Oh no. Not this again. It's the clothing dream. I've been having it for fifty years. Aisle after aisle, closetful, metal rack after metal rack of clothing, stretching into the distance under the glare of the flourescent tubing- as goudy and ornate and confusing, and finally as gloom and oppressive as the dreams of a long time opium smoker. Why am I compelled to riffle through these outfits, tangling up the hangers, tripping on the ribbons, snagging myself on a hook or buttom while the feathers and sequins and fake pearls drop to the floor like ants from a burning tree? What is the occasion? Who do I need to impress?
There's a smell of stale underarms. Everything's been worn before. Nothing fits. Too small, too big, too magenta. These flounces, hoops, ruffles, wired collars, cut-velvet-capes, none of these disguises is mine. How old am I in this dream? Do I have tits? Whose life am I living? Whose life am I failing to live?
Last Tuesday, I paid a visit to my favourite book store. Luckily, I found the books I had in mind and even better, I found another ones.. so I returned to my place loaded with books. I don't know why, I love this book store, they usually have the type of books I like, also, here there are cultural activities like poetry reading and music concerts. There is, as well, a little restaurant where you can eat or have a coffee as you read your new adquisitions. AND as I am a frequent client I have 10% discount in my purchases. Lovely place indeed!
I can't wait to start reading them :)
There must be something wrong with me. I can't keep myself from showing you my beautiful dog. Mona is so cute!!
One more time, for the ones that live in Mexico, la Cineteca Nacional presents La muestra internacional de cine, where people can go and watch some of the best movies made during the year. This year's selection includes, Francis Ford Coppola and his daughter Sofia. Mr. Woody Allen, Buñuel, the Korean Hong Sang-soo.. well, 22 movies, 22 directors from all over the world. Gladly, the exhibition will last more than usual as each film will be projected during 5 days. After the festival finishes at la Cineteca, it will be presented in another cities of the country.
