Hello My T-Friends!
Tomorrow June begins and we are heading into Winter. It's been cold here and getting dark early. I love this cold weather. It's better than our Summer because we were almost evaporating. I thank you all for your uplifting messages about mum. It's incredible how people can be so warm even if miles separate them whereas people who are close don't really care much about each other's lives. Compassion and empathy are rare qualities nowadays.
Yesterday I drew the girl above. It was very late and the colors were dull/lifeless ( can I say that? ) on the photo. Then I made the colors pop up digitally. I'd like to know which one do you prefer and why. Colors fascinate me maybe because Brazilian art and Brazil itself is so colorful. Despite what's happening here, I'd like to tell you my country is beautiful and vibrant. I saw a charge about The Olympic Games in which an athlete got a gold medal and around him, there were a lot of armed people, trying to rob his prize. I know my country is poor but there are a lot of decent people here and that include those who live in total poverty. Discrimination and prejudice are a malady everywhere. I found a quote to express my feelings.
"Build bridges, not walls. Make love, not war. Spread positivity, not hate. Live life, be happy."
