"Soy mujer. Y un entrañable calor me abriga cuando el mundo me golpea. Es el calor de las otras mujeres, de aquellas que no conocí, pero que forjaron un suelo común, de aquellas que amé aunque no me amaron, de aquellas que hicieron de la vida este rincón sensible luchador, de piel suave y tierno corazón guerrero." A. Pizarnik.
No pude estar pero estuve. Estuve en todas y cada una de vosotras. Porque para hacer la revolución feminista solo necesitas a tus amigas 💜💪👭 #womensmarch#8Mdiadelamujer#HuelgaFeminista8M#women#empowerment

LIFE OF AN ARTIST
Last weeks were very intense with almost no time for working in my own studio. But today I had some hours of my creative freedom.
Oh how happy I was. And how tired too.

IT’S MADRID only three weeks have passed since I moved into my rooftop flat in Madrid’s Arts and Letters Neighborhood, and I’m now a veteran of four protest marches...sitting in my rooftop aerie, with raindrops spitting down on my skylight, cozy with Cafe con Leche and my reading, a distant noise begins to swell outside my solid 1930’s stone walls....low and guttural at first, then interruptions of high pitched whistles followed by a beating drum...repeat, pause, repeat....I look out the misty window, over my window box of wilted cyclamens, but I can see nothing of the cavernous airspace down to the street...after 20 minutes, the chanting and rhythm of the the drumbeat fades as the crowd moves onto who knows where....my first encountered protest was a small group of civil servants gathered outside the entrance of the local Neighborhood Government offices, certainly protesting their meager paycheck or exceptionally long work hours....9-12, two coffee breaks and a smoke, followed by 2.5 hours for lunch, then maybe a low key two hours of paper shuffling...another time en route to my daily 8 miles looping around El Retiro Parque, I encountered a group of banner waving Venezuelans protesting the terrible Maduro led Reign of Terror and Desperation in that once beautiful Country....even with such a Sad and Heartfelt mission, the Venezuelan Girls were in full makeup and the boys were in Skinny Jeans and Leather Bomber Jackets, all looking like a Photo shoot for Teen Vogue with their Venezuelan flags waving above their lithe Latin bodies...the most awesome protest march of my new residency was undoubtedly the Day of the Woman rallies held across the City culminating in a mass march down the Gran Via and the Puerta del Sol....every girl, woman and Abuela wore some bit of purple, many having dyed their hair in the color of Protest...that day of protest saw some angry shouting, but was mostly a love fest of laughter, locked arms and life...it’s been a wonderful introduction to Spanish culture ...Viva España... keep the Protests coming, it’s Street Art at its best#madrid#ilovespain#womensmarch#shoutout
