Tuesday, August 18th 2015 at 4am in the morning I could not sleep more and I went to the bathroom. I was feeling strange, too much thinking, may be some pain in my body but I noticed that something was happening. I saw me in front of the mirror and I discovered that my hair, my magic hair was falling a part. All of them! So fucking crazy to see how your hair is not alive anymore. I was in shocked of course. It is worst than in a movie, you know... all of those stereotypes that movies show when you are losing the hair for the side effects of chemothrapy.
Well, this is my story, my own private story.... not too private because I prefer to share the experience with you, it is a good feeling at the end of the day to say how is this difficult process, how much
affect the femininity of a woman.
In my case I want to have this process like a ritual, a new beginning, a new Angeles , a new Chica..... yes! Because it is something to remember and I need to live this experience second by second.
The day I cut my hair was magic. In a private special soiree with some closes friends, in silence, in a friend house, who generosity he gave me his own space to made a mess on his living room. With all my hair, my tears and all my emotions we created a night full of creativity,
so fucking real and so magic!
In a few days you will have the opportunity to see the whole magic process in avery special film.
Now, talking about films, for a good surprise today I discovered that the talented Penelope Cruz is in a movie interpreting a woman who is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Amazing moment to fight this Big C and even the world and the fashion world is fighting for this diseases and I am part of this.
Amazing moment in my life, for good or bad all of this is gong to give me more strength and valour to keep going in this battle.
Because I want to LIVE!
