A strange kind of Metamorphosis

A strange kind of Metamorphosis


Flying to Frankfurt. Alex and he.

‘Where’s your suitcase?’ He asked…. and Alex couldn’t remember even if he had prepared his baggage. ‘Don’t worry, it’s one of the firsts effects of the flu. You would look disoriented in the next hours… you probably lose your point of view and maybe you will ask yourself where or when are you. I cannot help you then, you might discover it.’

‘Where is Lorraine?’ Alex asked.

‘She is with you in the hotel room. Don’t you remember?’

They might be over the Atlantic Ocean. Alex opened the window and looked through it.

‘Just clouds, my friend.’ He said. ‘It’s important to have a simple and efficient baggage. You must know all your movements and you might think in all your friends. Is it enough? We can never know, Alex. Sometimes, a baggage is similar to a book: you see its front cover and its pages… you can ever know something about its author but… for some reason the book is, little by little, flying out your hands and becoming something different that you expect.’

‘Is she with my suitcase?’

He smiled and looked through the window.

‘She is taking care of you, Alex. Don’t worry. Your blood is safe now.’


Wilson was an obscure character in the book. He tried to manipulate and to play with the reader in a strange game. In fact, I was surprised when I found him in flight even after Ihad  read the book. The words were written before and these words, with no change, will be rewritten in the future. How could it happen? How will it happen?

‘It’s happening now, doctor.’ She said.


‘What about the flight?’

‘It was good, thanks.’

‘Did you enjoy the company?’

‘I did.’

‘She is a funny girl, doesn’t she?’

Alex liked Old Michael and his unnecessary kind of talking.

‘In all these years, we spent most of our time talking about cigars, not about literature. Maybe, a book is the only art you need to enjoy alone to have a complete experience. Did you ever note that when you talk about a book you use to kill it? You can share your experiences, but these experiences changed every time we talk about them. When you finish the sentences, the book has changed, hasn’t it? It’s a strange kind of metamorphosis. That’s why criticism lost the battle: you cannot earn your live talking about living words trying to convert them into dead words. When someone reads a book, words take life for a moment and time can be a second or even a complete life, like a suitcase plenty of feelings and stories that suddenly disappears.’

‘Where is my suitcase, Wilson?’

‘It’s at the hotel, Alex.’ Old Michael asked.

‘You didn’t get any suitcase.’ Wilson asked.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
