I live on a very loud and busy street. We have a window facing the west so we can watch beautiful sunsets and at nights I can hear peacocks calling out from a neighbour’s house.
The picture on the left is the bottom part of the body and the faces are 2 of my favourites, I finally made up my mind and will use the one on top for this doll.
¿En qué te ofendo, cuando sólo intento
poner bellezas en mi entendimiento
To put things of beauty in my understanding
And not my understanding in things of beauty?
I need to see it, touch it, kiss it, and to understand it and put it into objects or words.
I love words, I need words to think and I would like to learn so many more and their meaning to be able to think and understand so much more than I do, to name all my feelings, so that I can say so much more and do it in a beautiful way.
To live a better life, a much fuller and meaningful one.
I draw most of my deepest feelings from my childhood, it was a time when I could feel very intensely. I had many hopes and dreams, the same ones I have today, I wanted to learn pretty much the same things, languages, music, poetry.
I wish Sor Juana and I had known each other during our childhood, I keep thinking she would have been an extraordinary playmate because children can dream and create freely. The days seemed so much longer when I was a little girl, and the sky was darker at nights and the stars so much brighter.
I hope for really long and fruitful days, like those of my childhood.
I have a collection of dreams in my mind that I dreamed when I was a child (while asleep) and I would like to put them into handmade books, I also have poems that need to be worked on. I don’t know the process, I have so many unfinished projects wanting to take shape and surface.
I liked the strings and the rythm felt exotic, like México must have been in the 16th and 17th century, a bit spicy, a bit classical, a blend of so many different expressions
