An old potato?

"A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams."   (John Barrymore) 

So, no regrets yet. Still dreaming! Sometimes maybe too much, that forget to blog ;) And what about the picture? It's just an old potato...  La papa canaria...

The Darkness

It is the light, not the darkness that frightens us.  "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."    (Martin Luther King Jr.)

The Missing Ingredient?

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???

Las Palmas

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"?

Under the Palm Tree

"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)

The Miracle?

When I left my home-land, it was foggy. When I woke up here, it was... foggy! Don't think I ever seen that on  the island... The Heavens love me, right?

Just Do It!

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...

The Last Green Vision...

Everything has an end. My green happiness too. What's left, only the treads of nice memories...
