosa de Montjuïc… tot això ret compte del mestratge dels artesans de l’època.

 

Les golfes amb espais diàfans i ventilats, que recorden l’arquitectura mediterrània, criden l’atenció per l’estructura d’arcs. Des de la sala principal de les golfes, es pot observar el meravellós món orgànic de Gaudí. S’hi pot apreciar l’estructura de costelles i estèrnum que creen els arcs parabòlics, d’una gran modernitat, que sosté el terrat. Les escales helicoïdals que comuniquen amb el terrat tenen una gran nuesa estructural, i són també d’una gran potència. La barana de ferro de línies senzilles ja és per ella mateixa una escultura del segle XX.

 

Al terrat, el llom del drac, amb un important equilibri estètic de cara a la façana, cedeix el protagonisme davant els quatre grups de xemeneies sinuoses. Després de l’estètica, hi ha sempre la funcionalitat. El vent no podrà mai obstruir la sortida de fum gràcies a uns barrets a la part superior de les xemeneies, recobertes del mateix trencadís vidriat que la façana. Gaudí recobreix les superfícies corbes amb rajoles trossejades, com feien els bizantins.

 

En recórrer la casa, els detalls no deixen de sorprendre arreu. Les portes de cada pis s’identifiquen mitjançant lletres de trets modernistes, dissenyades per Gaudí especialment per a la Casa Batlló. Els vidres industrials als replans de l’escala de veïns són translúcids, però no transparents; permeten el pas de la llum amb discreció alhora que, segons com es miri, distorsionen els blaus del celobert en boniques ones d’aigua. Formes ergonòmiques en poms i passamans, lluernes i claraboies. És l’obra d’art total, l’artista intervé en tot: el disseny, el color, la forma, l’espai, la llum.

 

L’obra consta de planta baixa, planta principal amb pati, quatre plantes senceres, golfes i terrat, accés privat a la planta noble o principal, una escala de veïns que discorre per un celobert eixamplat i enrajolat artísticament com si es tractés d’un parament de façana exterior. Des del carrer s’accedeix a les cotxeres, arran de carrer, que s’endinsen ocupant la part subterrània del pati de la planta noble i des de les quals s’accedeix a les carboneres, a la part inferior.

 

En total, la casa té més de 5.000 m2 amb la façana al Passeig de Gràcia i la façana posterior al pati d’illa.

Bellesa nua.

Belleza desnuda.

Naked beauty.

 

DINS TEU

 

Si saps que tot és provisori, fes-te

dins teu, amb urc, un reducte, i defensa't

del fluctuar girant-hi els ulls sovint.

 

No et vulguis tanmateix massa allunyat

de les coses, no fos que el teu reducte

se't convertís a poc a poc en un

ermot, on tot és dur i eixarreït.

 

Estima la bellesa que t'envolta

i que se't dóna clara i generosa,

i en tu i per tu estima també els altres,

car d'aquests dos amors te'n pervindrà

l'harmonia i, tal volta, la grandesa.

 

Miquel Martí i Pol

Bus companies such as Victory Liner., Northern Luzon Bus Corporation (NELBUSCO), AJA Transport, Florida, Royal Eagle and Auto Bus have services bound to other parts of the province, Tarlac, Pampanga, Ilocos, Cagayan, Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, and Manila. Transportation within the town is mainly by tricycles, which are basically motorcycles with cabs attached to them. There are also many vans which are used as a means of transportation from Roxas to other parts of the province. Many buses also pass through Roxas because they find it as a highly-economized town where they can get a lot of passengers. Some of these buses are Victory Liner, Ballesteros Bus Line Corporation(BBLC), Dagupan Bus Corporation Incorporated, DALIN, Lizardo Trans(GL), GMW Transportation, Maribel(a sister company of BBLC), Rosalinda, DOLBO Transportation and Agustin Bus.

[edit] Business

It also provides the neighboring towns of Isabela all necessary needs of a human to live. Roxas has a very wide and huge market, so businessmen have their chance to build and earn a lot of money immediately.

