One year ago this week, Julio gave me a little tour of Goya's works at the Prado, which is just up the street from the Atocha train station. Three paintings in particular disturbed me: El Perro Semihundido o El Perro en la Arena, Los Fusilamientos del 3 de Mayo, & Saturno Devorando a su Hijo. All of which have returned to me with haunting significance today. I wish I could paste those works here instead of these words.
