The father, who never fishes had it as distraction, did not give satisfactions of its intention. Finally, one day, simply was said farewell to all, without expressing any feeling, entered in its canoe and left. The DEPARTURE the surprising one is that the departure did not occur in fact, the man left, but it was not even so of time, was motionless in the way it river. The conviviality in society left, abandoned the solidity of its daily it was placed the edge of its proper life. It is not gotten loose of the past, but also it does not advance for the stranger. But it contemplates, at a distance, the place that occupied until then. Its search was not for the new, was not of its interest to tame new horizontes, therefore it kept the firm look in the concrete, as it was tried to analyze it under another angle.
