This expression that means so many things, and at the same time sounds so nice when mexican peoples say it.
Here again in Hermosillo´s city, this arid land that long ago was inhabit for the pimos bajos, tepacas and seris tribes, some we can still find today, not far from Kino´s Bay, always looking proudlly towards Shark´s Island, the Seris are the last nomad people that last here in Mexico, the same ones that one day where the antithesis of the spanish colonizing, but fortunatelly today this is not like this.
Today,s Hermosillo´s people live in a very diferent way and ritme, burritos, atoles, gorditas de tortilla, and beer seams to be the petrol that fills it up those tall and friendlly mexicans.
But here also have those things that before hapend, must be dreamed, and from this for me came several donations in this city, i´ve collected almost 4 tones of food for those places that i really love that will never exist, i´ve been this little one´s bit of sand that i hope one day will be a little mountain, i will becouse i do believe it and also becouse i really dont want to waste those moments with sadly feelings.
How many time we would like to change things?, change yes, dreaming too, but at wich price?, where reside the courage to do such idea?.
How to forget all that we dont believe but somehow protect us? , and at the same time find the way tho get out from there and shout very loud, I just want to be me…
Me i will , becouse my life it´s so wonderful, every day it´s a new day, far from the rutine or created values at intermittent pain of frustrations or fears.
Where we will look for friendship, peace or love?for those crossing that are the path of our lifes?those magic places where lies the truth? this is just life my passion, eventhough to often i have to leave behind all those that i love.
You there and me here, looking those days long ago one cold night of february, when you have arrived to my life with the brightness on your look, and today´s in the abyss of waiting,i´ll wait all my life gazing it´s beauty, eventhough sometimes i´d like tu shut my eyes and dreaming that´s not hapenning.
The other day day i saw again the sad eyes of those girls and boys offering me so much love, i felt to helplessness of not doing much better, and i hear behind me the selfish smile of those that can but dont want to help`.
O my solitude i have decided to sit in one bar and having a beer listening music, this armony betwen the sky and the earth, but this time it wasnt exactlly like this, becouse this music came laudlly from the taca-taca,(traditional from here) and the mariachis, all mixed with the shouts of some people that already had to much tequila, so i had to forget and try to be part of them,during some melancholic song i´ve decide to not go back to those ways that are already marked, becouse they only bring you to those places where somebody else has been before.
On those arid lands of Sonora state, looking for values, but ironicaly meanwhile all drawns with tequila and excelent mexican food.
And in another arid world , located in the same place, reside those that so often we forget and also have the right of dreaming but…
Again i´ll leave Hermosillo´s, with the bright look of all those kids that somehow i could help, and teh feeling that i will never see them again, but i do have to keep living my life, in this way that even if i am loosing i have to go forward, towards the magic of this bridge that allows me to go into my own invisible world, this long trip that we make in our inside, those places that one day where the refuge of hapiness, sadness and also unfinished dreams.
One cold night of february, among tamales, atoles and gallina pinta, bathed with beer the lovelly mexican people keeps giving me their friendship, and again all those kids gaved me their love…
On my memories i saw you one cold night of february, long ago, too long indeed, then the first star sparkle…
THERE´S ALWAYS A BIT OF MADNESS ON LOVE, BUT ALSO A BIT OF REASON ON MADENESS.
HEALTH AND GOOD JOURNEY, NANDO.
