Sjáumst Ísland

Posted in do que penso by spav on 25 Maio, 2011

Para a hora de publicación deste artigo estarei saindo dos fiordos de Seyðisfjörður dirección ó reino de DK. Terei cruzado (outra vez) toda a illa, parando a cada paso para non deixar de admirala, inda un ano despois da miña chegada non deixa de sorprenderme. Creo que nunca deixará de facelo. Creo que parte da miña cabeza quedará aquí por sempre.

Atrás quedan…, bueno, xa podedes imaxinar o que queda. Queda unha vida embutida en dez meses. Quedan centos de miles de postais na retina e uns cantos miles de fotos no disco duro. E non queda nada máis, porque todo o resto lévoo comigo, ben no corazón, ben na miña cabeza.

E agora qué?. Agora todo está por vir.

while you are away
my heart comes undone
slowly unravels
in a ball of yarn
the devil collects it
with a grin
our love
in a ball of yarn

he’ll never return it

so when you come back
we’ll have to make new love

Björk – ‘Unravel

Takk fyrir og sjáumst Ísland.

Revenge is not justice

We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush’s compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic. Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s, and he is not a “suspect” but uncontroversially the “decider” who gave the orders to commit the “supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” (quoting the Nuremberg Tribunal) for which Nazi criminals were hanged: the hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of refugees, destruction of much of the country, the bitter sectarian conflict that has now spread to the rest of the region.
