Two workers in a Southern café, enjoying a silent game of chess.

Two workers in a Southern café, enjoying a silent game of chess.






The Righteous



A man who, as Voltaire wished, cultivates his garden.

He who is grateful that music exists on earth.

He who discovers an etymology with pleasure.

Two workers in a Southern café, enjoying a silent game of chess.

The potter pondering on a colour and a shape.

A typographer who sets accurately this page, which he may dislikes.

A woman and a man reading the final tercets of a certain canto.

He who is stroking a sleeping animal.

He who justifies, or seeks to justify, an injustice done to him.

He who is grateful for Stevenson’s existence.

He who prefers the others to be right.

These people, unaware of each other, are saving the world.


Los Justos


Un hombre que cultiva un jardín, como quería Voltaire.

El que agradece que en la tierra haya música.

El que descubre con placer una etimología.

Dos empleados que en un café del Sur juegan un silencioso ajedrez.

El ceramista que premedita un color y una forma.

Un tipógrafo que compone bien esta página, que tal vez no le agrada.

Una mujer y un hombre que leen los tercetos finales de cierto canto.

El que acaricia a un animal dormido.

El que justifica o quiere justificar un mal que le han hecho.

El que agradece que en la tierra haya Stevenson.

El que prefiere que los otros tengan razón.

Esas personas, que se ignoran, están salvando el mundo.

Excellent capture, Marisa, perfectly timed. I like that you can't see any more of the chess players than their hands poised to move.

A lovely and well imagined picture, Marisa. It looks like a warm and comforting place.
