So tomorrow starts today and the future is always a promise of better days and solutions. When I think of 2013, I will remember the good friends I lost this year, our strikes/fight against the system, my friends/colleagues crying when nothing else could be done to change things. I won't look back in anger because there is no anger but only hope. I still hope we can be heard and I am proud I am part of this change. It is a privilege to take part in a protest ( and I have been to many this year) after years of dictatorship.
I will also close my eyes and be thankful for my new friends, for my art, for my family, for my life. They make sense in a senseless world.
I'd like to leave you a message written by a Brazilian writer called Augusto Cury:
Wish you may not be afraid of life and not be afraid of living it.
There is no heaven without storms, or roads without accidents.
It is only worthy of the podium, the one who uses his defeats to reach it.
It is only worthy of wisdom the one who uses his tears to irrigate it.
Fragile people use force; strong people, intelligence.
Be a dreamer, but unite your dreams with discipline,
for dreams without discipline produce frustrated people.
Become a debater of ideas. Fight for what you love.
Happy New Year and don't forget: life has the colors you paint it!
