Becoming Real

Ya tenía tiempo queriendo hacer esta imagen. Algo que reflejara como siento aquel pasaje de un libro de mi infancia que quedó en mi corazón por siempre. La conjunción de vulnerabilidad y amor es algo que alcanza a marcar algo de mí y quise compartirlo.

I've wanted to do this image for a while now. It's something inspired by something I read in a book from my childhood and stayed in my heart forever. To be vulnerable and loved at the same time is something that reaches deep in my soul and I wanted to share that.

You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.
