bloody mary

by Lilian

la llorona

in Latin American folklore, la llorona is a ghost who roams waterfront areas mourning her drowned children


the legend has a wide variety of details and versions

in a typical version of the legend, a beautiful woman named Maria marries a rich ranchero with whom she bears two children

one day, Maria sees her husband with another woman and in a fit of blind rage, she drowns their children in a river, which she immediately regrets

unable to save them and consumed by guilt, she drowns herself as well but is unable to enter the afterlife without her children

some recent work by Lilian

it’s hard to keep track of and to photograph her work these days

she’s always working within lots of notebooks as well as doing a lot of digital art on her tablet

but i try to keep up…

ARTsy wednesday

by the time some of you read this (does anyone come here anymore though?), i will be on my way to los angeles to spend one of my bestie’s 50th birthday with her

it’s been three years since i was in california and despite everything, i am looking forward to spending time with her and being there

i first fell in love with the west coast when i was 18 and it has always held a special place in my heart

if you know me, you know that i hate flying and am totally nervous about it because every time i fly, i think i’m going to die

this time is no different

covid or no covid

so… in case anything happens to me, i’d like to be cremated and, i’d like my ashes to be sprinkled in the ocean

that ocean being at the beacch in monte gordo portugal, ocean beach san diego and/or southbeach

i also leave everything to my daughter Lilian (sorry honey)

yes, there you have it, a small will right here on the blog (being written at 4:30am because i couldn’t sleep)

fingers crossed all goes well and i make it safely across

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

liar liar

disconnected connections

burden

black and blue

i will say more when i feel less

i’ll call you

dreams like feet better than knees
