Oranges

The blog follows the name given by Carlos Fuentes to his book The Orange Tree. The round fruit that you find in all continents is a symbol of my small stories and how they connect to different faces of the present context. It presents my reviews of books I have read, my talks to our “vecinitos” in the veredas in Chía, the Adventures Club (which I have with Ernie and Rafa, our grandsons), Colombia (one of my countries), Philosophy, and Other Notes, including my writing on several other topics. A special chapter is the Redsnapper in which I share my mourning after Pablo and Flaca’s passing away in April 2021. .

El nombre del blog sigue el significado que le dio Carlos Fuentes a su obra El Naranjo – O los círculos del tiempo. La fruta redonda está en todos los continentes y simboliza algunas de mis pequeñas historias, y como ellas se conectan con contextos mayores. Presenta mis notas sobre mis lecturas, las conversaciones mañaneras que tengo con nuestros vecinitos en Chía, el Club de la Aventura (que tengo con Ernie o con Rafa, nuestros dos nietos), Colombia (el país en el que nací y que adoro y en el que vivo), Filosofía, y Otras notas (que incluye mis propios relatos sobre distintos teams). Un capítulo especial es Pargo Rojo, en el que comparto mi duelo luego del gran viaje de Pablo y de la Flaca en Abril del 2021.

  1. May I simply say what a relief to find someone that truly knows what
    they are discussing on the net. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people really need to read this and understand this
    side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular since you certainly possess the gift.