  

Due to a continuing widespread influence of GMA Network, Roxas has been chosen as the future site for GMA Network Cagayan Valley once it will be formally declared as a city.

[edit] Healthcare

 

It is considered as the center of health services in Mallig Region. It has numerous primary, secondary, and tertiary hospitals. Major hospitals include Manuel A. Roxas District Hospital (MARDH), Soller Medical Clinic, Dumlao Hospital, Yumena Medical Center and Dayos Hospital. It also houses some specialization clinics, such as Sambilay Maternity Surgical and Medical Clinic, Purugganan Children's Clinic and Capuccino EENT Clinic. Dental clinics and skin clinics are also available. Moreover, health centers are also available in barangays outside the town proper.

Infrastructure Development

Over the past two years, when Dr. Harry G. Soller took the helms of government as its Municipal Mayor, Roxas has seen an unprecedented pace in its infrastructure development. The local government, in cooperation with Governor Grace Padaca and Congressman Edwin Uy, has concreted 20 kilometers of roads, more or less, in the town proper as well as in the barangays. As of march 2010, at least 10 kilometers of roads are programmed to be concreted. Moreover, Roxas' public places, and parks have been greatly improved. New Parks include the Barangay Park, which features 26 nipa huts put up by each of the barangays of Roxas; the Roxas Municipal Park and Freedom Stage, which features a clean comfort room, a Pasalubong Center, a Center Gazeebo with a beautifully designed fountain, and other park amenities; the Forest Park in front of the municipal hall; the Binibining Roxas Park; the Rizal Park; and the newly improved Children's Park.

During the elections, political upheavals concerned the local residents since Dr. Soller won by a margin of just 200 votes. The current representative is Atty. Edwin C. Uy, who is in his third term. He won against Benedict Calderon, the son of Benito Calderon, and was also the incumbent mayor of Roxas that time. Congressman Edwin Uy is rumored to run for governor in 2010. Edwin Uy is now running as Vice Governor in tandem with Grace Padaca, the incumbent provincial governor.

Obra de Joan Clarà de l'any 1909 d'estil noucentista dissenyada per ser instal·lada a la Plaça Catalunya. Va ser inaugurada el 1928 però dies després va ser retirada per que els grups moralistes de l'època estaven en contra de la nuesa. Va ser novament instal·lada el 1929, dies abans de la inauguració de l'Exposició de 1929. L'escultura original va ser substituida per una còpia l'any 1982 degut al deteriorament que havia patit. L'escultura original de Clarà va ser instal·lada al vestíbul de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona. La còpia és obra de Ricard Sala.

Fai! realizó delles intervenciones artístiques y reivindicatives el día de la muyer

La organización d'esquierda soberanista salió al mesmu tiempu a les cais d'Uviéu y Xixón pa engalanar seis estatues con mensaxes qu'afondaben na necesidá de superar les situaciones de desigualdá machista na nuesa sociedá. Asina, aprovechando la temática espeyada nes estatues, representábense comportamientos machistes a cargu de militantes de Fai! demientres s'espardíen cientos de panfletos desplicativos sobre la llucha antipatriarcal pola igualdá de derechos sociales pa muyeres y homes. Vidiu y semeyes.

 

En Xixón escoyéronse les obres de "la madre del Emigrante" -con un gran símbolu feminista nel brazu-, "l'emperador Augusto" -esplumadera en mano- y "el elogio del horizonte", onde s'instalaron cartelos nos que se podía lleer, en cada casu, "nun tamos lloques, namás somos feministes", "vini, vi y ficiéronme la cena" o "esti retrete vas llimpialu tu, King Kong".

