IF: REVÉS/REVERSAL


Si yo tuviera que mostrarme del revés (como un chaleco), quizás vieras la noche más oscura.
O, quién sabe… la explosión original.
Un viento de luz que cegaría tus ojos para siempre.
No sería sorpresa, para vos, ya nos hemos cambiado de ropa muchas veces. Vos y yo hemos usado, juntos, el mismo traje muchas veces.
El traje, de navegar, cubierto de algas, el traje de soñar, cubierto de nieve, el traje de la duda, cubierto con senderos que se bifurcan, como aquel jardín, de Borges, que nosotros leímos hace tanto. ¿Te acordás?

Entonces el tiempo vendrá hacia nosotros. Vos y yo seremos las agujas del reloj. Uniremos los senderos. Cada segundo tendrá un nombre diferente.

Y cada vuelta, será una vida. Como todos los días, hoy.


If I had to show the reverse (like a jacket), perhaps you saw the darkest night.
Or, who knows... the original explosion.
A lighted wind that would blind your eyes forever.
It would not be surprise for you, we have already changed clothes many times. You and I have worn the same suit together many times.
The suit to sail, covered with algae, the suit to dream, covered with snow, the suit of the doubt , covered with forking paths, like that Borges’s garden, we read long ago. "Do you remember?

Then the time will come to us. You and I will be the hands of the clock.
Will join the paths. Every second will have a different name.


And every turn, will be a life. Like every day, today.

Qué lindo!

Cada vuelta será una vida :) y cada vida tendrá mil vueltas como los senderos bifurcados.

Besos.

Agujas de un reloj, que se alejan, se bifurcan, para volver a juntarse, cíclicas, cambiantes, después de unas horas, después de un día, después de una vida.

Malena dijo...

Y yo también voy a volver, para ver los cambios de tu reloj.

The lake is empty. Mysterious and colorful ship sailed into the unknown. Into the unknown Vincent sky .....leaving us in the dark-blue night lonely.

Graciela dijo...

Un reloj realmente "mágico"!!!! Y una ilustración mutante!!! Una sorpresa tras otra!

Además, como es obvio, quedé prendada de la luna que descubre el cielo pintado a lo Van Gogh.
¿No andará él mismo por allí pintando?
¿Acaso lo viste Roberto, con su sombrero con las velas encendidas, iluminando la noche?

Besos.

Your beautiful, thought-provoking paintings are only second in power to your words, Roberto, which...even reading them in English...drop deep ruby, glittering gold, and brilliant blue bits of Truth into my mind. Clearly, you are a man wide-awake in the middle of the great heart/mind/soul Transformation...and I salute you!

As always, thank you so much for your appreciation of my own mutterings and fumblings.

Sus hermosas pinturas, invitan a la reflexión son la segunda en poder de sus palabras, Roberto, que ... incluso la lectura en Inglés ... gota rubí intenso, brillante de oro y brillantes bits de color azul de la verdad en mi mente. Es evidente que usted es un hombre despierto en medio de la gran corazón / mente / alma de transformación ... y yo te saludo!

Como siempre, muchas gracias por su reconocimiento de mi propia murmullos y fumblings.
Susan

Oh, boy, I can not keep up with all your changes... even the "elquesusurraenlaoscuridad " face is changing , header is changing, reverse illustration is changing....one big transformation. Is it, perhaps, due to your stay in submarine? Too little air? I know what you say: "There is nothing permanent except change " or "Everything flows, nothing stands still"
because it is impossible to step into the same river twice, isn't it?

And good morning!

Fantastico!!

Krista dijo...

Wonderful blog! Love your header!

rossichka dijo...

Oh, how much I like to be here!...
First of all - the last header is one of my favourite paintings of yours. I like that this brave surfer, who has dared to reach the Sun, is tied up to the Earth. And she is ready to pull him back if it becomes too dangerous... The rope is like a navel-string!...

It's very interesting to see how your illustration changes - as if it is alive and time changes it (like it does with us!) Your words are so thoughtful and deep. Have you tried to write (literature I mean)?
The time is in us and we are in time... The hands of the clock run one after another, but finally they join - twice in a whole turn! Just for some seconds, but still together in day and night, in good and bad moments...

rossichka dijo...

Oh, how wrong I was! The hands meet 24 times in 24 hours!!! That's much better. This could be a real love story!:)

Sung-Hee (Regina) Hong dijo...

oh Yes I remember... you were me... I were you.. we were all nothing but us... taking turns.. oh Yes I remember !

Graciela dijo...

El surfista me mató.
Roberto, sabés que a los 18 años yo vivía en Mar del Plata y estaba "muerta" por un surfer!!!
Este es totalemte delirante, me re-encantó!!!

Andrew Finnie dijo...

Hola Dr Roberto! Sorry I have been plagues by laptoppian problems (problems of the laptop, not the lap!) Oh I must say that I adore your header :) Now I am not usually into adoring headers, but If I was to come back, not as a garden gnome, a small insect, or a jellyfish, in the next life but say, if I was to come back as a header, your header would be my choice to be!

Well wonder what google translate will make of that sentence eh?

(Translated: If I come back in the next life as a header and not an inverterbrate, then I will be very happy to be a header like yours)

:)

great crackup face for icon!

back in a sec

Andrew Finnie dijo...

Well my friend, the image is as beautiful as the words, but when combined they take us to an amazing place. You are quite a poet. I hope your poetic works are collected somewhere with your poetic images and placed in something we can hold in our hands.

They deserve to be, you know?

rossichka dijo...

Hola, Roberto! I'm not used at reading others' comments, definitely not all of them and not always! I don't need it in order to write what and how I felt about what I've read and seen... But this time I read Andrew's comments and got so excited, because our perceptions about your art are so similar...:)
