Isidoro de Acevedo Laprida now suffers at home of pulmonary congestion.

That home will become the birthplace of many words, formed into a variety of shapes; all from the mind of Jorge Luis Borges.

However – – -, do you see how I get ahead of the story?

The words are not yet born.

They have to be massaged;

and messaged in various intentional but convoluted ways.

They are to be the product of history: past and future. The words sat unused – – – for decades – – – in a library. Great-Grandparents from Northumbria;

Norse and English ancestors recorded by Snori Sturluson; in Iceland.

I have heard that he has recently been born.

Oh – – – how I wish to meet him; and to read his strange books.
