Sample text

It can refer, for example, to the transgression of the dominant norms in the society with Victorian characteristics that came tumbling down in the 60s; acts that, if common in classic Antiquity, had been shut away in the basements of sin since the arrival of Christianity; practices that were performed in secret since they were considered to be a vice, an aberration of nature. Even more, the essential factor of an erotic relationship, the profound communication of bodies, the dissolution of one in the other, was considered reprehensible throughout that long time period.

The wasps, on the other hand, are not only more elegant, but they are also more intelligent. That’s why they don’t want to work for us. And, like the butterflies, they suck on everything that appeals to them, from flowers and fruit to excrement. They never sting anyone who is not afraid of them and, when they do sting, they do it as a prevention, because they can imagine the hysterical slap that is going to fall on them. Have you ever heard of anyone who has died of wasp stings, apart from cases of allergy?

But the origin of that distance lies in the uncompromising attitude of a boy who kept his observations to himself, not very sure that he would be understood. For example, the impression caused by the visit of some relatives whose family relationship I never understood clearly, not at the time, nor did I bother later to clarify it.
