I am a bit late today. I hope you are well. Last week my friends and I went to a protest against the new labor and social security reforms. Thousands and thousands people were there. It ended in a clash with the police. 19 capitals protested too. Some photos below:
My friends and I. We work together at the same school.
I am between the two ladies.
I hope those reforms never happen. Otherwise we will spend our life working and retire at almost 70. Neo-liberalism destroys everything. It enslaves people. Although I was born during dictatorship, my father taught me to have wings and to think big. So if I can fight, I will.
I am glad art can help me to overcome my fears. I created the page below for Color Me Positive 2017.
Last week was terribly insane. My furry friend had her second leg amputated. We both suffered because I didn't want her to go through another surgery but it was necessary. She was in pain due to an osteosarcoma. She was discharged last monday after five days of hospitalization. She's well now and today she had her stitches removed. Babi - my furry friend has been teaching me a lot. She has endured pain with immense strenght and resignation. And believe you or not she's now walking on her two legs. Sometimes we see an obstacle and we give up fast. Babi has taught me to be strong and to believe we can everything. She's my heroine. I love her so much. I know I will lose her in the long run but right now she's alive and that is all that matters.

Life does go on, my friends.
Yesterday I had some time so I created a couple of pages for Color Me Positive:
I hope my art can always save me from my limitations as a human being because sometimes I feel my heart is out and that makes me so vulnerable.
“Going green doesn’t start with doing green acts — it starts with a shift in consciousness. This shift allows you to recognize that with every choice you make, you are voting either for or against the kind of world you wish to see. When you assume this as a way of being, your choices become easier. Using a reusable water bottle, recycling and making conscious daily consumer choices are just a few…” ― Ian Somerhalder
