About the necessity of public benches


Who, today, will sit on this bench, ready to receive new stories, the emotion of tears and stealthy hands, regrets and hopes, homelessness and the insolence of seagulls, while watching the ocean.


In the trail


In the natural world,  tamed,

just right,

and the light at the end of the trail


Wordless (5) Mumbles



To climb and to live

very sunny,
And hear one’s  breath (it’s living).

granada5Farther inland,  is the beautiful city of Granada, located 780 meters above the sea. I am fortunate to spend a few days in the Albayzin, the old neighborhood facing the famous palace Al ‘hambra. In this district the small winding streets, where one can get lost very easily, literally and figuratively, it is sometimes easy to imagine how people lived there a few centuries ago. Small businesses arise around every street, in long narrow buildings where goods are packed. Small tapas and good wine affluence only add to the charm of this little corner of the past that has managed to survive this far. Here, pedestrians are kings and big monstrous cars are struggling to make their way through the narrow streets where walkers will not easily give way.


At the Cafe

for my  appointment at the cafe.

All dressed up

for a serious  chat

about mortgages and bills.

Unpredictable clash:

 A sunny distraction

through the wiring of the fence.
