Description: "When 1 feel anguished, 1 sing ... If 1 want to whisper, 1 sing ... If 1 love, my eroticism makes me sing ..." This and much more, is singing for the author. Through her writing we are carried away by her story; her voice taking the principal role. The text narrates that it was her mother that t w h t her how to sing; that she began winning her father's affection -who died when she was still a young girl- with her singing, thus pleasing her Oedipus. She also tells us that singing has given her, for better or for worse, a place in the world that surrounds her and inside her own world. For her, "singing is being alive", beyond life itself... maybe because the songs speak about human passions, passions that she has made her own and which she lives so intensely that she can never forget them.
"Cuando siento angustia, canto. Si quiero susurrar, canto... Si amo, mi erotismo me hace cantar..." Para la autora esto, y mucho mas es el canto. A lo largo de su escrito nos transporta por su historia, donde el papel principal lo lleva en su voz. En el texto narra que fue la madre quien la enseño a cantar; que comenzó a ganarse el cariño del padre -muerto cuando era aun una niña- a través del canto, viendo así a su Edipo complacido. Asimismo, cuenta como ha sido el canto el que le ha dado un lugar, bueno o malo, dentro e1 mundo que la rodea, dentro de su propio mundo. Para ella "cantar es estar viva", mucho más allá de la vida misma... quizá porque las canciones hablan de las pasiones humanas, pasiones que ella hace suyas y las vive intensamente, para jamás olvidarlas.
