“I write because I love it. Words are free, and they soar with wings unbound from my mind to my fingers. And then they travel great miles to reach your eyes. Here are the stories that I have to share. They stem from my observations, my experiences, my joys, my anguish, and my pure love of writing. They describe, they explain, they argue, they laugh, they cry. They are for you.”

(sorry about the bull-fighting “bit” in “the master writer’s” quote). So how about supporting a campaign to get rid of it in Spain (especially), but also world-wide!

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all.
