Catalino (Lino) D. Rosales | Art Dabbler, Budding Writer, and Adventure Seeker
Hi! I am Catalino, or "Lino," for short. I am a jack-of-all-trades in perpetual training and knight of infinite faith. I aspire to learn and experience as much as I possibly can. I have a special interest in foreign languages, an insatiable appetite for travel, and a healthy drive for self-improvement. I am from New Jersey, but I have called other places "home." In my spare time, I explore and write. Thanks for visiting my corner of the Internet where I share my words and photos!
There has been much speculation about the future of NYC recently. But I know that the city will survive and thrive. As someone who grew up in the NYC metro area, I know firsthand how resilient and resourceful its people are. #NYC #BetterDaysAhead #KeepFighting #StayStrong
Times are very scary right now. I have no idea if I can even dare to dream and plan anymore because everything is so uncertain. So, I am clinging to art right now. Art is something that has always been a part of my life. Art is also proof that I can make something out of nothing--and that I can ultimately make it through all of this. #Art #Therapy
Even though the last few months have been incredibly stressful and scary, I have been able to make time to create some art--and in the process, to maintain my sanity. #Art #SelfCare #Life #CopingMechanisms
Sometimes, the best getaway is not so faraway. Museums have an amazing power to show you that life's everyday troubles are not really worth the stress. At the end of the day, we have a finite amount of time that we have to allocate wisely, based on our individual value systems and life goals. #LifeGoesOn
I have been back in the NYC metro area for 6 whole months now; and I am really glad that I made the difficult decision to move back. Being around my family and friends has truly given me a new perspective on what I need to accomplish for the next chapter of my life. And it definitely does not hurt that there is always something fun to see and do in the city. ;-)
