The Light in the Shadows

I go from my house to the river, from the river to the plaza, from the plaza to the cathedral, from the cathedral to school... Walking is my favorite activity. I walk everywhere in the small city where I live. This makes me feel like I'm the boss of the streets and yards, the gardens and forests. And of myself!

A Meeting of Words

My mother let me sit in the window seat, because the journey would be long and she knew I liked to look out at the landscape, counting sheep, trees, and clouds. The journey lasted six hours. Six hours of thoughts, six hours of anxieties but also six hours of excitement, because we were heading toward a new home, to a new life.

Going Home

Sometimes, I don’t feel like going home. I run around a bush a hundred times, or I count all the trees along the avenue once again, or I simply lie down on the grass of the plaza, which is like an enormous green carpet all painted with flowers.

I, Reader

Pedro didn’t like to read. He didn’t see the sense of being seated with a book in his hands instead of... living! Nonetheless, he was bought books full of colors, hardcover books and softcover books, books that promised to speak to him in his choice of twenty different languages, but they always wound up gathering dust on the shelves. Until one day…

The Musician and the Dancer

He tunes his instruments and begins to make the sweetest melodies. His repertoire is vast and his job is to play all night long, all alone. There, on a leaf damp with dew, she finds the solitary musician. Moved by the sounds and prisoner of an emotion she had never experienced before, she decides to hide behind some rocks and spy, like a silent witness to a concert being performed only for her.
