Putting the past aside, and moving forward in the name of those around you. An interview with Alex Cano.
In his book 100 Years Of Solitude, Gabriel Garcia Marquez writes about the town of Macondo, and it’s fight with “the quicksand of forgetfulness”, as its population is stricken with an unexplainable plague them begin to forget everything they ever knew. Some have seen this theme in the book as Marquez’s nod to Colombian’s ability (and perhaps willingness) to forget their past in order to move forward. A defense mechanism of sorts. Even if that was not his intention, like much of Marquez's work in fiction, Macondo's plague has an eerily similar counterpart in the real world, in a town that has actively been trying to forget parts of its past for decades.
