agave, Gaudi, past


Posted by Picasa On some low cliffs above the bay called San Sebastian in Sitges, agave and prickly pear grow side by side on the edge of  the Mediterranean.

Curious that the sand castles which children  build on the beach here  look like the towers of Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, the still unfinished cathedral down the coast in Barcelona.

"I tend to live in the past", said the San Francisco Chronicle, columnist, Herb Caen, "because most of my life is there." Reassuring to one of my age, I think to myself, but really no excuse.

Sets a very low premium on new discoveries.
