The Pitcher

“I never knew I had an arm until this guy called out, ‘Hey you want to try and get a ball in the hole, sonny?’ I was only nine, but mom said, ‘Come on, let’s play.’ This Carney guy with no teeth and a fuming cigarette hands me five blue rubber balls and says if I throw three in the hole we win a prize. He’s grinning, because he took mom’s five bucks and figures a sucker is born every minute. That really got me, because we didn’t have any money after Fernando took off, and he only comes back to beat up mom and steal our money. So I really wanted to get mom back something, you know, for her five bucks.” Read more…

Al Margen Del Destino

Al Margen Del Destino

Al Margen del Destino/On the Edge of Destiny explores the two possible ways of thinking every human has conjured up regarding his or her existence, being: either the course of any event is not predetermined, and it answers only to the chaos and blind luck, or there is, indeed, such thing as fate or destiny: that universal laws of nature controls the stories of each and every one toward some inevitable result, within some sort of “general plan”.
