Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.

Omar Khayam

Esas lineas de Khayam me traen a la memoria estos versos autoctonos de Homero Manzi:

En un ranchito de Alsina
tengo el hogar de mi vida,
con cerco de cina-cina
y corredor de glicinas.
Hay un aljibe pintado,
bajo un parral de uva rosa,
y una camelia mimosa
temblando sobre el brocal.

Y allí también estás frisón
y eres mi lujo de cuarteador.
Rocín feliz, de crin azul,
famoso por todo el sur.
Cuando el domingo asolea
por no hacer de perezoso,
traigo el balde desde el pozo
y refresco el corredor.
Y aprovechando el fresquito
me siento bajo la parra
y al compás de mi guitarra
canto décimas de amor.

En mi ranchito de Alsina
paso tranquilo las horas,
junto al amor de la china,
que me respeta y me adora.
Y, entre su amor y las cosas
que adornan toda mi suerte,
temo, nomás, que la muerte
me saque de ese rincón.

"Nobleza de Arrabal" de Manzi y Canaro, 1946

Moldavian people have managed to maintain strong family ties, tradition, a rich culture, and a love beauty and the arts. Moldavians are extremely friendly and kind. Also, they love to socialize and make people feel comfortable. Friends will stop by each other’s homes without prior notice because they know they will be welcome. People are also not aggressive or competitive by nature.

Moldavian men always greet each other with a handshake. When a man sees a male acquaintance in a group and greets him with a handshake, it would be impolite not to shake the hands of all males in the group as well. Unlike men, Moldavian women do not shake hands to each other. In either a business or a social setting, a nod of the head is acceptable when greeting a woman.

In Moldova, shoes that a worn outdoors are removed when entering a home or apartment. Moldavian people normally change into slippers indoors. A host would be extremely offended if guests were to wear their shoes in his home.

Variando un poco el tema, veo un sublime recorte del espacio con negro.

Magias digitales orientales, tal vez?
