Monster
There was a monster in my closet.
In my shoes.
Behind my shadow.
Everywhere I went, it followed.
I cried, I wept, I sighed.
They told me I was crazy. Seeing things, hearing things, all invented.
The monster lives on.
It still lives in my closet, in my shoes, behind my shadow.
It stops everyone from feeling sorry for me at my darkest times.
When I need a friendly smile or a cuppa tae, the monster blocks me from their view.
Nothing gets through but coldness, indiference, neglect.
My grá is the only man who sees the monster, shoos him away and wipes my tears. But will he outlive the monster?
Maybe it will live on.
In my closet, in my shoes, behind my shadow
for all eternity.

Open Letter to a Perceived Bigot
Dear Julia,
We both know your actual name is not Julia. Identities are irrelevant to what I am about to write, and even though you might misinterpret it and think otherwise, this is not a personal attack - or defense. In fact, let me start by apologising. I am sorry for having introduced myself to your fashion group in such a threatening manner. If you have perceived me as a threat since the very beginning, it might as well have been my fault. Life has taught me to make the most out of every moment and not to waste time in hesitation, longing for belonging - however, it was foolish of me to follow my heart, and not my experience, in this specific context.
The same hopes and dreams that led me to land in a foreign country have made me feel lonely and fragile. I have spent many years learning about the culture you were born into, from a distance, but this was my first chance ever to actually take part in the lively festivals, music sessions and simplicity of everyday life I could only se

Literature
Nature is my religion
It doesn't have an ego. It won't judge anyone. Nature won't question who someone is or why he/she is walking among the trees. The grass won't protect itself from human feet, the sky won't refuse to be over anyone's head, the flowers won't hide their fragrances from anyone's nose and the fruits won't change their sweet taste in order to punish anyone. Even predators don't have an ego - they're just surviving, but they're also coexisting. The parasites won't refuse to decompose anyone's corpse. They will transform it into useful matter, they will incorporate this foreign thing into the ecosystem, even if that person was hated by other humans during the course of their life. Nature doesn't hate. It's a lot wiser than people.

Hello DA o/
Long time no see, indeed! I've given up on illustration, sorry. Too much spare time needed, which I don't have coz... I'm going to Ireland, officially now! \o/ So I still need to pack my stuff, look into documentation, finish my degree program here and the 2 research projects I'm currently carrying out, work, charge my Visa Travel... and maybe, just maybe, go to 2 other conventions and one translation congress before I finally say goodbye to Brazil. So... yeah, unfortunately I had to prioritise some things.

I'm also going to record a few more sean nós videos, as well as academic vlogs and fashion related stuff for my YouTube which you can find here --> www.youtube.com/user/Irlandesa…

And the reason I've been a lot more on YouTube lately is: it's a lot quicker to edit videos than images - or maybe I just lack the skills to do it quickly, whatevs - and also I've set myself a goal (to record a video for every sean nós song I ever learn. This may take a few decades lol) but still, this hiatus doesn't mean I'm abandoning DA altogether coz I've been into lolita fashion more than ever, so I hope to update it here occasionally with my coords - as long as the background doesn't ruin the shite out of everything, and then again I'd need to spend a few hours on edition *rolls eyes*

Anyway, please follow me on YouTube :)
