Postcards from the Urban Jungle







Barcelona---When things become too stressful you go far, far away for refuge.  My source of calmness is the complete antithesis of a spa.  I needed the sounds of the cars, the whiff of stale carbon monoxide, the chaos of lights and the madness of people.  Balance madness with madness and you'll come with a neutral effect.  It is a science that has not been proven to be precise but for me, it definitely is.

Nothing. Not even the one hour delayed flight, the drama of the Catalan weather and air turbulence can stop me getting to where I wanted to go.  I switched off my Blackberry and I let the real world  fade along with its blinking red light. 

Once again, I was in a a world I was accustomed to. The place I have left for the calmness of the seaside.  Here's some snapshots of my first two days in Barcelona.  My ode to the (urban) jungle...
where the dragons live...


and super heroes exist.




Where you can be who you want to be...


and where you can roar like a lion.





Where everything turns into gold...





where beauty is ageless...





where you can take things lightly...





where the impossible becomes possible....




where the colour becomes you....



where hellos and goodbyes are one and the same...




where the past becomes the present...



where happiness is as soft as cashmere...



where people discover new boundaries...




Where nature is nurtured...




Where everything is not sombra




And where broken hearts are healed.



Besos!

Note:  As my I am having with my wordpress again(!), let's do with this site for the moment. Thanks.
