Y no hay más

[Olga y Anton parecían felices en esta foto]

Sólo puedo leer los relatos de Chéjov de poco en poco: algunas veces desvela abismos tan penosos de la existencia humana que no quiero seguir mirando, siempre he sido un poco avestruz ante las miserias. La pobreza y mezquindad en la que viven algunos de sus personajes no es lo peor. Lo peor es que sus días están completamente vacíos y son inútiles. Esa sensación es tan cercana a mi propia vida a veces, que seguir mirando es como airear un muñón gangrenado.
