From Madrid: To live well and love truly

From Madrid, Spain, September 22, 2010

Madrid reminds me of an elegant woman of regal bearing in the autumn of her days, sharing her stories and charming all those who come to see her. The plazas (there are thousands of them), fountains and gates welcome you into a world of romantic evenings spent hand-in-hand. The food tells you of farms and vineyards from long ago days. The trees and sidewalks invite you to un-hurried walks accompanied by all sorts of serendipity. The paintings and sculptures leave you wondering at what manner of love it is that leads men and women to create things so beautiful. It is a world that shows you pictures of lives that lived well and loved truly.
