A mulher da pedra


Sabe aquela história que os pais têm mania de contar para passar sabão na gente? Pois é, essa é mais uma delas. Sempre que eu e minha irmã brigávamos, minha avó sempre vinha com uma dessas “historietas”. Hoje vou contar a história da “A mulher da pedra”.[1]

Acho que todos conhecem o romance “Éramos Seis”, de Maira José Dupré, pois bem, em minha casa éramos duas dúzias. Entre viúvas e primas, uma família extensamente feminina e “confabuladora”. De tanto confabular de uns e de outros sempre havia entre nós, irmãs e primas, um arranca rabo diferente, escondido de nossas mães e tias, é claro!

Quando isso acontecia, dava uma dor de ouvido danada. Era um festival de palavras com caveirinhas, cobrinhas e uma porção de características iguaizinhas as de desenhos animados. Eu ouvia todos eles! E confesso, depois dos quinze, repeti-los era uma delícia.

Certo dia, minha avó, que Deus a tenha, pegou minha irmã e minha prima de jeito. E eu, como sempre, que estava só de telespectadora, entrei no rolo. A diferença de idade entre mim, minhas primas e irmãs era escandalosamente grande, sendo assim, não tinha jeito. Eu tive que crescer com aquele bando de adolescentes com crises de mulher. Bom, voltando, vovó chegou e levou todas nós para o quarto e começou a boa e velha ladainha. A história que vou contar é uma delas.

Certo dia, uma mulher, aparentando suas carregadas quatro décadas, estava lavando as roupas de suas patroas no riacho quando em prantos confessou para sua comadre que não agüentava mais tanto desafeto entre as pessoas que mais amava. Todo dia, era uma “brigaiada” danada dentro de casa. Naquelas brigas fervorosas e carregadas de desafetos, sempre um de sua família caía doente. Quando não era ela, era o mais novo. Quando não era o mais novo, era o mais velho. Quando não, até as crias adoeciam!!! Uma semana as galinhas não botavam, na outra era os coelhos que tinham um piriri. Era um verdadeiro “só por Deus”!

Sua comadre, compadecida de seu fardo, parou. Na verdade tudo pareceu ter parado diante de um lamento tão profundo e verdadeiro. As águas daquele pequeno rio pareciam chorar junto com aquela mulher. Não ventava e as folhas secas, que sem pudor algum caíam com vento ou sem ele, não caíam mais. Diante daquelas duas mulheres, uma compadecida com a dor da outra, formava-se uma imagem digna de um quadro. Entre uma rocha e outra, as marcas de sabão construíam desenhos em suas encostas. Era uma cumplicidade digna de uma poesia.

Mas nem tudo na vida é um caso perdido, e a solução veio com um nome: Ynae. Dona Ynae era uma anciã muito respeitada por aquelas bandas. Suas feitas eram bastante conhecidas nas redondezas. Sua fama era grande! Os barões de café da região mandavam vir buscá-la para realizar suas benzeções. Ela fazia parto, fazia “reza brava”, benzia e até curava espinhela caída. Não havia mal que não curasse e bem que não fizesse que seu resultado não fosse reconhecido e divulgado aos quatro cantos das redondezas. Diziam que ela já era uma senhora centenária. Mas não havia, em sua cabeleira, um único fio branco sequer para comprovar tal teoria.

Solução apontada, aquelas mulheres trataram de deixar a vida prosseguir. Secaram seus prantos. Arregaçaram as mangas e foram novamente às labutas da vida. Ensaboando e esfregando os cueiros e lençóis brancos de linho. As folhas voltaram a cair e o sol a pino e quente anunciava a hora de quarar.

De volta para casa, não tardou a chegar logo em seguida a Dona Ynae. Sua comadre mais que depressa já havia relatado para a santa senhora todos os infortúnios que aquela mulher estava passando. Das desgraças que ocorria em sua casa e do desgaste que vinha sofrendo toda a sua família.

Ao entrar naquela casa simples e de poucos pertences, a benzedeira, olhando lentamente ao seu redor, disse: “Deixa, fia, tudo pra trás. Na sua ida, leva contigo somente o que tiver inteiro. Nada pela metade. Nem mesmo aquela pedra que enfeita sua sala. Nada, nadinha. Somente a famia”. Dizendo isso, fechou os olhos e fez uma oração. Lenta e demorada. Com sua expressão de dor, chorou baixinho e pediu, talvez aos seus santos da terra mãe, talvez ao Pai. Quem sabe?

