“When you know who you are; when your mission is clear 
and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart;
no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive.”

Heart of a Good Mother

October 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

ENG/ In these times when devastating egocentrism dislodged the concept of humanity, rediscovering pure generosity is always a comfort. If you are also looking for it, I recommend that you search in a place where it´s generally located, in the heart of a good mother.

In the picture, a sinhalese woman calms her new born baby, in a bus of Sri Lanka.


ESP/ De vuelta tras unos días en Zaragoza, disfrutando de la familia y desconectado de las redes sociales. En estos tiempos en que el devastador egocentrismo ha desbancado al concepto de humanidad, consuela reencontrarse con la generosidad pura, sin condiciones ni interés alguno. Si también la andas buscando, te recomiendo mirar donde casi siempre se encuentra, en el corazón de una buena madre.

En la foto, una mujer cingalesa consuela a su recién nacido en un bus de Sri Lanka.
