Siento que si no cuento esta pequeña historia relacionada a estas fotos, estaría traicionando mi memoria.

I feel that if I don't tell this little story related to these photos, I would be betraying my memory.

Estaba tan cansado que parecía un Zombie, el agotamiento era gigantesco, se notaba en todo mi ser. Al llegar a casa y compartir unos minutos con mi esposa e hijas mientras se arreglaban el cabello, me disponía a seguir mis labores en la computadora con una buena taza de café, la verdad es que el cansancio era insoportable, estaba despierto desde las 4am y mi trabajo de oficina estuvo muy pesado. Terminé a las 2am, me retire a mí habitación y sentía como la cama me abrazaba y calmaba mi colapso.

No tardó mucho, creo que menos de 5 minutos, cuando un grillo empezó su canto de una manera muy fuerte, y el tímpano de mi oído vibraba con cada canto. Traté de ignorarlo, pero en ese proceso pasaron varios minutos hasta convertirse en una hora, ya pasadas las 3am decidí hacer algo con tal situación, me encontraba postrado y debía trabajar al día siguiente. Me levanté de la cama y empecé a buscar al grillo, pero al salir de mi cama éste se callaba, dejaba de cantar, y no podía hallarlo, era muy pequeño, y a pesar de que había buena iluminación yo no lo podía ver, cuando volvía a mi cama y entraba en relajación el amigo grillo volvía con su canto, cada vez con mayor volumen.

I was so tired that I looked like a Zombie, the exhaustion was gigantic, it was noticeable in my whole being. Arriving home and sharing a few minutes with my wife and daughters while they were fixing their hair, I was ready to continue my work at the computer with a good cup of coffee, the truth is that the fatigue was unbearable, I was awake since 4am and my office work was very heavy. I finished at 2am, I retired to my room and felt how the bed embraced me and calmed my collapse.

It did not take long, I think less than 5 minutes, when a cricket began to sing very loudly, and the eardrum of my ear vibrated with each song. I tried to ignore it, but in that process several minutes passed until it became an hour, and after 3am I decided to do something about the situation, I was bedridden and had to work the next day. I got out of bed and started to look for the cricket, but when I got out of my bed it was quiet, it stopped singing, and I could not find it, it was very small, and although there was good lighting I could not see it, when I returned to my bed and went into relaxation the cricket friend returned with its song, each time with greater volume.

La situación continuaba hasta volverse insoportable; me dije, esto no se va a quedar así, opté entonces por quedarme lejos de la cama y sentarme cerca de donde sospechaba que venía el ruido, para asegurarme que se encontrara allí el grillo, ya sabiendo que al alejarme de la cama dejaba de cantar. Me mantuve así, en silencio total, sentado en el suelo por varios minutos, con tanto sueño y pesadez que inconscientemente me hallaba cabeceando hasta casi caer, hasta que para mi sorpresa, finalmente pasó, nuevamente cantó, e inmediatamente lo ubiqué. ¡Oh, Dios mío, al fin lo ubiqué!, estaba jugando con el cabello de una de mis hijas o de mi esposa.

Para mi asombro, era realmente muy pequeño, y aunque me acerqué muchísimo para verlo, él no se asustó pero sí dejó de cantar, me pareció simpático y ...quiero pensar que el cansancio me llevó a hablarle y decirle que me dejara dormir, tomé mi cámara y le dije "no te haré nada pero te tomaré unas fotos, y si te lo preguntas, es porque me pareces simpático; tu tranquilo allí, y posa con naturalidad", y él se mantuvo en silencio, no se movió en lo más mínimo, permitiéndome hacerle varias capturas.

Al terminar me despedí de él pidiéndole amablemente que por favor me dejara descansar, que lo necesitaba, que al otro día cuando me fuera al trabajo cantara todo lo que quisiera; Se lo dije, en serio lo hice. Sé que no me van a creer esto, pero fue así: el amigo grillo dejó de cantar, y finalmente pude dormir en paz y tranquilidad. Al salir el sol me sentía mejor, ya recuperado un poco y me fui a mi trabajo, al regresar muy entrada la tarde, apenas entré a mi casa, mi esposa e hijas me dicen, "hay un grillo que apenas te fuiste al trabajo, no ha parado de cantar". Claro que me sorprendí, aún más por la complicidad entre el amigo grillo y yo, una especie de convenio. Así estuvimos unos tres días hasta que no volví a escuchar de él, donde quiera que estés amigo grillo, solo espero que tengas o hayas tenido una buena vida.

The situation continued until it became unbearable; I said to myself, this is not going to stay like this, so I decided to stay away from the bed and sit near where I suspected the noise was coming from, to make sure the cricket was there, knowing that when I moved away from the bed it would stop singing. I stayed that way, in total silence, sitting on the floor for several minutes, so sleepy and heavy that I was unconsciously nodding my head until I almost fell over, until to my surprise, it finally passed, sang again, and I immediately located it. Oh my God, I finally located it, it was playing with the hair of one of my daughters or my wife.

To my amazement, he was really very small, and although I got very close to see him, he didn't get scared but he did stop singing, he seemed nice to me and ...I want to think that tiredness led me to talk to him and tell him to let me sleep, I took my camera and told him "I won't do anything to you but I will take some pictures, and if you wonder, it is because I find you nice; your quiet there, and pose naturally", and he kept silent, he didn't move in the least, allowing me to take several pictures of him.

When I finished I said goodbye to him asking him kindly to please let me rest, that I needed it, that the next day when I went to work I could sing as much as I wanted; I told him, I really did. I know you are not going to believe this, but it was like this: the cricket friend stopped singing, and finally I could sleep in peace and quiet. When the sun came up I felt better, already recovered a little and I went to work, when I returned very late in the afternoon, as soon as I entered my house, my wife and daughters told me, "there is a cricket that as soon as you left for work, he has not stopped singing". Of course I was surprised, even more because of the complicity between me and my cricket friend, a kind of agreement. We stayed that way for about three days until I never heard from him again. Wherever you are, my cricket friend, I only hope you have or have had a good life.