 

D'otra banda, n'Uviéu les intervenciones reivindicatives fueron nes estatues de "el torero", "el culu" y "la maternidá de Botero", onde se ficieron representaciones con militantes antroxaos de la organización que calteníen comportamientos machistes (la supuesta superioridá masculina del "macho ibérico", la "cosificación" y desixencies estétiques de la muyer, encarnaes nún ciruxanu plásticu o la non collaboración doméstica espeyada nel trabayu de les muyeres al tiempu que l'home ve la tele). Les estatues taben engalanaes nesta ocasión con con cartelos nos que se lleía "el machu español querémoslu n'estincíon", "si nun te presta'l mio culu mírame a la cara" o "si nun criare sola a les nueses fíes y fíos yo tamién podría vivir".

 

De la mesma manera, yeren espardíos cientos de panfletos con esti testu, col que Fai! quixo poner puntu y siguíu a una selmana qu'entamaba cola ridiculización de la concentración antialbortista de la ultraderecha católica, el mesmu día enantes de la conmemoración del 8 de marzu, nel que se facía un repasu poles principales discriminaciones qu'inda carecen les muyeres nel planeta.

 

N'Asturies: escontra'l machismu y pola emancipación social y nacional

 

¡REVOLUCIÓN DE XÉNERU!

   

8 de marzu: día de la muyer

 

El machismu: ¡esti muertu ta mui vivu!

   

Una vuelta más topámonos énte un 8 de marzu marcáu, d’una banda, pola discriminación tresversal de la sociedá d’anguaño pa coles muyeres y, d’otra, polos discursos institucionales y autocomplacientes de los gobiernos de turnu.

   

N’Asturies, la situación de la muyer sigue siendo humildante en toles estayes de la sociedá, situaciones de desamparu que davezu non sólo nun van a meyor sinón tolo contrario.

   

En primer llugar, la dignidá de les muyeres sigue siendo violada nel día a día de les televisiones y otros medios de comunicación que na so mayor parte namás nos tienen por maniquíes y oxetos domésticos y sexuales. Asina, sigue ensin tenese en cuenta y poné-y remediu al réxime d’esclavitú no que cinca al llabor caseru y, nel so casu, a la educación de les fíes/os, lo que fai de les muyeres trabayadores ensin retribución nin xubilación (nin siquiera a los 67) nin vacaciones pa toa una vida.

   

Nel casu de les muyeres qu’acceden al mercáu llaboral la situación nun ye muncho meyor. Nesti contestu neolliberal agresivu pa coles/os trabayadores, les muyeres siempre tienen les de perder. El capital, sistema verdaderu esclavista de persones, cébase coles partes más débiles anguaño de la sociedá y especialmente nel casu de les muyeres. Asina, una muyer cobra menos por desendolcar el mesmu trabayu qu’un home y siempre se-y pon pilancos al so llabor, amás d’otres actitúes como cuestionar les nueses capacidaes, teniéndonos más como “coses guapes y estátiques” que como profesionales cualificaes. Equí nun podemos dexar de llau a les nueses compañeres inmigrantes, que son la pata de bancu más feble –inda más– de la nuesa sociedá, esplotaes nes mafies de la prostitución esclavista, esplotaes llaboralmente y nuna situación perprecaria.

   

Nel 2010 les muyeres siguimos ensin ser verdaderamente dueñes del nuesu cuerpu. Non sólo no qu’a la vergoñosa violencia machista, que considera a les muyeres como dalgo más de la so propiedá, se refier. Los sectores reaccionarios de la ilesia siguen aneciando en meter el cazu na llibertá de les persones obligándonos a tragar cola so hipócrita y rancia moral cristiana. Inda pretenden que manden sobre nosotres los escritos d’hai 2000 años y el so criteriu acientíficu y moralista que vergoñosamente escuenden cuando-yos convién. Nesti sen, Fai! realizó una protesa na concentración antiabortista de la ultraderecha católica cellebrada n’Uviéu esti 7 de marzu, paradóxicamente ún día enantes del 8 de marzu, onde se fai homenaxe a la llucha de les muyeres por una vida digna.

