Ordinary Labors are Solutions to Catastrophes 🏆

After the attacks on the World Trade Center, Americans — and particularly New Yorkers — were told that we needed to go about our lives as we normally would to demonstrate to the terrorists that they hadn’t won. “For individuals, the most effective course of action they can take to aid our recovery is to be determined to go ahead with their lives. We can’t let terrorists change the way we live. Otherwise, they will have succeeded. In some ways, the resilience of life in New York City is the ultimate sign of defiance to terrorists.”

Sometimes, when catastrophes happen, is better to continue with our ordinary labors. Keep doing what it is expected, as a regular day; and reaching a higher help in another way. Lets take, for instance, the example when children are being bullied at school. Even when the kid could still return to the same activities, moms and dads can reach other parents, or teachers. A solution must be found and Church or praying may not be the adequate solution to everything.

Followers in Mexican soccer league ⚽

Do you know a team that hasn’t been champion for decades? That is the case of Atlas, in Mexican soccer league,
whose logo appears, and who has one of the best followings known.

Little papers are falling from the sky (in this digital painting), because being a champion doesn’t happen every day. He is becoming one at this exact moment, when he will break the goal bar. I took a second to think that those ribbons should be easy to break. If not, they could lead to sport injuries.

He said he was thinking in his sons at that precise moment. The middle one is a boy, the other two are girls. Because “there are vices around childs”, he then recommends to do exercise or to practice sports.

Thinking in this achievement, I imagine it is a challenge to train while raising 3 sons. Child care can be exhausting, and at the same time, rewarding. Kids usually bring new stuff to families, many times good stuff, and others with unpredictable results. Related to this, I talked about unpredictability and the weird bounces of oval footballs. For now, lets continue with a stable-predictable routine. Have a nice day ☺.

An oval football 🏈

They asked me to stamp my fingertips for a VISA. Many times. I was remembering this when I painted this image (you can see in te picture, fingertips in orange and blue).

Why is the scene raining? I don’t really know: (and if the painter doesn’t know, who does?). Why are plus-signs happening in the upper and lower edges? I don’t know either hahaha.

It have always been strange, for my foreign brown eyes, to see this bouncing oval in the field. The football, the center of the game, is not a perfect circle, why? I Didn’t figured out when I googled it. Instead, I founded that early footballs were made out of animal bladders; and other related info.

Sometimes these circumstances happen to me. Artists can find unexpected results in searches, like the unexpected bounce of these new footballs. This uncertainty, this weird bounce, is what I love about the game of life. For me, being an artist and painter, whenever a vibrant emerald green appears, it talks about unpredictability. You can see it in my painting, in the green football (and also in the right horizontal bars).

I am a routine-predictable-guy. I know routines get interesting with this salt behavior. Because they could transport you to other more fantastic worlds.
