  1. banal remarks on the humidity

    φυσάει ένας ωραίος, χαδιάρης καιρός, φέρνει φύλλα, μετά λίγη απαλή βροχή, μετά πιο δυνατή (όλα έρχονται δε λοξά, φυσάει βορινά), ήλιος σε στραβώνει με την αντανάκλαση στα παράθυρα απέναντι, σε λίγο φτου και από την αρχή.

    (φτου πάλι αλλά για άλλο λόγο: τώρα έστειλε φίλη μήνυμα πως πρόκειται για τον κυκλώνα γκονζάλο - δεν είχα πάρει είδηση- και με ρωτά αν θα πετάξει το αεροπλάνο ή θα αποκλειστώ εδώ. μάιστα, λαμπρά, λες και δεν ξέραμε πού βγάζουν τα πολλά χάδια)


    σχετικά με χάδια, την προηγούμενη βδομάδα, η οποία άνηκε δικαιωματικά στην Μπέχντελ, με συγκίνησε πολύ αυτό:

    φαντάζομαι πως δεν είναι πρωτότυπο, όλοι έχουμε μια παρόμοια ανάμνηση: ενώ η μαμά μου με πήγαινε και έφερνε παντού, μια από τις πιο ζεστές αναμνήσεις που έχω είναι στο παλιό μας σπίτι στην Τζιροπούλου (έτσι το λέμε, το μικρό δυάρι όπου γεννήθηκα), να με έχει πάρει ο ύπνος στο κρεβάτι των γονιών μου και ο μπαμπάς μου να με παίρνει αγκαλιά για να με μεταφέρει στο δικό μου. θα πρέπει να είμαι γύρω στα 4,5-5, έχω ξυπνήσει και είμαι μεγάλη, μπορεί δηλαδή να με αφήσει κάτω και να πάω μόνη μου αλλά κρατώ τα μάτια μου κλειστά για να με πάει στην αγκαλιά του.

    Libra Some say the world will end in ice, some fire. However, the end of your personal world will be most notable for banal remarks on the humidity.

    - Ok, see, now this is not a great road to go down. Why don’t we try just have a normal conversation? Maybe we could start by you telling me what you like.

  23. unloved

    In her book “The Pleasures of the Text: Violette Leduc and Reader Seduction,” Elizabeth Locey argues that for Leduc, writing is at once an attempt to seduce her readers and find salvation through them. That may be true of many writers, but it feels particularly touching for someone who felt as unloved as Leduc did. When she wrote about her time living with Sachs, Leduc admitted that she bored him with her piteous tales about her childhood, but also wrote, “I am courting him with my misfortunes.” It’s a startlingly naked admission that Mr. Provost embraces in a film that conveys how Violette’s storytelling — as with Scheherazade and countless others — is also a means of survival.

    “Legal migration is the best way to fight illegal migration”, Commissioner-designate Avramopoulos

    Commissioner-designate for Migration and Home Affairs Dimitri Avramopoulos, the nominee from Greece for the position of EU Commissioner, was examined by the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties and Home Affairs (LIBE) at a hearing on Tuesday 30 September.

    Avramopoulos opposed the notion of a ‘Fortress Europe’, and stated that “it is Europe’s responsibility to offer protection to refugees fleeing war or persecution, to respect the rights of asylum seekers and, in
    particular, to respect human beings’ lives and the right of non-refoulement in all circumstances.”

    Avramopoulos was supportive of opening up channels for legal migration and stated that resettlement should be increased. The Commissioner-designate also stated that European embassies in third states could deal with the claims of people seeking international protection or a legal migration status.


    The candidate also stressed his intention to strengthen Frontex and suggested that the EU Border Agency could develop into “an authority that protects borders and save lives”.

    According to Avramopoulos some aspects of the Dublin system, which establishes which Member State will examine an asylum application, need revising.

    Commenting on Avramopoulos’ stand on freedom of movement for refugees within the EU, professor Steve Peers said: “he appeared to believe that the implementation of the second phase of the Common European Asylum System (in July 2015), as well as EU legislation on legal migration, would be sufficient to secure mutual recognition for refugee decisions in the EU. But the existing EU rules only allow refugees and persons with subsidiary protection to move between Member States once they have qualified as long-term residents. To do this, they have to reside legally in a Member State for at least five years, and meet other conditions as well. If they do then move between Member States, their protection status does not in fact travel with them (except if they are moving between the small number of States which have ratified a Council of Europe Convention on this issue)”.

    Regarding detention of migrants, the Greek candidate to the European Commission affirmed that detention beyond 18 months was unacceptable.
