fabric heart brooch. ziazia.

I don’t really celebrate valentine’s day because it’s a lot of pressure to buy or make a gift or whatever to just celebrate one single day, it’s not me. Although i do want to say happy love day to everyone because love is a beautiful feeling, not just like the partner/love-of-your-life kind, but the love for everything and everyone and just love as it is, an abstract, fuel your body, chemical, crazy emotions, pure joy and not so happy sometimes emotion, it’s such a complex feeling, it’s worth remembering and celebrating often.
So, happy day!

This year I proposed to reacquaint myself with reading.
My years in college led me to read, read & read more books, essays, and such readings all somehow related to my education and training as a visual artist. All those hours spent with academia reading took me away from reading just for pleasure.
As a teenager, I discovered reading as an escape from all that I wanted to avoid, from pain, sadness, shyness, teenager stuff hehe. The cool thing is that I discovered the world of all others like me, the world of many authors, traveled with them, I learned, grew and expanded my vision. I loved and devoured books in days.
My cousin told me last year {or maybe two years ago} he set himself the goal of reading a book a week, each week of the year and he’s been keeping that goal ever since. That encouraged me to return to my old habits.
I am excited, it’s one of my new year resolutions. So far i’ve been doing pretty well, to my surprise it wasn’t so hard a habit to get back in. I read one book a week and I find myself thinking about what I wanted to read so many books this year and share. I even joined a book club. We’re on our second book. Fun.

Any book recommendations?

Este año me propuse reencontrarme con la lectura.
Mis años en la universidad me llevaron a leer, leer y leer libros, ensayos, lecturas de todo tipo relacionadas de alguna forma con mi educación y formación como artista visual/plástico. Todas estas horas dedicadas a lecturas de la academia me alejó mucho del mero hecho de leer por leer.
De adolecente, descubrí la lectura como una forma de escape de todo aquello que quería evadir, del dolor, la tristeza, mi timidez, esas cosas de adolecente, pues jeje. Lo bueno de todo esto es que descubrí el mundo de muchas otras personas similares a mi, de autores, viajé con ellos, aprendí, crecí y amplié mi panorama, mi visión del mi alrededor. Me encantaba y devoraba libros en días.
Mi primo-hermano me platicó el año pasado {o talvez hace dos años} que cada año se quería poner la meta de leer un libro por semana, por lo menos y la ha mantenido desde entonces. Eso me alentó a regresar a mis viejos hábitos.
Me emociona mucho. Voy bien al corriente con las lecturas semanales, si he leído uno por semana y me encuentro pensando en qué tantos libros más quisiera leer este año y compartir. Hasta me uní a un club de lectura en el cual vamos en el segundo libro. Es divertido.

¿Alguna recomendación para leer?

Monday, November 12th, 2012

I went to diner a few night ago with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday and i remembered i had a few photos that i shot with film i hadn’t shared of one summer’s day we got together and grilled some yummy food. A season late but i’ll share them anyway because i miss those gathering in the summer. We’re actually planing one {and more, hopefully} soon.

Hace unos días fui a cenar con un grupo de amigos para celebrar un cumpleaños y recordé que tenía unas fotos sin compartir de una parrillada que hicimos un día este verano. Una temporada tarde pero las comparto de todas formas… extraño un poco esas reuniones de verano. Lo bueno es que estamos planeando una pronto!

We’re still celebrating the little one. Maybe not so little anymore, little-big one?.
I know it’s a cliché but i do still remember the day he was born as it had happened a few months ago. I remember all the details of that day, each hour i think back of what i was doing or where i was on that day. It went by so fast and we didn’t expect it to be as smooth as it was. I am so grateful for that and for every single day since that day. Ups and downs, it’s all part of this and it’s worth it. Ok, cliché over. Hahaha. I’m one of those moms that says “time goes by so fast… remember when..”. Guilty.

Today, we’re going to lunch to a turkish restaurant that the little picked and then ulises and me are taking the rest of the day off from work to enjoy the day, maybe the beach again or a park or a long walk. I’m hoping a long walk. Hope you have a wonderful monday.

it is now empty. but full of memories.

now it's empty...

it’s empty. his home. oh i miss having that little fellow with me, swimming all over his home, hiding at night in his cave, making like he’s a plant all day, staying so still i had to look closer to spot him and swimming to the corner where he knew we always place his food. i know he was a fish and the contact we had with him was so different than with other fellow animals but it doesn’t make it any less special and profound. it broke my heart to see him ill and i’m still sad not to have him with us.
it’s hard letting go.
and that same week david bowie {fish} passed, my mother’s dog also passed away, her name was loba {female wolf in spanish}, so we were extra sad.
i don’t know how to end this with a positive note. i guess not everything has to be like that. i don’t know. i am grateful for what we have and the healthy little doggie that is now part of our family, mika, i’ll share about her soon.

está vacía. su casa. oh, cómo extraño tener a ese compañerito conmigo, nadar por todo su hogar, escondido de noche en su cueva, haciendo como si fuera una planta durante todo el día, quedándose tan quieto que tenía que fijarme muy bien para encontrarlo y nadar hasta la esquina donde sabía que siempre le poníamos su alimento. Sé que era un pez y el contacto que tuvimos con él fue tan diferente que el que se tiene con otros compañeros animales, pero no por eso es menos especial y profundo. se me rompió el corazón al verlo enfermo y todavía estoy triste no tenerlo con nosotros.
es difícil dejar ir.
y en la misma semana david bowie {pez} se fué, la perrita de mi madre también falleció, su nombre era loba, así que estabamos extra triste.
no sé cómo terminar esto con una nota positiva. supongo que no todo tiene que ser así. No se. estoy muy agradecida por lo que tenemos y la perrita sana que ahora es parte de nuestra familia, mika, voy a compartir acerca de ella pronto.

rest my david bowie fish.

A few weeks ago I went to see a few friends play a show and I took some b/w photos that night. Yesterday, Pablo of Late Nite Howl told me he had used one of those photos I took of him on his site!! Check it out:

late night howl site

Pretty cool, huh? I do think so.
If you’re interested in listening to his music, his first EP was released yesteday and you can get it through itunes here. It’s folk, it’s moody and so beautiful.

Hace unas semanas fui a ver a unos amigos tocar y [como no falta] tomé unas fotos con el rollo blanco y negro que traía. Ayer, Pablo de Late Nite Howl me avisó que utilizó una de las fotos que le mandé en su sitio!! Es esa de arriba. Qué suave, no? A mi si me parece :).
Si quieres encuchar algo de su música, su primer EP salió ayer y lo pueden conseguir por itunes.

happy birthday, mom.
