MEMORIAS / El primer encuentro con Neruda

Miami, January 29, 2018.  It all started overlooking beautiful Biscayne Bay four years ago at the newly inaugurated PAMM. Perhaps that was the highest point in a roller-coaster ride. Beckham and partners confronted one failure after another. In effect, just a few months ago, Marcelo Claure, Sprint’s CEO and partner, met Beckham in New York to end the dream.  

Recuerdo a una chica llamada María Eugenia que se dejaba mirar en la ventana. Ella vivía en la planta alta de la casa vecina y desde el patio yo la consumía devoto. Un día le pagué a mi hermana a que le entregara una nota con dos frases monumentales: Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,  y Eres como la noche, callada y constelada...

Hojeando el catálogo me golpeó el recuerdo de algo que dijo Milán Kundera, las novelas son una larga definición de una o dos palabras. Infectado de semejante lógica no pude sino ver la feria como un diccionario, y me puse a componer uno en base al trabajo se algunos participantes.

Amistad. Hay una teoría infalible sobre la amistad: Siempre hay que saber qué se puede esperar de cada amigo. Carmen Posadas.

Besar. Entonces me besaba y yo creía bailar al filo del desmayo. María Dueñas.

Aurea Veras es fotógrafa amateur. Es decir, ama perpetuar instantes, ya sea un claroscuro en la luna, la orquídea inesperada o ese vuelo protector de una gaviota. No precisa más que la cámara del teléfono para rescatar instantes que a la vez la retratan porque el arte es así, un baile de pareja. Salonespanol

ART WEEK / Downtown Miami

Raul Guerrero

El castellano atravesó el Mar Océano junto a la cruz y la espada. Pronto se enriqueció con las palabras tomate, chocolate, aguacate, cacahuate y maíz. Como los americanos carecían de inmunidades para las enfermedades del Viejo Mundo, comunidades enteras quedaron extintas. Fue necesario importar mano de obra. La bonanza de la horrenda trata de esclavos inyectó al castellano palabras de gran musicalidad, samba, mambo, tango, marimba, congas y timbal. Nuevo Herald

MIAMI BOOK FAIR / The Briefest Dictionary

Surge, entonces, la pregunta: ¿nace o se hace el lenguaje? Liderados por Noam Chomsky, unos sostienen que el software del lenguaje viene instalado. Otros teorizan que hace 800 mil años Homo antecesor ya dominaría un lenguaje oral bastante articulado como para denominarlo simbólico. Incluso, dos millones de años atrás Homo habilis balbucearía un lenguaje rudimentario pero capaz de transmitir información sobre la confección de herramientas. Es decir, el lenguaje se formó de manera gradual a través de un proceso de adaptaciones. Nuevo Herald

A deluge befalls Hispanic voters as November 7 approaches. Here are five choice adjectives politicians are using for self-aggrandizement, in Spanish, and the corresponding antonyms to castigate opponents.

TRANSLATION / Business Mistakes

If the translator doesn’t understand the ideas behind words, the result is a business fiasco (and potentially a liability.) One incident comes to mind: A doctor asked an old patient suffering from depression—her granddaughter translating—if she heard voices. DASS BLOG ENGLISH
