Here we are, a third of the way through, and I feel like I’m just getting started. This is good for the soul. This little affirmation every day of things to be thankful and grateful for. It’s sending positive energy out into the world. I feel that from others. I feel that for myself. 10.Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Tenth”
Monochrome. Silent. Light. Close. Pepe. Bullfight. Tragedy. Story. Beautiful. Yes.

Casa Batllo, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The theme for the photo hunt this week is different. I looked through my recent archives and ran across some pictures I took in Barcelona, Spain of the Gaudi buildings. Nothing says different and unique in architecture like a Gaudi building.

Laundry, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. It took me a little while to come up with a photo for this weeks theme, but I finally narrowed it down, every pun intended, to this one I took in a very narrow street in Barcelona, Spain. Narrow street, narrow place to hang your laundry, and small narrow balconies.Continue reading “Photo Hunt – Narrow”

It’s Monday, September 17, and we are back in Lancaster. I’ve just done a massive update to my page here with pictures from our sojourn to Barcelona.

Plaza – Las Ramblas Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Las Ramblas is the main pedestrian only thoroughfare crossing through most of downtown Barcelona. Lots of cafes, shops, and no cars whipping by. You might have to maneuver around the pigeons though, there are a lot of them around.

More Of Park Guell Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl The tiled area, where people are sitting, is a huge area with tiled snaking seats all around it. From there you get a great view of Barcelona.
Park Guell Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Park Guell, another Antonio Gaudi creation, was originally planned as a sort of housing development. However, no one at the time bought into the idea. Eventually the property was given to the city and it is now a fantastic park full of strange buildings, and walkways.
Bibero Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl We stopped at this little cafe to get an espresso, and a little pastry. Martin ordered an espresso, Mary an orange juice, and Karen a xocollata, basically a warm cup of liquid chocolate that tasted a bit like warm home made chocolate pudding. We thought it would be hot chocolate,Continue reading “Bibero”
