Imago lacus

The picture above was taken by a dear friend, the American poet Debra Kang Dean (please do not use it without permission). I met Debra three years before, when I went to Walden to work with his late husband Brad, a great Thoreau scholar.

Alquimia


Duela astebete San Martineko azokara joan ginen lore sorta baten bila, eta Mimikun literatur fanzine bat oparitu ziguten. Nik ez nituen ezagutzen Alquimiakoak, ezta hiru orritan hain gauza politak egin zitezkeenik ere. Besteak beste, biziki atsegin ditut May Gorostiagaren Boomerang ipuina eta Naroa Garcíaren marrazki hau, gaur kopla bihurtu zaidana:

Bukatu dira   beste urte batez
gabonak ta merkealdiak
arropa zaharrak   gorde itzazu
badatoz inauteriak!

(Hace una semana fuimos a por flores al mercado de San Martín y en Mimiku nos regalaron un fanzine literario. Yo no conocía a estos de Alquimia, ni que se pudieran hacer cosas tan bonitas con tres A4. No sé si llegaré a ver a Donostia de capital cultural, pero con esto yo me conformo.)
