RURAL RESISTANCE 2020

 

THE RESISTANCE THEORY AND PRACTICE BY SONIA GÓMEZ. 
In my country, which is a disaster for so many things, we have to be home until 
we don't know when. 
The rules are "pop" strict, rudimentary, not technical at all 
and less technological. My family and I we are living in a village with 
30 inhabitants since September 2019. 
I decided to leave Bacelona since the rents were 1,000€, 
the same amound for salaries. 
We found an isolated village with everything to do, so here we are. 
My idea was not only economic, I wanted to get out of the madding crowd and focus 
on the next project, which had a release date of October 2020. 
But a few weeks ago I decided to postpone the premiere and start investigating 
this global situation. 

Covid-19 has put all the cards on the table, all the worst expectations, 
all the lack of humanity and common sense that the implicit human being 
carried at least since the Industrial Revolution as a consequence of Colonization 
and further and further back. 
Philosopher Peter Sloterdijk says that "we, you, all" have to know our history 
30000 years ago to understand something.
I don't know if I am going to be able to go back that far, but what 
I do know is... the situation will give me wings to: 
IMPROVE THE POOR IMPLICATION I HAD WITH THE EARTH.

I will read, I will plant the garden, 
I will read, I will collect medicinal plants, 
I will read, I will study the native birds, 
I will read, I will milk a goat, 
I will read, I will make cheese, 
I will read, I will a ditch to water the garden, 
I will read, I will follow my mentor Gloria (88 years), 
I will read, I will study the intangible heritage of this region, 
I will read, I will cook nutritious dishes, 
I will read ...
But the best thing of all is that all this that I have written in 
the imperfect future is what I have been doing since I am here. 
So I will continue to do it...
