Since I told you a good place to stay in Barcelona, I thought I'd share a few more images of why you might want to visit. These are all taken just a few blocks from the Hotel Curious, all of them in the area around the Museum of Contemporary Art. I loved the way architecture met and made public space, the way old met new, public private, and light and dark enhanced the way lines and curves moved through space and traced the changes of time through the play of shadow. . . .
I'll just let you look, shall I? No more commentary . . . My family gathers this afternoon at the cemetery to inter my mother's ashes in my brother's grave, where my dad's were interred 13 years ago. Then my sisters and I ( and a sister-in-law, like a sister really) are heading off for a girls' weekend, the first time in years (we had a weekend in Seattle back in 2010). Spa appointments have been booked. As has dinner in a very nice restaurant. coins will be flipped over who gets what bed in the house we've rented at the little resort town. The drive up is gorgeous enough and long enough to let us settle in together after those last few tears over our newly orphaned state. . .
It should be a great weekend. hope yours is too!
