Galeano teaches us that...
A man from the small village of Negué, on the coast of Colombia,was able to climb up to the high sky above.
Upon his return, he spoke. He said he had beheld, from up there, human existence. And he revealed that we, humans, are a sea of little bonfires.
"The world - he revealed - is that: a multitude of people, a sea
of little bonfires. Every person glows with
their own light among all others. There are not two bonfires that are the same.
There are big bonfires and small bonfires and multicoloured bonfires. There are
people whose fire is peaceful, which does not even tremble in the wind, and
people whose fire is wild, which fills the air with sparkles. Some bonfires,
dull fires, neither gleam nor burn; but others burn life with such zeal that
you can't even look at them without blinking, and whoever comes close to their
fire becomes aflame."
