grafoterapia

Hoy comienzo mi autoterapia grafológica. Este método (que hace un tiempo me fue sugerido por un amigo loco) parte de la base de una profunda relación entre la letra y los rasgos del carácter, y del presupuesto conductista de que los cambios de conducta pueden producir cambios a nivel psíquico. Cambiando pues la conducta observada en la escritura, se piensa que podría llegarse a cambiar otras cosas en una persona. Mario Levrero.

De El discurso vacío (Trilce, 1996; Interzona, 2006), novela autobiográfica en la que el narrador se propone mejorar su caligrafía y, en consecuencia, su personalidad.

Me hizo recordar los correctivos practicados en la Well-Built City de Jeffrey Ford, donde los fisonomistas (gremio de frenólogos-policías-cirujanos) no sólo diagnosticaban patologías en base a la forma de los rostros, sino que las remediaban interviniendo quirurgicamente esos rostros. Claro que lo de Ford es fantasía, Levrero está hablando de su vida.

"Dearest, I feel certain I am going mad again. I feel we can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can't concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don't think two people could have been happier till this terrible disease came. I can't fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can't even write this properly. I can't read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that - everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can't go on spoiling your life any longer. I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been."
