DEAR SAPHO - A legacy of lesbian love letters from various centuries (No1)

From the book DEAR SAPHO - A legacy of lesbian love letters 
by Kay Turner, Thames and Hudson 1996

''late April 1852''

So sweet and still, and Thee, Oh Susie, what need I more, to make my heaven whole?
  Sweet Hour, blessed Hour, to carry me to you, and to bring you back to me, long enough to snatch one kiss, and whisper Good bye, again.
  I have thought of it all day, Susie, and I fear of but little else, and when i was gone to meeting it filled my mind so full, I could not find a chink to put the worthy pastor; when he said ''Our Heavenly Father,'' I said ''Oh Darling Sue''; when he read the 100th Psalm, I kept saying your precious letter all over to myself, and Susie, when they sang - it would have made you laugh to hear one little voice, piping to the departed.  I made up words and kept singing how I loved you, and had gone, while all the rest of the choir were singing Hallelujahs.  I presume nobody heard me, because I sang so small but it was a kind of comfort to think I might put them out, singing of you.  I a'nt there this afternoon, tho', because I am here, writing a little letter to my dear Sue, and I am very happy.  I think of ten weeks - Dear One, and I think of love, and you, and my heart grows full and warm, and my breath stands still.  The sun does'nt shine at all, but I can feel a sunshine stealing into my soul and making it all summer, and every thorn, a rose.  And I pray that such summer's sun shine on my Absent One, and cause her bird to sing!
  You have been happy, Susie, and now are sad - and the whole world seems lone; but it wont be so always, ''some days must be dark and breary''!  you wont cry any more, will you, Susie, for my father will be your father, and my home will be your home, and where you go, I will go, and we will lie side by side in the kirkyard.....

- EMILY to SUSAN.  The American poet, Emily Dickinson, wrote many passionate letters to Susan Gilbert in the mid-19th century.  Gilbert eventually married Dickinson's brother.  That even seems to have cooled Susan's ardor, but Emily retained devoted for decades.  This excerpt is reprinted by permission of the publishers from The Letters of Emily Dickinson, edited by Thomas H.

Encuentro digital con Jesus Quintero en el CanalSur.es 11/10/2010

Hoy 11/10/2010,  ha visitado los Encuentros Digitales de Canalsur.es, el periodista Jesús Quintero, que estrena su programa El Gatopardo en CanalSur Televisión. Quintero nos ha develado las novedades de su nueva apuesta televisiva tras el éxito durante varias temporadas de Ratones Coloraos.

Si no os importa voy a hacerme yo la primera pregunta. ¿Cuál es el estado actual de la televisión? Para empezar estas son las preguntas que me hago constantemente sobre el periodismo y la televisión. ¿Debe la tv mostrar lo peor de nosotros, lo mas ruín, lo más grosero? ¿tenemos la tv que nos merecemos? ¿existe la basura en tv porque la basura está en la sociedad? ¿el público consume mayoritariamente la telebasura porque le gusta? ¿debe un profesional que ama su trabajo y que aspira a hacerlo de la mejor manera posible, con la máxima calidad, con el máximo respeto, con arte incluso, debe bajar el listón para contentar a una audiencia frívola y distraída? ¿debemos aceptar que todo vale por el negocio, por la audiencia, que no hay límites, que se puede hacer todo por denigrante que sea, si eso nos sube un par de puntos el share? Respondo, yo creo que no y lucho en mi barricada para que la marea no me arrastre, porque no me gusta lo que veo, lo que están haciendo con mi profesión , ni con este medio tan maravilloso que es la TV. No creo que el cli8ente tenga siempre la razón, ni que la audiencia tenga que tener la última palabra. La última palabra de lo que yo hago la tengo yo y no estoy dispuesto a someterme a ninguna dictadura, ni siquiera  a la de la audiencia, que no tiene que ser mejor a otras dictaduras. Para mi Lope de Vega se traicionaba asimismo cuando dijo: “Si el vulgo es necio es justo hablarle en necio para darle gusto”.
