La Espera

USD400.00

The morning of January 26th of 2011, the streets of New York looked like an impressionist landscape of grey buildings, dark coats and umbrellas, yellow taxis with their pale-front and red-back lights, and everywhere, piles of white snow…a lot of snow.

I abandoned my plan to visit the Whitney Museum of American Art, and walked sliding the few blocks which separated my hotel from Central Park. The great masters of American art could wait for another day.

When I arrived to Columbus Circle at the southwest corner of the park, it was still snowing heavily and I was happy for it. The sight was magnificent. I had never seen that much snow in that city before and the weather forecast promised even more.

Following the few footprints of another adventurer, I walked along the path which goes deep northeast from that corner; suddenly, I found myself in a place which resembled the Siberian tundra where a few civilization objects had magically appeared: an equestrian monument, a pedestrian traffic light and a wooden bench which captured my attention. It was placed just underneath the naked branches of a twisted tree loaded with snow as well…good timber −I thought−, they might well be made of the same matter. I also thought that together, they were stoically waiting for the arrival of spring to provide their shade and rest to the usual visitors.

An intense cold sting in my right foot brought me back from my cogitations. The sole of my shoe had frozen and broken in two. Despite the abrupt awakening to reality, the idea was already registered; La Espera (2011) was only a matter of time.

I rushed in search of a shoe store. While I was trying on my new shoes, I smiled and thought: this was worthwhile; today I was able to admire “a God’s original, authentic, dated and signed”.
