Words



Hola. Ultimamente no tengo mucho tiempo para las palabras. Mientras que multitud de imágenes se han ido agolpando en mi cabeza y en mis archivos, no he encontrado tiempo de verbalizar todas las sensaciones, la excitación de cada dibujo nuevo, de cada preparativo y proyecto, la satisfacción de las serigrafías, el cansancio del trabajo o del maratón de la vida a diario.

Ayer tuve unas horas libres, ociosas, y para mi sorpresa no las ocupé apenas con nada. Me senté a ver los minutos pasar. Y por la noche, me puse a leer. Nada de libros de arte, una novela. Creo que era el momento perfecto para volver a llenarme con palabras. Por un día.

A veces me siento así.

Hello. I haven't given much time to words lately. While dozens of images were filling up my mind and files, I haven't found the time to verbalize all the feelings, the excitement of every new drawing, every comission or new project, the screenprinting satisfaction, the tiredness of works or the marathon coming from the daily life.

Yesterday I happened to enjoy some free time and to my surprise, I didn't do anything. I sit and saw the minutes pass. And last night, I got to read. No art books, but a novel. I think it was about time to go back to words. For a day.

Sometimes I feel like this.

un día al ralentí en todo un año. uumm, qué tal probar más?
¿no estarás cargando motores para algo nuevo?

One day a year Esti runs at idle speed. You should try it more often.
Are you charging batteries for a new project?

Can't wait to see more of what you do with the screenprints, the possibilities!!! and looking forward to seeing your blocks someday, I am sure they are lovely.

I can relate to the marathon coming from the daily life, and the need of not verbalizing everything. Sounded like you needed to do nothing, just relaxing is so nescessary...

I love this photo sometime photos don't need words they speak on their own.

This is so interesting because I have the opposite - I am so involved with words all the time that sometimes I just need to sit and not look at a words in a book or on a screen. Just to appreciate visuals without words ...