   

Tampoco escaecemos la situación de millones de muyeres en tol planeta condergaes a la violencia, a les cadenes, a tar amarraes y tapaes como bisarmes, llapidaes, con un pasáu, un presente y un futuru inda mui prietu si nun se-y pon igua urxente. Nun hai derechos sociales pa elles, nin siquiera una migayina de llibertá pa protestar pola situación vergoñosa énte la que los gobiernos occidentales abocanen y miren pa otru llau, al tiempu que siguen permitiendo la inxusticia.

   

Yá ye hora de da-y la vuelta a la situación. Agora NOSOTRES.

(De Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre)

 

Manfred Gnädinger (*Radofzell, 27 de enero de 1936 - † Camelle, 28 de diciembre de 2002) (conocido como Man o El Aléman) fue un escultor alemán que vivió como un anacoreta en el pueblo de Camelle, en la Costa da Morte (Galicia). Trató de llevar una vida lo más simple y natural posible, elaborando esculturas al aire libre cerca de la playa donde vivía y cuidando su pequeño jardín.

 

Nació y paso su infancia en Alemania, procedente de una familia de siete hermanos y estudió arte en Italia. Impartió clases de arte en Suiza a personas con problemas de integración social. Su interés por la preservación del medio ambiente y la curiosidad por conocer la costa gallega lo condujeron a la Costa da Morte. En mayo de 1962 llegó a un Camelle inmerso en las fiestas patronales del Espíritu Santo. Desde aquel día ese alemán solitario, educado y de buen aspecto y con cierto aire de turista acomodado, se instaló para siempre en el pueblo.

 

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

 

Manfred Gnädinger (1936 - 28 December 2002) a.k.a. Man or O Alemán was a German hermit and sculptor who lived in the village of Camelle, on the Costa da Morte, in Galicia (Spain). He lived a very simple and natural life, building sculptures on the beach where he lived and tending to his small garden. In November 2002, when the oil spill of the Prestige destroyed his sculptures and the ecosystem of the area he lived in, it is thought that Man let himself die of melancholy and sadness, thus becoming a symbol of the destruction unleashed by the oil spill.

 

Man arrived in the small village of Camelle in 1962, Boehringen in the south of Germany. His whereabouts before this period are unknown, although he was described as having been well-dressed and educated when he arrived. It is said that he went mad after falling in love with the teacher of the village and being refused. A few years later, after becoming sensitized to ecological issues, he built himself a small hut on the beach of the village, next to the Atlantic Ocean, and spent the next forty years in this place, where he quickly became a curiosity of the village. Inhabitants referred to him as O Alemán (the German), then just Man, a name he eagerly accepted for its symbolism. Tall, with a long beard, and dressed only with a loincloth in any weather, he would swim out in the Ocean, even after he was fifty years old. He had no electricity or running water in his hut, and was a strict vegetarian, eating only from the small organic garden he had created.

 

Man executed colorful sculptures out of stones, driftwood, animal remains and other elements washed up by the sea, which sometimes reminded people of Gaudí's work. Tourists would come to visit the open-air museum he had created where the sculptures integrated into the natural landscape. Man's only source of revenue was the 1€ he would ask as a fee for visiting the Museum of the German. Man would also ask visitors to do drawings for him in small notebooks. Dozens of such notebooks were found after his death with hundreds of drawings.

 

On 17 November 2002, the oil tanker Prestige split in half and sank in the Atlantic Ocean, after having had a huge leak in its tanks. A few days later, Man woke up to find his life ruined by an oil spill. Tons of oil had washed up on the beach where he lived. Most of his sculptures were irremediably destroyed and the oil even reached his house. Man was absolutely devastated, his whole life work destroyed before his eyes, and the natural environment where he lived heavily polluted for years to come. A month later, he was found dead in his hut. He had circulatory and respiratory problems, but most local people believe that he died of melancholy and sadness at the sight of the complete and utter destruction of his life by the oil spill. The Camelle authorities organized and paid for his funeral, and hundreds of locals attended.

Thousands of birds and fish died in the aftermath of the oil spill, but Man was the only human victim. His life and his death are remembered as a symbol of the destruction unleashed by the Prestige. His museum, which he donated to the city before his death, can still be visited in Camelle.

