My aunt Gladys has a small cyst in a breast. The diagnosis states 'potentially benign' but this has thrown us in a dreadful states of nervousness. Current Mood: worried

Two years now without you. mom. I miss you so much...
I know sometimes we weren't in the best of terms but I did all because I loved you. I know you'd have approved the picking of Bagheera and would jhave supported me in the bad days I have had...
Sorry I couldn't have a mass for you this day... I swear you'l have one as soon as the university pays.
I feel so lonely...
December will never be a happy month for me. never again. First dad and then you. Different years but same month and almost same week...
aah, I feel so down all of a sudden... Current Mood: depressed
The little black kitten I found half-dead three weeks ago, is now a bundle of joy and energy. can't conceive my life now without him. Current Mood: cheerful
Finally my laptop arrived yesterday. I haven't slept decently in one week. Regrettably, our mail service has a less than sterling reputation at the end of the year and, since they hadn't delivered it five days after schedule, I was beginning to panic.
Well, Little Ferrari is at home (yes, she has a name!) and I'm transferring files and downloading software I had in my old Compaq. It's a good computer but terribly outdated by comparison.
I'll sell it ASAP. Current Mood: cheerful

My friend Coral is back, my drawing has improved, I have been requested two projects for Furry artist goups mascots, at last have a scanner! Current Mood: cheerful

I have had a lot of fun remembering how much I liked Green Lantern as a kid; in fact, GL, Hawkman and Flash were my favorite heroes, well above from Batman anad Superman.
The arrival of GL: First flight was a jolt for me. Seeing again Hal Jordan was refreshing, especially because Kal Reiner, his succesor, seems to me lacks all the luster of HJ (i.e. he seems a complete idiot).
Talking with Amanda, my british friend, popped up the idea of doing each an Amanda Hamster (boy, when you and your avatar have the same name, conversations can turn pretty awkward, but being Amanda the great gal she is, well... I pass everything for her. She's the best thing in my life and,frankly, if not for her, perhaps I wouyld have said goodbye to drawing or writing) costumed as GL.
In fact, Amanda is an incesant source of amusement. Just the pic where Orson (another ADH char) has her on the ground at swordpoint was enough for a cascade of sketches and ideas she has accepted graciously.
I will try drawing dragons as practice for a Seth's pic. Ah, he is another wonder!With his eyesight problems and draws like the best! And his backgrounds! I must confess my art perhaps will never reach their level. Why Amanda does not offer her skills to an editorial is beyond my comprehension. She is very good. very very good.
Speaking of which, Tackle, the CEO of the North regional of Colombiafur is fascinated with her meticulosity with details. I, personally, love her eyes' design, what I call, the 'exquisite complication of the irises' Hmm, Anime has quite complicated eyes, especially with the gleams. I myslf onluy apply one dot of white to cut the iris but she applies quite skillfully three or more.
How I'd love to meet her in person! Or chat with her! Current Mood: contemplative
At last I could lay my hands upon a used scanner! I am scanning now all my old sketches.
Hmmm, today David, my coordinator's son, was subject of a shoulder surgery. He is in recovery at this moment.

Yesterday was a sad day. mom's birthday was jan. 21st. A bit melancholic; otherwise, it was a good working day, nearly finished loading the medicine new books.
Received an email from Colombiafur CEO's in Bogota. The mascot prototipe I sent has been well received. This weekend I must ink and color, as well as draw new posts and alternate mascots. I'll try to do the drawing of Gibraltar, the monkey warrior I prepare for Amanda, some cartoon dragons (It's so funny she and seth call their "dwaggins") and assorted stuff.
one good thing is that I have recovered my sleep rythm; my insomnia seems to be passing. Current Mood: contemplative
|Solidarity for Haiti
One week after the devastating earthquake that virtually destroyed Haiti as a nation, the samples of soldiraity are more abundant day after day, some of them really touching: the inmates of the most dread prison in Bogota gave their food for relief of the haitians, the beggars that go to a charity station fornthem also gave their rations for support and today I read about a 9-year old kid that's guiding a rally in Facebook to give his apport to this cause.
Day after day the apparent reality is that "fellow man" is just a bunch of letters void of sense. It's so refreshing to see such examples of love for the most needed! Current Mood: touched

I just leraned Coral's granny died Dec 24. I feel so bad for not having sent my regrets. Sorry, hon. Please forgive this old fool. Current Mood: depressed
This guy here is my entrance to the mascot's contest for the Colombiafur account on Furaffinity.net. He has received a warm welcome, something that gladdens me together with the fact that I amthe most veteran furry artist in Colombia! Current Mood: ecstatic

Meery Christmas, Swannie. I hope you read this one.
|Saturday, December 5th, 2009|
I recently began to post again in LJ and read what has happened recently in the life of whom I consider one of my best friends: couldn't comtain my tears when I read about her pet's demise and can't avoid thinking in my own.
Just trying to offer some comnfort to my friend. I promise I'll post more frequently.
Just pray she forgives me and write me again. Current Mood: depressed

|Mom's first year
Two days ago I celebrated the mass for my mom's first year.
The most touching was the the university where I work celebrates mass each Wednesday and they decided to celebrate it at the library, where I am the director.
That night I had a mass at the nearby seminar and some of my co-workers went also.
I felt so touched! And with a lot of peace, all of a sudden.
The weird is that I awoke that dawn at the exact hour the hospital called us to tell us of her death.
Now, that's weird; all the week I had had bad sleep and, after that, I slept like a baby and awakened with a much better mood.
At last my office's scanner is working, though I had to borrow the USB cable from the laser printer.
I hope Swannie has received my previous messages.

Yesterday was my mother's first year of death. It has not been easy and only my friends have given me some measure of peace. I have known so wonderful people in this year, so sweet friends... Amanda, Seth, Chris, Corgi... oh, so many!
I haven't been in contact with so many others and my face falls in shame, especially with Swannie. if she doesn't contact me, well, I guess I deserve it. Not once I used the LJ in this past months. If only she could forgive me, I never have forgotten her.
Now life is before me and I hope,pray, wish, my wonderful friends will be always beside me and those I neglected could forgive me.
As for my little brother, I miss him so much and I wish he could contact me again! If you read this, Blue Rings, your bro still loves you. We are not blood brothers but you have been for me more a brother than my real ones.
My friends: I love you all. Current Mood: contemplative

These are some of my most recent pics, though many need to be cleaned and arranged. I never before had tried this kind of illustration (all done tastefully, of course)
I have a page at www.lionking.org, as Springheel and guess! I have already been invited for an art trade! Current Mood: ecstatic
