Moscas

moscas.jpg

Mis padres a veces pecan de ser unos superticiosos del carajo, y no los culpo, pues me hubiese gustado vivir algunas de sus experiencias propias en temas esotéricos, que tienen que ver con la santería. Nunca he participado de alguna misa o celebración a las deidades africanas. Si acaso una que otra consulta con un santero, tarot y la borra del café. A mí me da la impresión de que mis padres saben mucho más de lo que dicen saber pues no por nada mi madre se tiraría un comentario como el que: “Dicen que cuando se meten muchas moscas así en la casa es que alguien se va morir”.La primera vez que oí tal comentario saliendo de la boca de mi madre–la misma que a través de todo este tiempo me ha hecho creer que me patina el coco, y la verdad no miente— y particularmente saliendo de ella con una actitud pasmosa, se despertó en mí tal fascinación que desde entonces siempre estuve pendiente a las actividades de este animalito alado y su co-relación con tales eventualidades.

Pese a que algunas variedades pueden transmitir enfermedades al ser humano como el dengue, la malaria, y la fiebre amarilla, las más familiarizadas con la gente son las siguientes: los torsalos (Familia Cuterebridae), la mosca de la fruta (Familia Tephritidae), la mosca minadora de la hojas (Familia Agromyzidae), y el gusano barrenador del tornillo (Familia Calliphoridae). Las moscas, al igual que los zancudos y los tábanos, pertenecen al grupo conocido como "Diptera", que comprende a unas cien mil especies. ¿A qué se debe el nombre?, simplemente a que poseen sólo dos alas membranosas y no cuatro como el resto de los insectos.

Y pasó lo que siempre quise ver, el que la casa se llenara de moscas días antes de que se muriera alguien de la familia o alguien muy cercana a ella. Bien podríamos acharcárselos al gallerín que mantiene mi padre, pero contra, tantas “sincronicidades” juntas no podían ser pura coincidencia por causa del vaho en el gallerín.  Para aquel el entonces mi bisabuela agonizaba en su lecho de muerte llamando a todo el mundo por su nombre con una lucidez increíble, pero lo más interesante de aquel momento, si nos ponemos un poco morbosos, era el que ella llamase y señalara de la nada a gente que ya estaba muerta. Eso mi madre me lo comentó alguna vez cuando presenció su deceso, luego de yo describirle a ella como días antes el espiritu de mi bisabuela se había paseado por aquí, en la casa  y yo había puesto los pies en polvorosa. O sea que me largué pal carajo dejándole toda la sala completita.

Entonces, un día, matando el tiempo en la universidad me da con buscar alguna información general en relación a las moscas, y digo, no sé si es otra “sincronicidad” en forma de respuesta a todas mis interrogantes, pero lo que conseguí me fue de mucho interés, algo así como un puño a la boca del estómago que te deja sin aire.

Citaré un poco: “ […]¿Y las moscas? ¿Qué pinta el díptero –multiplicado– sobre la cara de la bella? Asiduas al festín de los cadáveres, cancerberas diminutas del paso por la vida, serían la corroboración del pensamiento ascético.[…]Lo remacharon los Padres de la Iglesia: “Guardaos de la amiga del diablo”. ¡El diablo y su ejército de moscas! La mujer, la muerte, las moscas, el diablo… ¿Cómo no rendirse a la evidencia?”

[Debo decir, que la imagen que ven al principio de este relato pertenece a este ensayo aquí citado].

Ya luego de estar un tanto receptiva a tal eventualidad, siguieron apareciéndose las moscas conforme al que alguien falleciera. Tan pronto se sabía la noticia, eventualmente todas las moscas desaparecían al igual que como vinieron. Nadie decía nada, nadie se cuestionaba la incómoda visita por no querer sonar descabellado. Y fue entonces cuando las moscas recién regresaron de nuevo, y yo me atreví a hablar: “Se va morir alguien”. Admito que me disfruté en ser la primera en notar la invasión y quien con unas palabras contundentes hablaba de muerte. Como siempre, atribuyeron mi nefasta predicción al desquicie mio. Pero nada más había que darse cuenta del manto silencioso de todos  y de la risa nerviosa de mi padre para creer en lo evidente. Luego lo descubrí llamando a sus hermanos  para ver si todo estaba bien.

