A pesar de los pesares: Cuaderno de la vejez (Spanish by Aurelio Arteta

By Aurelio Arteta

La ocultamos, fingimos ignorarla, pero por más que se mire para otro lado, por más que se cambie de tema o se baje los angeles voz cuando asoma en l. a. conversación, los angeles vejez, el envejecimiento, están ahí, forman parte de nuestra vida. Apenas sin percibirlo, hemos cumplido los cincuenta, los sesenta, los setenta…

¿Se puede componer un libro hermoso y lúcido sobre esta cuestión? Aurelio Arteta nos demuestra en esta obra, casi un dietario, que sí, que es mejor perder el miedo, y que pensar y vivir l. a. vejez con naturalidad nos conviene. Entre l. a. introspección y l. a. mirada atenta al mundo, sin hurtar nada a los angeles meditación, Arteta entreteje de cuando en cuando diálogos con otros pensadores clásicos y contemporáneos, pero también estampas casi costumbristas y fogonazos que deslumbran como certeros aforismos de sabiduría.

Una obra emotiva, diferente, todo un luminoso ejercicio de reflexión sobre el día a día del envejecimiento, con una moraleja clara: mejor haber nacido. Si hoy los angeles ciencia ha añadido años a l. a. vida de los angeles gente, sólo de nosotros depende colmar de vida esos años, merecer una existencia humana más plena. Es decir, digna de ser vivida a pesar de los pesares de l. a. vejez.
