Horacio Quiroga / El hijo (A short story in Spanish)
It is a powerful summer day in Misiones with all the sun, heat, and calm the season can offer. The wilderness, fully open, feels satisfied with itself.
Like the sun, the heat, and the calm of the environment, the father also opens his heart to the wilderness.
"Be careful, chiquito," he says to his son, abbreviating in this sentence all his observations, which his son understands perfectly.
