Women that leave the arms of their men

It is long time since I do not wirte in my own language, Spanish and long since I have not read in my language.

9 months ago

It has been 9 months without words. Complete silence. Just work, pushing hard, jumping the precipice from the student life to the working life. No words. Only work. And decisions.
