One Hundred Years of Solitude
- Rain has been falling in Macondo for almost five years.
- Fernanda points out the fixations of the Buendia family members: Aureliano Segundo has home repairs; Amaranta has her shroud; José Arcadio has Melquiades’ parchments; and Úrsula has her memories.
- How disgusting was it that Úrsula’s back was paved with leeches!
- I drew a little whale next to the line when Aureliano Segundo remember reading Melquiades’ stories about “flying carpets and whales that fed on entire ships and their crews.” I do miss Moby-Dick.
- Úrsula’s waiting for the rain to stop so she can die. Considerate of her.
- A2’s livestock is dying in the floods.
- Petra Cotes and Fernanda are running out of food.
- Fernanda spends a day ranting. A2’s reaction is to smash posts and dishes, but then he goes out for food.
- Úrsula’s confusing the past and present. Will the gold from the St. Joseph statues ever be found?
- Trying to make a comeback from the destruction of the livestock, Petra Cotes raffles off her last mule.
