Could you be-loved?*



Dinorah Pérez-Rementería

Have you ever pictured the love of your life? Tall, short, athletic, skinny, overweight, artistic, pragmatic, with blue eyes, smart? What if you haven’t and he takes you by surprise? What if he appears just when you think everything is (not perfect but at least) Ok? What if you become a sentimental little girl after having been praised for being cynical? Let’s say, for example, you may spend three hours on the road without noticing it, smile at the sunset in your mirror, listen to the horoscopes on the radio, spy on a couple of doves kissing in the kitchen window, or even discover (God, this is really embarrassing!) the most beautiful rainbow over I-395. And you can’t understand how –why- it is happening, for there isn’t any logic (except an ironic hypothesis). You cried so much when you left your country four years ago, you wanted to leave Miami as soon as the aircraft landed, you couldn’t stand the fact that your younger brother needed to stay for a period of two months in the number one Spanish-speaking city in the United States; so many Cubans there (the kind of Cubans who would still be loud in a quiet place or look at you with shameless eyes). And yet, you could’ve been saved if you had gone somewhere else in Aventura, Little Havana, Plantation, Pembroke Pines. Only he exists now. He is there, so far away; drown between patients, nurses and front-desk ladies, infinite cell-phone numbers and no-number-telephones, gigantic wedding rings, walls, doors.

Di, the love of my life took me by surprise (cynical little girl that I am). Not perfect, skinny, with a quiet-killer wit. He's my Zen Master no less and today is his birthday!!! Happy birthday, love.

Hahaha. This is actually nice that tumiami is publishing in English. The problem is going to be now what language should we comment with, Ensligh or Spanish?

Alex en NY dijo...

Pardon. Dinorah, don't worry. You'll find him.

Soy feminista dijo...

El amor es un tópico difícil y más para el hombre porque ellos crecen inculcados a presentarle la peor cara. Está bien enamorarse, pero enamorarse demasiado es un problema. Un signo de debilidad. La mujer se alimenta de esa signo pero a al ainversa, mientras más te enamoras, más femenina eres.

Anónimo dijo...

Esrto parece una novela mexicana.

Good for you Dino!

Who's the author?

la mordida dijo...

Sin aguarle la fiesta a los presentes....esto parece una conga o una competencia de amiguitos con mucha nostalgia por un momento núbil. ¡Qué pena!

JR dijo...

In fact Tumiami is therapy. Blogotherapy. Writings or readings can be a great relief here, Dino.

RI dijo...

That's all we need Dinorita...esa es una verdad universal.

La Mano Poderosa dijo...

Dinorah te deje un comentario ayer pero no salio. Todo viene a su tiempo, recuerdate que Dios dispone y el hombre propone. Muy bello escrito. Amarnos es la salvacion de todos, aunque pocos los saben aplicar.