Bueno, para no seguir extendiéndome, las moscas aparecieron el viernes de hace dos semanas atrás, ya el domingo de esa misma semana sabíamos del asesinato de un buen querido amigo nuestro, que murió baleado a consecuencia de 23 tiros en un incidente todavía confuso en los informes de la policía.

  1. If not for your writing this topic could be very convoluted and oblique.

  2. Mi nombre es Sergi y me dedicaste un ejemplar de tu libro ” girasoles al amanecer”, en el Centre el Camí de Sabadell. Me ha ofrecido unos ratos de lectura muy agradables y reflexivos y por ello te quiero dar las gracias por tu ternura, tanto en persona como a través de tus escritos.Que tu camino te lleve hacia tu paz.Namaste

  3. I like to party, not look articles up online. You made it happen.

  4. Yes, I saw, and applauded, the article in “The Catholic Herald”.Very nice to see Fr. Briggs looking his old self again. The photo seems to show him leaning on a rose coloured table napkin, but I may be wrong.I note Father’s recommendation of Harviestoun’s ale and will look into this, but I really don’t see what’s wrong with “Bishop’s Finger” (5.4%), a most pleasant ale.

  5. Dunford will stay in cabinet because Stelmach will need representation from southeast Alberta and Lethbridge. Unless he can convince Paul Hinman to join cabinet (which isn’t out of the realm of posibility) Dunford will probably be a good choice until the next election. This is assuming Dunford wants to stay in cabinet.

  6. Y pregunto: Cebrian (4 millones de euros en acciones), Iñaki, y el resto de directivos de PRISA que, como p.e. Matias Cortés se embolsarán 8 milloncetes de euros con lo de Liberty ¿son tiburones financieros o santos apóstoles de la izquierda?Me gusta o disgusta: 0  0

    Excellent comments Larry. So good in fact, I must admit I need to stop and mull it over a bit more deeply.

  10. Good to hear that Bela’s back again.

    the points you made.

  12. Dat is nu het goede leven, genieten van elk moment van je dag en de kleine dingen in het leven.Ik betrap mijzelf er nog steeds regelmatig op dat ik maar doordender en me veel te druk maak.Ik geloof dat ik maar eens een cursus onthaasten moet gaan doen ofzo

  13. An answer from an expert! Thanks for contributing.

  14. UTS: Still struggling with that reading and comprehension thing, aren't you? It's good to see that you don't let facts or even relevance get in your way. And you left a big greasy nose print on your post. Ewwwww.

  15. It constantly amazes me just how blog owners such as your self can find some time and also the dedication to keep on writing exceptional posts. Your website isfantastic and one of my must read websites. I just had to say thanks.

  19. What an awesome way to explain this-now I know everything!

  20. When read "I knew it when I picked it up" my heart sank:( but my experience has been the opposite. I found this old blue and white cup and admired it so after the purchase I had to unwrap it and hold it. Yeah…I was so excited to get it inside the house that I dropped it! And unfortunately super glue wouldn't have help. But sounds like your husband is as crafty as mine!:)

  21. Taking the overview, this post hits the spot

    Ha ha, I'm so glad I didn't remove the rss feed when you announced you were closing scamp. Welcome back, can't wait to read your pieces again. When is your new book going to the press? I enjoyed the first one, and I've recommended it to people who were just starting in advertising, even though some of the stuff was very UK centric and wouldn't apply to other countries. Good luck with your startup, maybe it'll grow into an independent agency. Btw, what do you make of BBH's sale to Publicis?

  23. You’ve really captured all the essentials in this subject area, haven’t you?

  24. De enigste film die ik heb gezien van deze is She’s the man, en ik ben helemaal weg van die film. Ik heb hem nu pas twee keer gezien, maar ik ga hem zeker nog wel een paar keer kijken.

