"If you wait for the bus, the bus will come" - Carmen Herrera
We live in a world were we want everything to go fast and be there as soon as we want it to be. For some reason, the speed we make to achieve the things we think we want is not making the content better or the concentration level higher.
And that is exactly why you have to check out this documentary about Carmen Herrera: The 100 years show - trailer. The modern artist is the perfect example of patience, hope and determination. Herrera is almost a 100 years on this planet and got recognition just a couple of years ago. As she puts it herself: "I always say, if you wait for the bus, the bus will come. I had to wait 98 years for the bus to come!"
Be inspired by this productive elderly icon and watch de documentary. If you don't have the time at the moment (because you're probably in a hurry, as we always are, all of the time) I have selected some pictures of her artwork below.
