Viver para contar: mais sobre o Guaxinim

37

Viver para contar é o título do romance do escritor Gabriel Garcia Marques que nos encanta a cada obra trazida a público.  Na abertura deste romance, o escritor colombiano grafou: “A vida não é a que a gente viveu, e sim a que a gente recorda, e como recorda para contá-la”.

Nós do baú de Macau ao criarmos este sítio sobre as coisas de Macau, sempre buscamos contar as histórias de Macau. Não ignoramos a história baseada nos documentos, em grande parte oficiais, mas que também tem o seu valor, entretanto, nossa pretensão é a história que cada macauense se propõe a contar.   Hoje, temos a satisfação de contar uma dessas histórias. É a história de Jeová, um menino que criava garças brancas do bico amarelo no Guaxinim.   Delicie-se com a narrativa baseada nas lembranças de Jeová.

 

Avoadores no varal

Eu me recordo bem. São lembranças da minha infância. Eu tinha 6 anos e morava no Guaxinim, na ilha do Guaxinim, no grande e luminoso delta do rio Assu, bem pertinho de Macau. A minha casa era de taipa e existia uma cisterna na frente da minha casa. A cisterna era um grande caixote quadrado, de madeira. Os barcos aguadeiros vinham da Ponta de Pedra, trazendo as águas das dunas de Barreiras e Diogo Lopes e ancoravam ali e despejavam a água na canaleta de madeira até encher a cisterna. Dalí, em latas de querosene, no calão que engrossava o ombro, ela era levada para as outras casas: água de beber, água das boas.

Meu avô era Luiz de França, mas o conheciam também por Luiz Batista. Ele atendia pelos dois nomes, não fazia questão. Ele era um homem inteligente e construía barcos que enfrentavam aqueles mares bravios. Toda a família pescava nos barcos que meu avô construía. E navegavam até a água do avoador, as águas profundas dos mares escuros do avoador e os peixes vinham aos montões. O barco na linha dágua carregado de avoadores. Depois, era salgar e estender nas esteiras, os varais de palha de coqueiro.Tinha muito coqueiro no Guaxinim. Era muito avoador no varal.

Tresmalho no litoral de Macau

Navegavam também até os cabeços e pescavam agulhas, agulhões e sardinhas. Todos iam para a salmoura, ficavam um dia no barril da salmoura e depois mais um dia estendidos nos varais. As sardinhas viravam estrelinhas de tanto que brilhavam no sol.

Amanhã eu conto mais, pois tenho muito para contar sobre o Guaxinim. Teve morte em pastoril, as minhas garças brancas do bico amarelo e o trabalho nas salinas das Umburanas e muitas outras histórias…

  10. What’s making things even more interesting is that the power of communication does not stop at brand discovery. On the flip side, the social era is building public forums for criticism and holding companies more accountable for their claims than ever before. Because consumers can sense an inauthentic brand a mile a way, companies must live by their core principles and go above and beyond expectations for sound business practices.
