  • W15 Fri - What are some things you’ve had to unlearn?

    As a white woman, of course I have had to and still need to continue to unlearn the racist ‘presets’ that I was born with against people of colour. But I also think I’ve gotten better in recent years of how to stop judging people by appearance so much? My family is very judgemental of people’s appearances, always commenting if someone is overweight or if a girl is wearing a skirt that they think is too short, but nowadays they knows not to say stuff in front of me, because they know that I will shut them down, since what other people decide to do with their bodies is none of our business.

    Como una mujer blanca, por supuesto necesito entender y trabajar para des-aprender las nociones racistas con que he crecido. También creo que he mejorado en des-aprender de juzgar a las personas en cuanto sus apariencias. Mi familia siempre juzga a las personas basadas en sus apariencias, pero ahora saben que no se deberían hacerlo en frente de mí, porque siempre les dicen que las personas pueden hacer lo que quieren con sus cuerpos, porque no nos afecta.


    W15 Sat - What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

    Definitely fantasy! I LOVE stuff with superpowers and magic and magical creatures and just stuff that couldn’t ever be real. Me encanta la fantasia! Me gusta cosas con poderes y criaturas mágicas y cosas que no pueden ser reales. ファンタジーが大好きです。超能力とか魔法といった現実にできないことが好きです。

  • The light with which the lightning

    tenacious from the Catatumbo

    to the sailor sets the course

    like a limpid beacon;

    the dawn of the tropics,

    the bonfire which dazzles

    when to the zenith rises

    the chariot of the sun…

    [These] Do not emulate from your glories

    the fulgent glow!

    Udón Pérez, Zulia’s Anthem (First Stanza). Maracaibo, 1909.

  • As she’d been speaking, they’d reached the brow of the hill and now Goosebrook was revealed, appearing before them in all its bucolic spring-infused glory. The honeyed Cotswold limestone of the buildings was offset by the abundance of greenery and the bright colours of the flowers in the gardens. The church spire rose into the sky, the roofs of the jumble of houses and cottages were mottled ochre yellow and grey, and children and parents were visible on the village green in front of the church. There were a few shops – not many, Mimi knew – as well as a popular local pub called the Black Swan. And there too, snaking through the village and gleaming silver in the sunlight, was the brook itself, with the old stone bridge arching across it.
