I was born too young lacking the proper training to face this world. At age 6 I was forced to give up my education to attend school. That experience taught me the virtus of self education, life taught me the incoviniences of it. I'm not affiliated to any association, political party, religion, club or racket, since as Groucho said: I will never accept the membership of a club that admits me as a member. At age 20 I thought it was my duty to change the world. I changed it. This is it. Sorry.
I demolished several marriages that left me 6 kids. All and all, they are my best finished pieces of work. The flair for writing woke up in me quite early, which then triggered sleeping difficulties. In fact, this activity that a psychoanalyst diagnosed as a compulsive need to fill papers with words with the aim not to leave pages unwritten, but as the best lifesaver I coud obtain.
At an age that should be respectable I have the dubious glory of having survived my parents, the nonsense of the world, the forbidden substances, my own stupidity, miltary rulers, civilian rulers and, so far, the globalization, but I don´t know for how long. I did have teachers: Elsa Osorio, G.B. Shaw, el Gabo, he does not know he owes me part of the "100 years..." success; Vicente Ninno, Cortázar, Italo Calvino (above all Italo Calvino), Monterroso, Groucho Marx, Poe of course, Hawthorne and Chaplin among many others I don´t name due to my lazinesss. By the way laziness is my worst vice, but I balance it lacking envy.
Joy and grief knocked on my door with equal insistence. From the first I learned how ephemeral everything is, from the latter that I haven't learned to live without love.
