Imago lacus

Closing time

Blog honetako sarrerarik bisitatuena duela urtebete argitaratua zen. Renkuaz jardun nuen, baina modu heterodoxo batean, blackout poem teknika erabiliz. Aurten ere bukatu nahi nuen renkuarekin. Ez benetako renku batekin, aurrez aurre lagunartean egiten dena (prest nago Donostialdean saio bat antolatzeko:-), suzedaneo birtuala eta mugatuarekin baizik.

Oraindik ari gara azken ukituak ematen, irailean argitaratuko dugulakoan.

(Esta es la última entrada del curso 2011-2012. Con un poco de suerte, en septiembre nos encontramos en la laguna. Gracias por volver.)
