Desesperadamente Procurando Joana

José Risques, prominent jornalist and writer, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his girlfriend. He was 26 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Risques never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious minutes with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Friday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Risques secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described José as a changed man in the last days of his life. "Things were clearer for him," Kansky noted. Ultimately José concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as... destiny.
