Epiphany


Por fin...
Este in crescendo de trabajo-trabajo acaba aquí.
Cuando en estas fechas estás en una tienda eres testigo de horas y horas de consumismo voraz, de desesperación, de decepción, de alivio y de paciencia.
La víspera de Reyes se lleva consigo toda la energía que me quedaba.
Ahora respiraré, descansaré, curaré mi hombro malherido, me sentaré con mis rotuladores y dejaré que las imágenes invadan mi mente y borren el cansancio.
Y volveré a mi rutina de escribir casi a diario...


At last...
This work-work in crescendo ends here.
When you happen to work at a store in days like these, you witness endless hours of fierce consumerism, desperation, dissapointment, relief and patience.
The day before Epiphany (the most celebrated day in Spain, even more than Christmas Day) I spend every bit of energy I've had left.
Now I'll breathe, I'll rest, I'll heal my hurt shoulder, I'll sit with my black pens and I'll let the images filling my mind replace the tiredness.
And I'll get back to my almost daily posting routine...


Today's music:
Billy Holiday

I avoid stores on those days... and most days.

Enjoy your black pens, Esti, you deserve it. I know the rest of us will enjoy the result!

In Ireland the Epiphany is called Nollaig na mBan, which means Women's Christmas. I usually celebrate it either with friends or a special family meal.

Blessings to you and your family today Esti. And a wonderful 2009 to you. C x

"Now I'll breathe, I'll rest, I'll heal my hurt shoulder, I'll sit with my black pens and I'll let the images filling my mind replace the tiredness." ...sounds perfect to me. xo
