That contest was like artisanal cheese, made by hand from peasant expertise and ancestral recipes. It was an original product that spoke of the satisfaction and dedication of its unknown producers so that its flavor, although complex, as well as its capricious shape and unique smell that only time gave it, captivated the eye, the palate and the mind of the distant. and unsuspecting consumer when opening the pages that contained such a literary delicacy and that, upon internalizing it, in addition to the full enjoyment it gave him, gave wings to his imagination.
'The Art – Mirror of an Immigrant – Story of Cornelio Campos', told by its protagonist and embodied in words by Cuquis Sandoval, more than a universal literary work, it is the best and largest of the murals by this artist, who is presented singularly:
"I am Cornelio Campos, born in Cherán, Michoacán, of Purepecha blood; my profession is to be a painter of murals; I have been integrated into the culture of the United States for a few yesterdays, I live in North Carolina, a city full of history and that has been my home and high point as an artist."
Sorry for the interruption! I'm not on the guest list. Please allow me to say a few words.
Family and friends, I need to ask you in this sublime moment to try to put aside those circumstances of yesterday that marked the path of our bifurcated lives. I beg you to listen with devotion and human understanding to these phrases that, inevitably and hastily... in gushes!, flow from my sorrowful father's heart. From this father who attends the wedding of his forever idolized son without invitation.
It is impossible to know precisely if the improbable situation that Hortensia del Perpetuo Socorro Sánchez García experienced in Santafé during that forced vacation period would have been the same or at least similar in any other part of the world. As it happened to her that time where her overwhelmed mind and 'tired steps of fighting for nothing' took her, how in private she reproached herself and lashed out at her soul.
Smiling and sipping a coffee, with a sweet, almost childish gaze and that jovial, authentic posture that we know him from his program El Rollo de Fili, there was the illustrious countryman who during his forty years of work photographed and showed us the other Colombia with its history, geography, culture and countless peoples and characters such as Gabriel García Márquez, Fanny Mike, Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza, Obregón, Botero, Shakira, Salvo Basilie, Gloria Valencia de Castaño, presidents, politicians, businessmen... also, Donald Trump and many others that were on the cover of some of the magazines with the largest national circulation or that are part of his seven published books, apart from those that are in the process of being published and disseminated.
It happened to me when I arrived in the capital, in the Quiroga neighborhood. I was 11 years old. My aunt Cecilia sent me to buy bread on the corner, less than two blocks from the house. My cousin Álvaro, a little older than me, liked to run errands because the landlady always gave him a bandage.
The Older Man (HME), twice as old as his Young Virtual Friend (JAV), talked to anyone else about those issues... or, perhaps, no one stopped balls at him! —I don't even treat them with the members of my family, always busy, therefore, without time to cross words, except for one or another favor... which I do quickly and as best as possible to return to my writing desk —HME snorted on the other side of the cell phone
There is something I want to complement, brother, before starting with mine. It is in relation to what you said in one of your previous stories. Not only time is, today, our greatest and most expensive asset. Perhaps just as valuable, perhaps more, are our experiences. As well as the infinity of contributions that we have made in silence to this beautiful country... and in the tumultuous time when we did it: the last quarter of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st.

Every day at 6:40 am they meet in the same place, without fail! After kissing and hugging each other with undisguised passion and passionate love, they sit on the matchless hard cement bench under the concupiscent shade of a proud and old pine tree that guards, no one knows since when, that small popular neighborhood park.
