Today we will tell you what unites Ana María Borrás, a law graduate from the University of Valencia, and David Taus, creator of Pobill Ecològics, a company of organic oils and gourmet products. What traits do they have in common? Why do we have them both in this post today? At first glance it seems like none, but we found three points in common. Do you want to know what they are?
They both were born in Càlig
Ana María was born in Càlig, her roots are in Baix Maestrat. Ana María works nowadays as a lawyer in Castelló, but she never forgets her hometown, which she calls her refuge. Because you never forget the streets where you were born or the experiences you had that helped you become the person you are today.
Pobill Ecològics is a project created by David Taus Betí, who is also from Càlig, the place where he saw the Pobill Ecològics olive trees born and grow. Although he left to study and work abroad, one day he missed his land, the smells of the wet earth after the first drops of rain, the ringing of the bells, the pink color of the almond blossoms and the bees dancing around him, the laughter of friends talking about childhood. Therefore, he returned to the place from which he came.
They both have created their dream
Dreams are not meant to be fulfilled, but to be created and lived. And the people of Càlig know a lot about that. In the case of Ana Maria, who continues to practice as a lawyer in Casteló, she had never considered being a writer. This passion came out and she took advantage of it, created her own dream and made it come true with the publication of his first novel, Mary Willbron. La subhasta de Führer, based on historical events and real characters. This book tells the story of its protagonist, Mary Willbron, a highly regarded English art critic, divorced and settled in New York for more than two decades, who travels to London in April 1939 to attend an auction. There she is surprised by the death of his father and the reality of the pre-war situation in Europe.
David, for his part, after studying Business Administration and Management, entered the real estate world. But after the economic crisis, who was going to tell him that he would return to the place where he was born to make oil? He did everything and decided to return to his origins, to the work that he had known from a very young age and that for a while he had not appreciated as he should have. Thanks to this dream that he built himself, his organic oil and the other gourmet products he produces exist today.
They both make art
Writing is an art. Embracing the words one by one until creating a story that manages to transport us to another era and be part of adventures that we would never be able to live otherwise, is simply magic. Not everyone knows how to put an idea in their head into the exact words.
Ana María is an artist. She is, as she defines herself, a tireless reader of historical biographies and an amateur painter, two activities that always accompany her, along with her passion for classic cinema. Proof of this fusion is the publication of her book, which collects the cultural background of the author, including painting concepts or references to cinema in the novel.
But agriculture is also an art, one of the oldest known to mankind. Cultivating the land requires knowledge, patience, love. And this is what David Taus does, cultivating the soil respecting the land, developing new techniques that help develop the countryside but protecting nature, studying new advances to optimize resources.
That’s why today we bring you the union of these two people born in Càlig who have more things in common than you think. Do not stop reading the book by Ana María Borrás, Mary Willbron. La subhasta el Führer, or taste Pobill Ecològics products. Two people who have firm roots in the Maestrat.
