Dear Renate, many thanks for your warm words! You should know in my nomadic
life and heart (Uruguay, Sweden, Palestine and many other places) -empyre
and Netbehaviour, hosted by our wonderful Furtherfield friends, has always
been "home" to me.
I am so happy I could gather this month people I admire and love so dearly
as Teddy, Pablo de Soto, Alicia, Sabela, Ethel, Eduardo, Ricardo and
everyone of my guests.
To connect two of my identities (I am a kind reader and fan of Rosi
Braidotti and find her concept of nomadic identity very appealing) my
belonging to the South (where I was born) and to the North (where I lived
the most of my life) is a work of love and a work of obstination.
I don't believe in borders or in maps and I am fully aware of what you
describe, the levels of abject poverty in some parts of the North and the
life of some of the richs in the deep South are interchangeable.
I feel than the only real divisions are between poor and wealthy and that's
the challenge, how to make people's life, our own lifes, more full with
dignity and solidarity.
"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with
your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always
long to return.
— Leonardo da Vinci
