Well, I am back! 2020 here we go, like 2019, there we went. Where are we going in 2020? I don’t know, but I know I am going to like it. That’s how I survive, looking at the good and exciting part of everything and everyone that touches my life. Even though, sometimes, setting boundaries is one of the best things you can do with some elements that come into your life and think that you are their walking carpet.
So excited to share this piece of news for this new decade. I decided I am going to become a professional photographer. Why? Because I love to take images that tell a story, or I can make one up. I like to make people look their best. I want to make their iconic images a real thing.
Sometimes we as humans have some images or fantasies in our mind of how we are or would like to be. I know for myself, I love the image Tina Turner portrays. That forever young, active and her “I don’t give a dime about what you think of me” attitude. Or at least that’s how I perceive it to be.
Another person I am emulating is Ralph Lauren. I watched a documentary on HBO called Very Ralph. I so love it! He, Lauren, is such a dedicated, passionate and demanding person of his brand and his products. He is the portrait of a classic image, at least for me. He is so sexy too.
So here you have it, my aspirations for this new decade. A tall order, but doable and as Marie Forleo’s mom would say, it’s figureoutable. I think I have it right.
Yes, I will continue with my abstract minimalist paintings too. As a matter of fact, I have a sketch of the next one. Excited about that one too.
Life is a highway of exciting, challenging, lovely and the not so lovely things, but it is what we make of it. No excuses.
Happy Decade to you! May your illusions and aspirations come true or close to it.
