Stroller license

Stroller driving license. 
Lucky to enjoy it, in the future she could be driving 
in very frigid locations.
Practice, practice, practice.

Love and marriage, love and marriage
Go together like a horse and carriage

You can't have one without the other

Empty zoo

In the morning when everything is quiet,
 I miss the zoo-state-of-mind...But also...

In the morning when the moon is at it's rest
You will see me at the time I love the best
Watching rainbows play on sunlight
Pools of water ice cream cold nights in the morning
Can't you imagine it?
It's the morning of my life, yeah
Nina Simone

Summer collage

An "exercise" collage I made to teach Catalan to my kids...Ha!
No way. They speak in English. 
They teach me English - with no need of collages...

Today is my birthday.
At thirty something (so many) 
I should be less emotional 
about the birthday thing. 
Being a so expected day
 for so many years
it has left an inevitable indented care 
for June the 19th.
It stills feels a special reminder day,
bizarre things accomplished, 
some dreams on the pocket.

An afternoon playing trains an
a cupcake sugar rush, listening 
Dora birthday party songs to celebrate 
with my zaches.

Proclaimed Queen for a day (pun intended ;)).

The biggest gift was to randomly stumble upon this 
devastating beautiful gem that I would like to share.

Feliz 5 de mayo

A couple of days ago I ate an apple and I realized the seed was germinating!
I couldn't not keep it. 
Sort of magic.
But I didn't have any soil or cotton ball...Then, water was it.
I forgot about the apple, the soil and the seed.
Kids sick.
While playing hide and seek today
I found it again, growing ?!

Let's grow this apple tree!

Pairing of the occasion:

“The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”

Sweet long weekend

“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old,
 they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.” 
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

And today in this kitchen we're pairing
 Gabo with the sweet voice of Nick Drake...

The result is  Julius, an old friend of mine whose weird point of view* let him reach so many unexpected succesful dreams.  
(*he never realized he was wearing his glasses upside down, did you?)

* * * * * * * *

Which will you go for? Which will you love?
Which will you choose from, from the stars above?
Which will you answer? Which will you call?
Which will you take for, for your one and all?
And tell me now which will you love the best?

Which do you dance for? Which makes you shine?

Which will you choose now, if you won't choose mine?
Which will you hope for? Which can it be?...

Nick Drake

Día del Libro Infantil y Juvenil

-I like books. I love children´s books. I am a collector of children´s books.
When I am old they are going to be very valuable, you´ll see.

- No more books. Me or the books. 
- Smell this one, honey.

And another freezing day...The last one??
I close my eyes and zoom to a magic sunny room, 
far away,
where I only need my blue coat and red boots :-)