Manfred (A song by Joan Isaac)

 

Novembre obria els seus braços

i tu nu, com cada matí,

cercaves per entre les roques

el rastre del teu paradís.

 

On són els ocells d'ales blanques,

on és la salvatge remor,

on és la memòria marina

de escuma i elisi del nord.

 

I mut contemplant la tragèdia

recordes quan vares fugir

d'aquella Alemania boirosa

on res no tenia sentit.

 

Però Manfred què li han fet al mar?

que l'aigua s'ha tenyit de mort,

que arriben a la platja onades de vergonya

que ho embruitexen tot.

 

Pero Manfred que li han fet al mar?

que t'han atravessat el cor

amb llances de misèria

l'atlàntica bellesa que ho inundava tot.

 

Novembre obria els seus braços

i tu nu, com cada matí,

cercaves per entre les roques

el rastre del teu paradís.

 

Però qui ha estat capaç de robar-te

un somni de mar infinit,

la vida banyant-se a la platja

i el crit abissal dels dofins.

 

I diuen les bruixes marines

que et veuen badar pels esculls,

una ombra en tenebres, vestit de nuesa

i mar de tristesa al teus ulls.

 

(Traducción al castellano)

 

Noviembre abría sus brazos

y tú desnudo como cada mañana,

buscabas entre las rocas,

el rastro de tu paraíso.

 

¿Dónde están los pájaros de alas blancas?

¿Dónde el salvaje rumor...?

¿Dónde la memoria marina...

de espuma y alisios del norte?

 

Y mudo, contemplando la tragedia,

recuerdas cuando decides huir

de aquella Alemania brumosa,

donde tú no tenías sentido...

 

Pero Manfred, ¿qué le han hecho al mar...?

Que el agua se ha teñido de muerte,

que llegan a la playa olas de vergüenza

que lo embrutecen todo...

 

Pero Manfred, ¿qué le han hecho al mar...?

Que te han arrancado del corazón,

Con lanzas de miseria, la atlántica belleza,

que lo inundaba todo.

 

Noviembre abría sus brazos

y tú desnudo como cada mañana,

buscabas entre las rocas,

el rastro de tu paraíso.

 

Pero quién ha sido capaz de robarte

un sueño de mar infinito,

la vida bañándose en la playa

y el grito abisal de los delfines.

 

Y dicen las brujas marinas

que te ven vagar por los arrecifes.

Una sombra entre tinieblas. Vestido de desnudez,

y mares de tristeza en tus ojos

Asina, aprovechando la temática espeyada nes estatues, representábense comportamientos machistes a cargu de militantes de Fai! demientres s'espardíen cientos de panfletos desplicativos sobre la llucha antipatriarcal pola igualdá de derechos sociales pa muyeres y homes. Vidiu y semeyes.

 

En Xixón escoyéronse les obres de "la madre del Emigrante" -con un gran símbolu feminista nel brazu-, "l'emperador Augusto" -esplumadera en mano- y "el elogio del horizonte", onde s'instalaron cartelos nos que se podía lleer, en cada casu, "nun tamos lloques, namás somos feministes", "vini, vi y ficiéronme la cena" o "esti retrete vas llimpialu tu, King Kong".

 

D'otra banda, n'Uviéu les intervenciones reivindicatives fueron nes estatues de "el torero", "el culu" y "la maternidá de Botero", onde se ficieron representaciones con militantes antroxaos de la organización que calteníen comportamientos machistes (la supuesta superioridá masculina del "macho ibérico", la "cosificación" y desixencies estétiques de la muyer, encarnaes nún ciruxanu plásticu o la non collaboración doméstica espeyada nel trabayu de les muyeres al tiempu que l'home ve la tele). Les estatues taben engalanaes nesta ocasión con con cartelos nos que se lleía "el machu español querémoslu n'estincíon", "si nun te presta'l mio culu mírame a la cara" o "si nun criare sola a les nueses fíes y fíos yo tamién podría vivir".

