Dear readers,

in my last post I wrote that I will not be writing on my blog as often anymore,but today I want to share with you that in the last days I decided that I will take a longer hiatus from blogging and return to writing again sometime next year.
Though I love blogging I have to admit that at this time of my life I do not have any desire for it whatsoever.
I am at a good place right now and serene about my religious beliefs,so I just want to live my life in tranquillity
and praise the Lord through my actions.
There are still things that I want to write about,but not right now and not at any time soon.
However,I will still gladly continue to read your blogs and comment on them.Maybe not regularly,but I will definitely stick somewhere around.
My facebook page is going to remain active so if you wish you are kindly welcome there to visit me.That sure would make me very happy!
I will go now,but before that I want to say THANK YOU to every single person that has ever visited my blog and to the ones who will maybe wait for me until next year.
I will leave you with the poem - Ten esperanza - by my favorite poet ever Vicente Aleixandre 
(Nobel Prize for Literature 1977).I myself can understand Spanish only as much as it is similar to Italian,but nevertheless I have decided to post this poem in its original version.Please try to find a translation that could be more suitable for you and enjoy its beautiful message.It is so worthy!

Goodbye for now and see you next year.


(1898 Sevilla - 1984 Madrid)

Ten esperanza

¿Lo comprendes? Lo has comprendido.
¿Lo repites? Y lo vuelves a repetir.
Siéntate. No mires hacia atrás. ¡Adelante!
Adelante. Levántate. Un poco más. Es la vida.
Es el camino. ¿Que llevas la frente cubierta de sudores, con espinas, con polvo, con amargura, sin amor, sin mañana?...
Sigue, sigue subiendo. Falta poco. Oh, qué joven eres.
Qué joven, qué jovencísimo, que recién nacido. Qué ignorante. 
Entre tus pelos grises caídos sobre la frente brillan tus claros ojos azules,
tus vividos, tus lentos ojos puros, allí quedados bajo algún velo.
Oh, no vaciles y álzate. Álzate todavía. ¿Qué quieres?
Coge tu palo de fresno blanco y apóyate. Un brazo a tu lado quisieras. Míralo.
Míralo, ¿no lo sientes? Allí, súbitamente, está quieto. Es un bulto silente.
Apenas si el color de su túnica lo denuncia. Y en tu oído una palabra no pronunciada.
Una palabra sin música, aunque tú la estés escuchando.
Una palabra con viento, con brisa fresca. La que mueve tus vestidos gastados.
La que suavemente orea tu frente. La que seca tu rostro,
la que enjuga el rastro de aquellas lágrimas.
La que atusa, apenas roza tu cabello gris ahora en la inmediación de la noche.
Cógete a ese brazo blanco. A ese que apenas conoces, pero que reconoces.
Yérguete y mira la raya azul del increíble crepúsculo,
la raya de la esperanza en el límite de la tierra.
Y con grandes pasos seguros, enderézate, y allí apoyado, confiado, solo, 
échate rápidamente a andar...
