Fuego que habla (Talking fire)
In Mexico we have used the fire in some protest (in a peaceful way, just as a symbol) to represent energy, strength, change and light. I learn ascii-art, and I realized that even in quarantine, the fire is inside me... be your own fire and never stop shining.
En México hemos usado fuego (de manera pacífica) en algunas manifestaciones para representar energía, fuerza, cambio y luz. Aprendí ascii-art, y me dí cuenta de que incluso en cuarentena, este fuego sigue dentro de mí... sé tu propio fuego y nunca dejes de brillar.
I feel privileged with job security, house, garden, two dogs and a loving husband. Self-isolation has been tough though because I thrive on other people's energy. I had to reinvent friendships and forge new ones via online forums, video chats, talking to neighbours when clapping to recognise essential workers... Routine has helped a lot, including coffee socials with colleagues. This has reshaped our relationships, often made them more personal. But regular sports and getting out of the house to be on my own has been essential for focusing on myself to store up energy for my new communities and healthy house life.
