The Forest Floor

When I walk in the woods, I'm often so focused on the destination that it's easy to forget to look around and enjoy the beauty along the way.

Definitely not edible

One of the traditions I love being in the Catalan countryside is cooking Paella and Arròs (rice) outside on a wood fire with friends. This day was spent at La Catxaruda in Gallifa, just outside of Barcelona.

We get so focused on labeling each other that we forget that we are all human and we are all connected. The spider's web reminds me of that connection; sometimes seemingly invisible, but strong and persistent nonetheless. As a government(s) tries to sew fear, create enemies, and disconnect us, remember that we are all inhabitants of the same planet and all connected to each other. We ALL need each other to thrive.

A Winter's Dream

On the border of Catalunya and Aragon lies the small village of La Clua. It has 5 residents. On a cold and grey winter day in Barcelona, I dream of looking out over this field as the daylight wanes.
