Shedding an easy tear or two


Hoy quiero romper una lanza en favor de la sensibilidad.
A favor de la lágrima fácil, del drama y de la sobreactuación.
Me gusta esa facilidad para llorar, que lejos de la tristeza, tan sólo es un reflejo de la empatía.
La lágrima fácil.


Today I want to stick up for sensitivity.
For the easy tears, drama and overacting.
I like that easiness for crying, that far from sadness, is just a reflection of sympathy.
That easy tear.

... like Karin's phrase, i have heard it (crying) called "water works" as if you are connected to the pipes of the city water--but it also suggests that you can turn it on and off any time, as if acting to get your way!

(which is not the same as really being a sensitive!)

in some cultures, didn't they have professional criers... people who would go behind funerals and cry loudly?

mansuetude, in Spain they were called "plañideras".
