I am reading about Greece and its elections. I am reading too about the favorite book of a philosopher who I don’t like him. I read too the Sunday Vargas Llosa’s article. Sometimes, it’s better to keep silent, Mr Nobel Prize. Why are you so acid now? Leave politics and continue writing, colleague. That’s my simple piece of advice… but do what you want! You began to write fine, really fine… with the pen of the masters, taking care of words and rhythms, choosing every word as it was the last word of worlds. What have you lost? Inspiration? I know, you had talked about politics in those first books… but you were with that people and you breathe their worries and their sins, their tears and their happiness.

Now, you are in London offended for waiting 45 minutes. Haven’t you got a Nobel Prize to wait? You talked bad, Mr. Llosa, you talked bad about an artist like you… maybe not so good maybe not so clever as you… but an artist! And every artist needs respect from others. Don’t you remember your first book? Was it easy? Is it easy to publish the first book? Is it easy to get your first exhibition? I don’t think so. I published one book and then another and another… and now I must continue my work trying to keep the honesty, trying to create something special for people. Isn’t it art? I will tell you something, Mr. Llosa, about what’s not art: the cheap criticism and your stolen politicized words. I’ve read you praising a particular politic… and now you open your Nobel mouth to destroy a plastic artist? You’ve lost your way, writer… you’ve lost the essence of art and the flavor of people, the secret truth stolen by hungry hearts of money, vice and betrayals.

If someday for a miracle I win your appreciated award, I hope I will continue as now. Maybe I’m not the best man in this world but I will be a good one, not the politic friend of fake and lies. Are you trying to buy us, Nobel Prize? If you want to buy me, you will need much more than money and lending words. You will need something that I think you’ve lost years ago: the truth.

I will leave you with a phrase of my favorite writer, Joyce: “Mistakes are the portals of discovery.” Maybe you’re not so old to learn something, Mr Nobel Prize… or probably you are.

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
