"Pass with Care, the signal cautions, yet you would like no reminding as you move a butte brooding over stegosaurus hills. You comprehend that the following flip offers the unexpected--a Ponderosa laid open by way of lightning, a herd of livestock modern as a Brahman imaginative and prescient, a lake tremulous with trout. this can be a land the place the sky intoxicates the eye, and historical past gossips within the willows lining the nice river. it is the misplaced roads that bring about wasteland gardens; you omit your flip and prove discovering your way." In unforeseen flip self-described "migrant author" Jim Sagel takes us on a trip instantaneously austere and wonderful, distant and ordinary. this can be a love letter to New Mexico in spare and understated prose poems. Sagel visits locations bathed in gentle and steeped in cultural background, the place blind curves and unforeseen turns result in self-discovery. In a land older than the rustic, he captures the infrequent intersections of sunshine, heritage, and the center.

Download e-book for kindle: Il declino dell'impero americano by Sergio Romano

Nel 2003, con Il rischio americano, Sergio Romano affermava, nella nuova fase politica internazionale iniziata dopo gli attentati dell’11 settembre, che gli Stati Uniti, unica superpotenza mondiale, avevano agito con arroganza anche perché l’Europa period stata assente o insignificante. Poco più di dieci anni dopo, in un contesto di continua fibrillazione acuita dalla perdurante crisi economica apertasi nel 2007/2008, l. a. domanda di fondo è sempre los angeles stessa: cosa vuol fare l’Europa da grande?

All rivers are born of the sea,'' wrote the Mexican poet who, like me, lost both of his fathers. In answer to your question, I can never know what these words will say, for even as I set them in ink they go flooding back to the blackness from which we were born (or to which we are bound, which, in the end, is the opposite way of saying the same thing).  "Not anymore, she replied, not comprehending why I had to hide my face in my folded hands to keep from drowning out the Glory Be with laughter.

There's nothing there for me to see," you said without irony, hungry to get on the lake where you once netted spawning shad by the dozens with your fatherpoles east aside in the canoe, the two of you scooping silver currency from the waters.  How could you trade the family you have never seen for the sight of no wife, no daughters? Smiling in the sunrise, you cast your line that floats high over the dark jungle on this dazzling one in a hundred morning.  Good thing he hasn't been following me the last few years.

Page 8 Ancestral Stew Certain Amazonian hunters commemorate their dead by cremating them and ritualistically consuming their pulverized bones in a banana stew. The thought of an ancestor decaying beneath the earth is abhorrent to these Indians who believe the soul cannot be at peace until the body has found a final resting place in the cells of those it once engendered.  Bare- boned as my retelling of your tales may be, I offer them to all who would eat. '' Not far from the spot where the tower that cradled the "gadget" evaporated, a Lake Arthur woman turned a tortilla over on her blackened comal one Cold War morning and discovered the face of Christ burned into the surface of the unleavened bread.
