“The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

Dear followers, a few days ago, while talking with Sara P. Lorenzo, a good friend and also an excellent psychologist, she recommended me this classic of literature. I have not yet read it, but she gave me the splendid suggestion to publish this post that links reading with painting and drawing. I’m hopeful you will like it.

Horses, riders, carts and donkeys (A tribute)

Hi folks!  These two animals, one very strong, timid and delicate at the same time, as is the Horse, and another enormously resistant and sacrificed, as is the Donkey, have been the ones that have most delivered and served humanity with their work.

However, over the centuries, we have mistreated them with our constant wars. The artists of this post have made a small tribute to them. Thanks so much for your loyalty to this blog!

WARNING! Special Events in U.S.A. (January, 20th 21th. 2017)

The provocative President’s last words about journalists were:

‘They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth”

The power on his hands is a real danger to the whole world.

Awww friend! I’m sorry for my mistakes, it’s the first time that this blog, reblogged from another site.
I have chosen only some pictures, because I thought that putting them all was too much.

But as you can see, the text of your post, remains literally.
Thanks a lot !!!
