"The sky is the daily bread of the eyes." ( Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Something is missing. I've been on holidays. I had my time. Even so, feel like can't adopt myself to the life I used to have. Even people I used to know look different to me. Wonder, if it's a "post-vacational" syndrome or the time for a new change???
"Habit and routine have an unbelievable power to waste and destroy." (Henri de Lubac)
After many years living here I still feel like I've been fooled... Just try to draw a picture in your head, when you hear somebody saying "Las Palmas". The vision is green, lush and fresh. At least that's what all touristic brochures are showing to you, and that was the fruit of my imagination as well. I used to live in Spain before, so the islands couldn't be so different, right?
But in my daily life all those promised palms looks more like that :
But believe me, it's not so bad, if you learn to look around! The palms are still here. Actually they are everywhere!
Do you have any vision about "Las Palmas"?
"What I see in Nature is a magificent structure what we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism." (Albert Einstein)
I am not very happy. Neither I am unhappy. The adopting and adjusting takes some time. The green is changed by grey. The fresh replaced by hot. The rain is dried by the sun. The dark evenings indoors rearranged into night's softness in my terrace. But I can do it! Slowly, step by step, day after day, thread after thread... The palms didn't grow up in a one day either...
