Since November last year, I’ve been practicing calligraphy, reading about it, doing some online courses (here and here) and I also attended a short workshop with Bay Area calligrapher Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls
It’s been an interesting journey to use other media to express myself.
I specially like Modern Calligraphy since it gives me the freedom to develop my own style. I feel that it’s like drawing, but drawing letters 🙂
This year I decided to use this technique plus some watercolors to create a free downloadable art for Mother’s Day.
Motherhood is an amazing journey. It’s a rollercoaster, it has the scariest moments and the most fun moments all-together.
Sometimes it seems that a day lasts forever; just like when you’re going up in your cart and it seems it will never end climbing and then, suddenly, it goes so fast that you still feel like it was just a moment ago when everything started.
Hemingway wrote one of my favorites quotes and, now that I think about it, it can also be used to express how kids grow up: “Gradually, then suddenly“.
Motherhood is an amazing journey. You can do it alone, but it will take part of your sanity on the journey so it’s just much better if you have other(s) around to help.
For some moms, the help comes from their partners, for other it comes from amazing parents or in-laws, for others great relatives, good friends or even a kind neighbor or from the community close to you. And even when none of those exist or we don’t feel their help, God is always there, in our hardest moments when we don’t even think he could possibly be there with us and in the easiest silliest ones: always.
Motherhood is an amazing journey. So, take this gift and send it to a mom you know because we are all in this together and feeling that we’re not alone in this is… Oh boy, such a relief!
We’re all in this together. We’re changing our world raising the human beings of the future.
Happy Mother’s Day!