 

De la mesma manera, yeren espardíos cientos de panfletos con esti testu, col que Fai! quixo poner puntu y siguíu a una selmana qu'entamaba cola ridiculización de la concentración antialbortista de la ultraderecha católica, el mesmu día enantes de la conmemoración del 8 de marzu, nel que se facía un repasu poles principales discriminaciones qu'inda carecen les muyeres nel planeta.

 

N'Asturies: escontra'l machismu y pola emancipación social y nacional

 

¡REVOLUCIÓN DE XÉNERU!

   

8 de marzu: día de la muyer

 

El machismu: ¡esti muertu ta mui vivu!

   

Una vuelta más topámonos énte un 8 de marzu marcáu, d’una banda, pola discriminación tresversal de la sociedá d’anguaño pa coles muyeres y, d’otra, polos discursos institucionales y autocomplacientes de los gobiernos de turnu.

   

N’Asturies, la situación de la muyer sigue siendo humildante en toles estayes de la sociedá, situaciones de desamparu que davezu non sólo nun van a meyor sinón tolo contrario.

   

En primer llugar, la dignidá de les muyeres sigue siendo violada nel día a día de les televisiones y otros medios de comunicación que na so mayor parte namás nos tienen por maniquíes y oxetos domésticos y sexuales. Asina, sigue ensin tenese en cuenta y poné-y remediu al réxime d’esclavitú no que cinca al llabor caseru y, nel so casu, a la educación de les fíes/os, lo que fai de les muyeres trabayadores ensin retribución nin xubilación (nin siquiera a los 67) nin vacaciones pa toa una vida.

   

Nel casu de les muyeres qu’acceden al mercáu llaboral la situación nun ye muncho meyor. Nesti contestu neolliberal agresivu pa coles/os trabayadores, les muyeres siempre tienen les de perder. El capital, sistema verdaderu esclavista de persones, cébase coles partes más débiles anguaño de la sociedá y especialmente nel casu de les muyeres. Asina, una muyer cobra menos por desendolcar el mesmu trabayu qu’un home y siempre se-y pon pilancos al so llabor, amás d’otres actitúes como cuestionar les nueses capacidaes, teniéndonos más como “coses guapes y estátiques” que como profesionales cualificaes. Equí nun podemos dexar de llau a les nueses compañeres inmigrantes, que son la pata de bancu más feble –inda más– de la nuesa sociedá, esplotaes nes mafies de la prostitución esclavista, esplotaes llaboralmente y nuna situación perprecaria.

   

Nel 2010 les muyeres siguimos ensin ser verdaderamente dueñes del nuesu cuerpu. Non sólo no qu’a la vergoñosa violencia machista, que considera a les muyeres como dalgo más de la so propiedá, se refier. Los sectores reaccionarios de la ilesia siguen aneciando en meter el cazu na llibertá de les persones obligándonos a tragar cola so hipócrita y rancia moral cristiana. Inda pretenden que manden sobre nosotres los escritos d’hai 2000 años y el so criteriu acientíficu y moralista que vergoñosamente escuenden cuando-yos convién. Nesti sen, Fai! realizó una protesa na concentración antiabortista de la ultraderecha católica cellebrada n’Uviéu esti 7 de marzu, paradóxicamente ún día enantes del 8 de marzu, onde se fai homenaxe a la llucha de les muyeres por una vida digna.

   

Tampoco escaecemos la situación de millones de muyeres en tol planeta condergaes a la violencia, a les cadenes, a tar amarraes y tapaes como bisarmes, llapidaes, con un pasáu, un presente y un futuru inda mui prietu si nun se-y pon igua urxente. Nun hai derechos sociales pa elles, nin siquiera una migayina de llibertá pa protestar pola situación vergoñosa énte la que los gobiernos occidentales abocanen y miren pa otru llau, al tiempu que siguen permitiendo la inxusticia.

   

Yá ye hora de da-y la vuelta a la situación. Agora NOSOTRES.
