Doing spells and air bending as usual. Montserrat.

Hoy me despido de Altea, con un gran beso caluroso y agridulce. Callejee sin prisa por todo el pueblo. Con su infinidad de calles que sorprenden con geranios y jazmines, portales de madera y rejas que adornan las típicas casas. Mi cuerpo se va bañada de sol y mar, alimentada de naranjas de patio y café, y mi alma llena de vidas que se que he conocido en una pasada.

I’ve been really good lately with writing and not putting ideas off for later. Recently I’ve had this tendency of coming up with something but being “too busy” to just sit there and plow it out on paper, so I’d just write the title or idea at the top of a page and say I’d get back to it.

Progress. Great!

Except that now I’m left with gaps and blank holes in my journal every few pages. This can’t continue.

So for the last few days of my spring break I am dedicating to ‘filling in the gaps’. Literally and metaphorically.

Also, the dozens of postcards I have yet to mail out.

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

Turista, tú que curioso, recorres nuestro planeta. Detente y sube a esta plaza que es la diadema de Altea. Y desde la balconada del bosque de su meseta, verás un campo de edén que cerca la esbelta bernia y creerás ver del cielo, un trocito, aquí en la tierra. Tal vez te canse el subir, pero bien vale la pena.

After exploring Valencia, Alicante and Elche, I finally reached Altea; a city I’ve been dreaming of for the last year. So blessed and proud of myself for having accomplished this selfishly, for the sole purpose to be still and quiet the mind.
Después de haber explorado Valencia, Alicante y Elche he finalmente llegado a Altea, una ciudad en la que he soñado visitar durante un año. Me siento bendecida y orgullosa de mí misma por haber logrado esto egoístamente, con el propósito de estar quieta y acallar la mente.

I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate 900 per cent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes.

Days after a bottle of wine, the world is just too bright and impossibly balanced.

..and one week later we found peace above the city, where it hums so beautifully.

Spent my rainy Sunday laying in bed eating saltine crackers and daydreaming on the internet & I don’t regret it one bit.

sondern. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

It’s so nice to get out of the city. Tossa de Mar.
