BLUE SKIES OVER VALENCIA IN APRIL
The weekend is over and it has been a lovely one indeed. The weather was sunny and cool and overall quite pleasant. For me the weekend was filled with friends and loved ones, wine, good food and conversation. And it seemed like everyone in Valencia was out in the street. All the bars were full. Every terrace on every corner or in the middle of the block was full to COVID regulated capacity. And of course we had to do it all before 1800 hours which is when the bars are mandated to close. There’s no sense in doing anything at night because our curfew begins at 2200 hours. So nights are for the tele…
I just want to say to my friends on this blog community that I am looking forward to another week of great posts from all of you and also to providing some posts as well that you might enjoy. It has been an interesting ride through this unique sort of experience, meaning the experience of writing a blog, of reading other people’s posts and commenting as well as getting to know some fine people from all over the world. I feel close to many blogger friends out there and I miss their entries when they take off for a few days or a few weeks. But we all do that, we must, after all we’ve got lives and things to do besides sitting in from of the portable and posting, reading and liking posts on the blogosphere.
But it is interesting and I like it, especially intercommunicating with a few good friends that always read, always comment and always support and encourage. I hope I am doing the same for them and I want to thank them. I want to tell them that it is an honour to be able to place before them my art, my poetry and my music and that every nod of approval I get from them is sincerely appreciated. The fact that they actually look, listen and read is something that leaves me humbled and quite happy. I also know they know who they are and how much I also enjoy reading their poetry, short stories, historical accounts, book reviews, album reviews, musical information, advice and fabulous travel articles with incredible photography. The whole time I have dedicated to this blog has been a learning experience in many, many ways and as well a pleasure as I have met lovely people.
So, today is the first day of the week and I just wanted to kick it off with these few words. My hopes, wishes and desires for this week are the same ones I have always, that there be peace in this world, that there be health and well-being for all and that we strive for happiness and walk far and away from hatred and violence.
