Aldo

C’è un fi lo conduttore che lega tutte le opere di Aldo Nove, una spiritualità costante e mutevole: la preghiera, a volte sussurrata, a volte atrocemente urlata, che tutto non sia soltanto evidenza e realtà, che ci sia qualcosa, qualcosa di profondo, che ci unisce tutti, nei secoli, per sempre. C’è Woobinda, il tragico Woobinda, e c’è Un bambino piangeva, il lieve e malinconico.
Antonello, piccolo Aldo Nove, passa le estati su un’isola magica, lunghe estati da sogno; perché quell’isola, la Sardegna, lontana e arcaica, magica lo è per davvero. Qui nessuno muore in via defi nitiva e il passato, se si hanno occhi abbastanza attenti per vederlo, fa capolino nel presente. Sull’isola è vissuto anche il piccolo Saltaro, figlio di una stirpe antica, che ha abitato la Sardegna prima dell’arrivo dei Fenici, violenti e ciechi come tutti i colonizzatori. È la paura del presente ad accomunare il piccolo Antonello e Saltaro, in un girotondo a occhi chiusi, mentre le vicende del mondo scorrono inesorabili per entrambi. Ad accompagnare Antonello ci saranno le presenze rassicuranti di nonno Giuseppino e di Giò, numi tutelari perennemente in contatto con la spiritualità che pervade l’isola. Antonello, grazie a loro, sentirà il richiamo di Saltaro e, inconsapevole, percorrerà il lungo pellegrinaggio dalla piccola Viggiù fi no al cuore misterioso della Sardegna. Il viaggio, come di frequente accade, sarà l’occasione per affrontare molte paure, sconfi ggere incertezze e ritrovare ciò che pareva perduto. **Un’ opera fortemente autobiografica, in cui Aldo Nove compie un’ulteriore, certamente non ultima, mutazione: un addio al rimpianto e un giocoso benvenuto al mondo.**

Michele ha la maturità classica, è rimasto sei anni disoccupato e adesso fa «materie plastiche vicino Gornate». Ama soprattutto *Beautiful* , «il porno che vedi tutto», la Juve di Lippi. E andare all’lkea di Cinisello Balsamo.
Il suo ideale è la Svizzera, dove il padre lo portava il sabato a far benzina e a comprare il Toblerone. Poiché, «a trent’anni, è il momento di metter su famiglia», e la sua Marina l’ha tradito, parte per Puerto Plata dove, di sicuro, troverà l’amore. Che è come il gratta e vinci.
Aldo Nove, per rivelarci i segreti inconfessabili del suo protagonista, inventa una lingua corrotta eppure smagliante, in cui il nome di un’amata merendina, di una puttana caraibica, di un attaccante juventino si innervano dolcemente su vaghezze pseudofilosofiche new-age, o sulla trama di un telefilm o di un cartone animato, visti come testi sapienziali, in un continuo esilarante borborigma. A questa voce lo scrittore alterna quelle originali di personaggi incontrati per le strade di Puerto Plata e pezzetti di giornale, in una sorta di struggente e nevrotica polifonia. E la fuga di Michele in un mondo «periferico» e con l’orologio un po’ indietro ma non troppo rispetto all’ltalia, come Puerto Plata, diventa anche il modo piú adatto per far emergere tutto il dolore che c’è dietro l’incantato ma anche straccione Paese dei Balocchi e delle Merci, l’unico luogo, o forse non-luogo, in cui Michele – come tanti che sono stati bambini negli ultimi cinquant’anni – è finora vissuto.

Shipping containers aren’t just for shipping anymore. In Australia, and even here in Canada, they’re being converted into backyard swimming pools. In Edmonton, at least for the moment, they’re being used a bit more conventionally and just being transformed into residential living spaces. “I heard about people building with shipping containers before but I understood, […]

Boys & Girls Club is happy to introduce the most recent graduate of the BGCU Crush Job Mentor Program, Aldo Diaz Aguilar. Agular recently participated in a 10-week course in which he job shadowed many duties at Crush Restaurant. As a motivated young man graduating at age 17 from South Valley High School, Aguilar is looking toward his future career and was very enthusiastic to be a part of this program.  He learned many new skills from Crush staff such as clearing tables, tossing and making pizzas and creating the most beautiful desserts, but his favorite was meeting and serving guests. Aguilar enjoys people and this gave him a great opportunity to greet Crush diners, helping them feel welcomed. The Crush Graduation included friends, family and the Boys and Girls Club joined the celebration. (photo contributed) Crush Restaurant has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club in this valuable 10 week course for several years. The Ukiah Boys & Girls Club invites interested teens to participate in the Crush Mentor program. They will learn the process of building a resume, completing an application for employment and  experience the interview process prior to being accepted into the program. Once accepted, mentees job shadow a variety of Crush employees, learning what it takes to work in a fine dining establishment. These are skills they are able to translate in many ways as they move into jobs of their own.  After the 10 weeks of training, Crush hosts a graduation ceremony and often, participants are asked to join the Crush Restaurant team. Part of the Crush Program requires participants to volunteer at Boys & Girls Club, assisting Club Staff with helping Members in various ways.  Having older youth support elementary school kids has proven to be of great benefit to BGCU Members. Volunteers work alongside Club Staff helping with homework, reading, actively playing sports, gardening and board games. Everyone wins when the Club is visited by these volunteers. For more on Aguilar and the project he completed with Boys & Girls Club, visit their Facebook page. If you are interested in participating in the Crush Mentor Program email Liz at lelmore@ukiahbgc.org.drive for theUkiah Bpys and Girs Club is still on Editor’ note: And don’t forget the UDJ Spring Fund Drive for the Boys and Girls Club is still on.
