João Manuel Ribeiro – Mi abuelo, rey de las pequeñas cosas
I have no throne, crown or palace like the kings of the world. I am a king unlike any other. I am king of myself and of my own life. Being king, I am lord of all that belongs to me.
That is what it means to reign. I reign over my life, decide what to do, when and how to live. Kingdom over my thoughts and ideas. And I like to look at things, not how they really are, but how they could be or how I wish they were.
What I do is simple: I dream, I transform reality, I give free rein to the imagination. I do it in such a way that I do not know exactly where the real ends and the fantasy begins.
With that I did not understand half of what Grandpa told me, but I loved the way he spoke, his eyes flooded with joy, the simple gestures and the posture of a king. I thought, self-absorbed: –My grandpa is a king! Long live the king! Long live my grandpa!
