I went to begin my spanish class at the Queen Sofia Institue and found out my class had been cancelled.
There was a looking for papers, a series of mouth twitches, a scanning of computers all culminating with, “I’m so sorry.”
There, I met a teacher who told me about a book by Jorge Luis Borges. A story in particular called The Circular Ruins.
This morning, I sat in a tiny coffee shop, looked to my left, saw fourteen books for sale, one of them being an Anthology of fiction by Borges.
