Le Regard Du Chat

Me gusta estar al lado del camino, fumando el humo mientras todo pasa.

Friendship train - 1947
After World War II came to a close, the country of France began the task of rebuilding a nation ravaged by war.  Years of German occupation had left the French people in great need of life’s everyday necessities.  In his daily column, the Merry-go-round, noted Washington newspaperman Drew Pearson suggested that America come to the aid of its European friend.  Inspired by Pearson’s idea of a Friendship Train, newspapers all across the country joined in the effort and over forty million dollars worth of supplies were collected to send to France.  Seven hundred boxcars of food, fuel, medicine, and clothing left on a ship from New York City and arrived in France on December 18, 1947.

Me quedo pensando con los ojos fijos y la sonrisa asomada entre mis labios, pienso en el pasado y en como el futuro está tan cercano a nuestro presente.
Mis ojos fascinados ante un libro de literatura universal, los suyos hojean uno de anatomía, él busca libros de diseño… Yo escribo una historia, ustedes la hacen.
