I should have known that the sand was hotter than in the morning. I had to carry Gina, weighing about thirty kilogram, in short stages. Whenever I put her down on a towel to rest, she gave a yelp and lifted her paws alternately. A man who observed our agony felt with her and carried her all the way into the shadow of a snack stall.
At my very first beginning I started to paint for making visible all the long and short waiting periods of some singular days of waitings, of waiting for everything that depends on other peoples decisions. Proceeding to do so up to now, painting became my main- force of habit and growned up to my profession.
