As many of you know I have taken a giant step for me and self published my 1st book. It was a tough decision to make but I knew I had to start somewhere. Self publishing like blogging is a journey. And I decided the only way to thank those who support me in my blogging journey was to make the book available to you.

The book is available free on Kindle from August 27th until August 30th.

The first  chapter is available here to give you a taste of it. As my two readers pictured here are not good at giving reviews, I am asking for reviews on Amazon or Goodreads.

Once again thank you all for encouraging me to keep writing. (I promise I will get better at it as time goes by.)

feathers

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings

the tune without the words and never stops at all.

Emily Dickinson

* For my time out for art I decided to do two feathers in pen and ink, I never use my color pens, so I gave it a try, what do you think?. Been thinking of the desert…where feathers fall, angels tread & gypsies roam…

I took a little holiday vacation with my cousin, I went to three cities in my state, South Padre Island, San Antonio and Austin, a total of 12 days, it was super cold but that did not stop us from traveling and having fun…

What I am looking for… is an immobile movement, something which would be the equivalent of what is called the eloquence of silence

 

Lo que estoy buscando… Es un movimiento inmóvil, algo que sería el equivalente de lo que se llama la elocuencia del silencio

The Flight of the Dragonfly in Front of the Sun, 1968 by Joan Miro

Throughout the time in which I am working on a

canvas I can feel how I am beginning to love it, with that love which is born of slow comprehension.

Al cabo de un tiempo de estar trabajando en un lienzo,

puedo sentir cómo me estoy empezando a enamorar, con el amor que nace de la comprensión lenta.

The Birth of Day, 1968 by Joan Miro

Figures and Dog in front of Sun, 1949 by Joan Miro

I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”

“Trato de aplicar colores como palabras que forman poemas, como notas que forman música.”

Joan Miró, ‘A Star Caresses the Breast of a Negress (Painting Poem)’ 1938

The works must

be conceived with fire

in the soul but

executed with

clinical coolness.

Las obras deben ser

concebidas con fuego

en el alma,

pero ejecutadas

con frialdad clínica
