YELLOW AND BLACK, THE COLOURS OF LITERARY SOLIDARITY
Next week is special because Christmas holidays start. I know that there are people who are not convinced by this festivity, but I have always liked them, because in my family we have always celebrated them, and we continue to do so, with the same enthusiasm. They are days to be with your keen, to enjoy food and a good dessert. But also, it is also a good time to value what you have and think of people who, perhaps, cannot enjoy a family, or a meal, but neither at Christmas nor any day of the week.
For that reason, I am happy to be able to celebrate the fourth edition of LA LITERATURA ALIMENTA on December the 20th, a solidary celebration with the authors and friends of the sector who would like to come to combine literature and solidarity. Thinking about others, making happy the one next to you, offering a smile every morning to those who you love the most, or simply, to whom serves you coffee, does not cost anything, and however, it is still few of us, I believe, those who try to do it like that. And with this small solidary party, which thanks to many of you, it starts to be big, every year, we try to help an entity that needs it. This time we repeat with Educo, to help with lunch scholarships to the children that need it, so that they can have a hot meal per day, since they cannot have it in their homes.
It is an initiative that fills me, despite the extra work it involves, and that I will try to keep growing, because to do something that excites you without intending to receive anything in return, is one of the best ways to feel happy. And knowing that friends and colleagues help me and support me, make this day more special every time and remains forever as a great moment of the year, the icing on the cake. So today, this blog, recommends a better world full of books and good people, so that we can toast together on the 20th with a glass of wine in one hand, and in the other, a solidary mug, black and yellow, which are the colours of our literary flag.
