The Pillow Book of Carmen Garcia

The Pillow Book of Carmen Garcia

by Alfonso Borello
     
 
HOW DETRIMENTAL IS living in fear, segregated, trodden, almost discarded by society? I shouldn't use such terrible words; well, guess what? I've learned to live with it for the past year, more or less; I'm no longer keeping track of time. I could blame the ones who degraded me, with or without intentions, but sadly, and with tremendous courage, I can only blame myself

Overview

HOW DETRIMENTAL IS living in fear, segregated, trodden, almost discarded by society? I shouldn't use such terrible words; well, guess what? I've learned to live with it for the past year, more or less; I'm no longer keeping track of time. I could blame the ones who degraded me, with or without intentions, but sadly, and with tremendous courage, I can only blame myself. I can only blame the terrible choices I've made, and day after day I can only find the strength to survive, to live with hope, to get better, so that I can preserve my dignity. This journal was not intended for any purpose, probably it shouldn't even be read; it was only meant to be written. It's a disturbing chronicle; a life that is slowly slipping away, deteriorating—perhaps. It's about self-respect. Hopefully I shall not bore you with any cathartic effect, because it would not be my intention.

Meet the Author

I would like to impress you with my numerous achievements, brilliant titles, stunts, and education background. I have no education, hopefully that will not displease you. I have no titles. And most of my achievements are, to my eyes, quite distasteful. Yeah, I forgot, English is not even my first language. Child labor has never been an issue in my family, so I went to work at age 13. I've been a movie projectionist, I restored ancient books from the Venice flood, I sold real estate, I worked in a Chamber of Commerce, I worked in resorts, hotels, restaurants, and on and on and on. I had a brief 5-year stint in the military where I learned how to read. After that I traveled a bit and learned a couple words in a few languages. Now I'm a pilot, I like planes. Now I can even write a little. I love stories, but I like to be in the middle of them. I am the main character, more or less, of my own stories; hopefully you will not find it suffocating.
