Someday the migratory process of spaniards taking place over the last years will have their place in the literature of the social sciences. I hope that somewhere between the qualitative explanations will be some reference to the term “boredom” .

Father, who is that in the photo of Corella that is under the old kitchen? That picture looks like a drawing. Arms on the jar and beret. Niceto or something? Do you know anything about him? Profession? Who was it? How did he die?

He is my paternal great-grandfather, Nicomedes Arellano, occupation farmer. I know no more. This will happen to everyone. One day a grandson of yours will ask who is this adventurer in the photos in India, in the jungles, in congresses? And no one will know how to answer…

Taking pictures can be sometimes be seen, why not, as the act of creating scenarios without having to move chairs and cardboard rocks from side to side. When creating a set, you also create a set of possibilities, you define what kind of play can be represented and who may be the characters. In this case, I’ve missed catching some morning “jogger” or a couple of kids smoking a joint, but I would have preferred a picture of, for example, a fisherman with his net.