Aceitou com muito carinho um copo d’água, num copo de barro faltando uma beira, e com olhar de reprovação olhou para o objeto, como quem diz “esse também fica”. Agradeceu. E logo em seguida aconselhou: “Bota fia, bota todo o seu povo numa carroça, segui caminho e não olhi pro que tá deixano”. Sem ponderar essa velha senhora repetiu enfática: “E num leva de jeito nenhum aquela pedra”.

Após as orações, a família seguiu em paz durante alguns dias. Enquanto isso, todos da casa se preparavam para partida. Entre os preparativos para o recomeço estava a seleção do que iria ser levado: quase nada. Há muito aquela família vivia em pé de guerra. A cada briga era uma louça, um artigo de luxo, perdia uma alça ou lascava uma pintura. A cada pontapé, quebrava-se uma cadeira ou uma mesa. A cada discussão, uma panela caía no chão e amassava. Eram, realmente, poucos os objetos que seriam transportados. Mas o maior de todos, aquela mulher havia, à tempo, salvo: a sua família.

No dia da partida, a carroça, já pronta, com poucos pertences e muita esperança, a jovem senhora não seguiu o último conselho e sem pestanejar olhou para trás. Gelada e sem palavras, ela não conseguia crer no que via. Segundo os antigos, a imagem é da ruína humana, da miséria, da desgraça e degradação. Mas a imagem que ela via era de uma velha senhora, maltrapilha, suja, toda mafonhanhada, carregando uma pedra, correndo e gritando: “Espera eu, espera eu”!

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

The organization delivers a single [url=http://cungmuachungnhom.com/thoi-trang.html]voucher gia re[/url] for every single operating working day in every single and every single of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon operates as an assurance offer making use of ThePoint's platform: if a certain quantity of people signal up for the source, then the deal will get to be obtainable to all if the predetermined minimum is not fulfilled, no 1 certain will get the deal that operating working day. This decreases risk for merchants, who can handle the discount codes as sum reductions as appropriately as income marketing and advertising tools. Groupon tends to make cash flow by striving to keep about fifty % the income the consumer pays for the coupon.

For instance, an $eighty massage could be acquired by the customer for $forty by way of Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would crack up the $40. That is, the retailer gives a therapeutic therapeutic massage valued at $eighty and gets close to $twenty from Groupon for it (beneath a 50%/fifty% split up). Or, if $240 price of house portray firms is obtained by the customer for $50 through Groupon, then the company receives $20 5 and Groupon keeps $twenty five. The customer gets the therapeutic massage, or the home painting assist, in these examples, from the retailer for which they to begin with paid $forty (or $fifty) to Groupon. There are specified corporations to which Groupon at first did not supply its firms, which contains taking pictures ranges and strip golfing tools even so, capturing ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

Not like classified promoting and marketing and advertising, the merchant does not shell out any upfront price to get part: Groupon collects personalized info from ready customers and then contacts only these consumers, mostly by each working day e mail, who could possibly potentially be fascinated in a distinct remedy or providers.

Groupon employs a massive selection of copywriters who draft descriptions for the gives showcased by e-mail and on the website. Groupon's advertising and marketing textual content for the 'deals' has been observed as a contributing aspect to the acceptance of the site, featuring a special combine of complete fact-analyzing and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's market becoming primarily composed of female consumers, the offers are typically concentrated on the nicely getting, health and elegance marketplaces.

There are achievable troubles with the firm layout. For illustration, a effective offer could rapidly swamp a tiny company with as properly a lot of clients, risking a likelihood that shoppers will be dissatisfied, or that there won't be satisfactory remedy to satisfy up with the require. Gap, a enormous attire retailer, was able to deal with 445,000 coupon codes in a nationwide offer (in spite of the reality that it well-informed server issues at one placement), but a smaller business could change into all of a sudden flooded with consumers. One coffee retailer in Portland, Oregon struggled with an increase in customers for a handful of months, when it bought in close proximity to to 1,000 Groupons on the one working day it was presented, in accordance to a one report. In response to equal problems, Groupon officers situation that 'deal' subscriptions want to be capped in development to a realistic quantity.
