Saints’ day. Sebastian

Dear followers:

currently St Sebastian is a true icon of gay people. Really his body as a target of the arrows during the martyrdom of his legend, is a nice and genuine motif. But please don’t confuse me, I’m only a man, who doesn’t like others men. Thanks for your understanding.

Hats and headdresses

Mirna Morgan joking

Dear followers:
Mirna Morgan is my friend since long time ago. She often wears something on her head and I have always thought that is because she has many good ideas and achieves that nothing escapes, like the creation of this new specialty within the topics of this blog.
She is not only a very clever woman, she also is a Hat Designer in Brazil. We can learn her lesson and from now on we will not let anything escapes from our head.
Thanks M & M, this section we owe to you.
This is the blog of her poetry:
