This comment of Exupéry, reminds me of the youngest writer-poet of my home place, the State of Veracruz. The sir Ramón Rodríguez is, because he is not dead yet, an amazing poet of amusing original unique writing style and I was in a ceremony that was actually a homage that was being given to him because of a long extensive wide career, a long career of over 10 books published in an interval of over 15 years. This made me thought of him like a belated writers who have no written nothing for over 10 years, just like José Saramago. Saramago was a belated writer because he wrote most of his best bibliography after a period of over 20 years since he wrote his first novel. Mr Rogríguez was exactly just like because there had been periods over 10 years where he did not published a thing that and even though of it, he has now became a very famous writer, only between his ¿15? most devoted loyal readers and for a close circle of friends from the Literature and Writing Faculty of the Universidad Veracruzana.
The way he was given tribute and homage was a compilation of all his bibliography, signed by Mr Rodríguez himself. This makes those examples become priceless and endlessly eternal an beautiful because there is nothing much more terrific than having a book written by one’s favourite author and signed by that author him/herself.
Mr Rodríguez even read some poems written by him and it was an indescribable joy to listen for many reasons. One, because there was some verses that were hilarious and funny, so that they made the audience laughed. Second, his voice was at some point funny and strange since he is a little too old and so his voice was like nasal and because of his bad-state teeth. And the main was that his rhetorical figures were really original. The main he used was symbols and other symbolisms, such as Mexican myths and other local legends. Some landmarks from the city, where the conference was given.
They mention that Mr Rodriguez has a small but very close loyal devote readers and friends of him. The opportunity of talking, asking and making comments was given so I could not let it go. I took the microphone and I asked to Mr Rodriguez whether we would see a posthumous book of memories, poems or things like that, just like Wisława Symborska’s posthumous poetry book, which was rescued a small time after she died in 2012, on February. Some people thought that I was killing him with my question and that fact, yet Mr Rodriguez himself laughed because he understood what I wanted to say so he said he would probably-likely write a book of memories so we would see it sooner or later, a small time previously, before he becomes immortal. After I talked, a lot of people get bravery and they made comments as well, such as the rector, Mr Rodriguez’s granddaughters and more loyal devote close readers of him. After that I went to talk to him and I have a long deep amusing pleasant and philosophical talk about literature in general and some remarkable stilts and mainstays of literature, such as Paz, Szymborska, English and British writer and immortality by books with him. He said he loves Szymborska’s poetry and some facts about her. I could write more but fortunately I have a limit.

When I think about writing many ideas come in my mind when I simply have the idea of publishing a book. I don’t feel nervous, whether I have or not some readers. I would actually concern about having at least one reader, an honest reader who tells me his or her opinion so my books don’t be consid
