ABOUT the AUTHOR
"Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend." --Albert Camus
I love animals, humans included. These two Samoyed and Labrador mix breed brothers accompanied me for many years. Mambo and Jazz were as loyal to me as I hope to be to my chosen friends.
They were a year old at the time.
Eduardo Cervino (AKA E.C. Brierfield) was born in Havana, Cuba, where he studied art and architecture. The Castro revolution failed to deliver on its promises of freedom, prosperity, and peace. Eduardo refused the communist regime’s indoctrination. Instead, he voiced his opposition and ended up in an agricultural forced labor camp.
In time, he moved to Madrid, Spain. Exiles are not like tourists. They never know if they will ever see again the loved ones they left behind. This pain seeded his heart with an overwhelming desire to give a hand to the fallen and join any group dedicated to healing the hurting.
After arriving in the USA, he wrote his memoirs. Eduardo found great satisfaction in writing. In New York City, he renewed his painting career. Since then, he has combined painting, architecture, and writing to express his awe for life’s wonders.
He has traveled throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, and Canada. Eduardo has resided in Havana, Cuba; Madrid, Spain; New York City, Denver, and Phoenix.“Life’s ups and downs make it a marvelous experience,” he said. “But only if we cultivate an ever-growing circle of friends to share it with.”