  25. These are some great comments! Yes, technically when you publish a book you are an author. Even if you don’t do a lick of promo. In that case, you’re just a lazy author I think every author should think of their book as a business and market and promo the legs off of it! If not, possible, then teach others how to do it, and learn! We teach what we must learn. And for you writers, come on over to the author side, when you are ready, and if you’re not interested in all that, that’s ok too.

  28. An intelligent point of view, well expressed! Thanks!

  29. Hmm…se la domanda del Milionario è stata fatta nei giorni scorsi, mi sembra probabile che qualcuno degli autori del programma abbia letto la voce di wiki italia trovandovi aggiunta la balla, si sia detto “Va’ che bello, questa non l’abbiamo ancora chiesta!” e l’abbia mandata avanti senza nemmeno sognarsi di verificare…Ora, non so come fosse posta la domanda, ma se fosse stata sul tipo “vero o falso”, il concorrente avrebbe forse spazio per un ricorso…

  30. What’s it take to become a sublime expounder of prose like yourself?

  31. Thanks for contributing. It’s helped me understand the issues.

    Link exchange is nothing else except it really is
    just placing other person’s site link in your page at suitable place along with other person will also do same for you.

  35. Acho que algum carro diferente da Brawn faz a pole. Mas vai faltar gasolina. Barrichello ou Button em segundo passam o pole nos boxes. Acho que vai dar dobradinha da Brawn de novo. Tomara que desta vez, Rubens na frente. Acho que o sr. Brawn não vai sacanear o Barrichello desta vez.

  36. Is really a effective partnership between somebody that is extremely religious and someone who isn’t religious whatsoevermore particularly is it feasible when the individual who is religious discusses religion constantly despite being relayed through buddies he discusses it an excessive amount of?

    I was also at the conference, and loved that talk. Your summary is great, but you missed my favorite tip! Have baskets on the stairs, one for each upstairs room, for all the stuff that needs to go back up there. So simple and obvious in retrospect, but I'd never have thought of it myself.Thanks for posting the link to BSCD; I hadn't heard of it before Colleen's talk, but I'm curious to check it out further.

  38. 2 kinds of discounts applicable here :first is the 1 to 3 or even 6 or 12 Month installment plans w/o interest regularly offered by the department store OR supermart – you can call OR check their On-Line Mall,second is the 3 ~ 5 % discount sometimes applied on the product itself and more of a promotion for the stores so have to inquire once the sale starts .

  39. I have a 4 year old Scott CR-1 road bike. I wish to cycle across the USA, west to east, paved roads. I will carry the absolute minimum and plan to camp out. The bike is excellent condition. Thank you.

  40. This picture of a second grader dressed as Ron Washington got a lot of play on the internet this past week.  It also got the Rangers’ attention and they have invited the young man, seven-year-old Liam Roybal, to exclaim “Play Ball!” before Sunday’s World Series Game 3 in Texas.

  41. APPLICATION FOR APPRENTICESHIP Hi,I have passed Grade 12,N6 doing electronic engineering and NQF level 2 for electrical engineering and I would like to apply for apprenticeship at your company.

  42. I would say something soft on top, like a black chiffon or silk blouse, or a soft loose jersey tee. A good pair of black ballet flats and a statement cuff or necklace.

  43. Felt so hopeless looking for answers to my questions…until now.

  44. Hei.Så morsomt du:)Jeg må prøve men tror ikke det kommer opp så mye av interesse..Syns bildet av deg var fint jeg :)klem kathrin

  45. Appreciation for this information is over 9000-thank you!

  46. J’ai eu l’occasion de jouer avec un Trivial Pursuit récent, et, stupeur, les camaberts ont été améliorés : il y a une collerette qui empêche de les mettre à l’envers (c’était la poisse totale) et permet de facilement les enlever d’un coup d’ongle.Et j’ai trouvé, en « vieux » nostalgique, que le niveau des questions avait baissé, comme le bac, tout se perd mon bon monsieur…
