Hi. My name is Celica G. Di Ronco, thanks for reading. Maybe you are a random reader without a name, or an alien (who understands the language). No problem, I’ve got no interest in your gender, I’ll simply call you “a living being”. Believe me, don’t take it badly, without you: I’m “nothing”.
Let me tell you a few things before you leave, it won’t be long. Eduardo Galeano once wrote, “the system empties our memory or fills it with garbage and thus teaches us to repeat the story instead of creating it”.
I’ve always felt the need to create and this is my story:
At 5 years old, I decided to draw and later to paint.
At 16 years old, I decided to write and later to make tattoos.
At 19 years old, I finished my studies specializing in building design and technical construction.
At 20 years old, I decided to play bass and later double bass.
At 26 years old, I decided to study at university, first math, then physics and later literature. (I didn’t finish my studies but I learned enough to walk firmly through this hostile and treacherous world).
At 29 years old, I published my first novel: Humores Vítreos Azules.
At 30 years old, I left Argentina for Europe and settled in Barcelona.
At 31 years old, I published my second novel: Fluxiones Viscosas Magentas.
At 33 years old, I decided to take photos starting with digital photography and later tansitioning to chemical photography. (Developing, enlarging and printing).
At 35 years old, I published my third novel: Lapsus Volátiles Naranjas.
At 38 years old, I decided to learn permaculture design and later 3D printing.
Today, at 43 years old, I continue with photography, writing, drawing, painting and dreaming. I work in a big ICT company as a senior technician; I also manage and coordinate the website Artística · Di Ronco, (a website of art, photography and literature); Luzniebla · Studios (a virtual website of branding and design); Di Ronco · Industries, (a little company of permaculture and building); and yottaByte · ICT (website about technologies).
A wide range of activities. What do they have in common?
Basicly, my self-taught way of directing my professional life and not participating in this increasingly sick world of “acute overdose of degrees”. I know, without university degrees, I’m “nobody”, but I’ve spent all my life studying the themes and learning the trades and I keep feeding my internal life engine aiming at ever greater perfection. I wouldn’t mind dying today. Though, should the universe grant me another day in this body nothing will stop this lifelong learning that has the sole purpose of enjoying life and becoming a better person.
Something to add?
I like playing the double bass and thinking. I’m learning to play the drums, Italian, English and at night, looking through my telescope (when the weather is favorable) I get lost in the vastness of the sky dreaming those elusive dreams that don’t come while I’m sleeping.
I also design homes and research ways to build with environmentally friendly materials because I hold a degree as “construction technician” that enables me to do these things with full knowledge of the cause. For now it’s more like a hobby I haven’t yet put it to professional use.
