Cuando se murió Michael Jackson sentí exactamente lo mismo que cuando me enteré de la muerte de Bruce Lee. Son momentos gemelos para mí. La muerte de Bruce Lee me encontró justo al cierre de mi segunda peregrinación por India. Escribí unas palabras sobre mi amistad con Lee en el avión a Los Angeles para asistir a su funeral (necesitaba estar ahí) pero no me atreví a leerlas cuando llegó mi turno de hablar. Ahora siento que esas muertes, la de Lee, la de Jackson, son los eventos que más me han conectado con la especie humana. Después de tantos años acá, encontré el vínculo que buscaba en la tristeza compartida por la muerte de personas que jamás conocí.

The Woman

To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer—excellent for drawing the veil from men’s motives and actions. But for the trained reasoner to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his. And yet there was but one woman to him, and that woman was the late Irene Adler, of dubious and questionable memory.
