I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Cartuja Monastery Granada

Looks simple from the outside - and the monastery rooms are, but inside the chapel is just gob-smackingly baroque!It really is quite mind blowing. Unfortunately you couldn't take pics and I'm a good girl!

On searching google I found no pictures that did the interior any justice at all but there was this one of a statue that was quite amazing and we spent some time looking at.

Ah found some on flickr worth viewing them in original size.
This ontarioarchitecture.com site has a few more and info too.

If you go to Granada you should visit. We caught a bus saved us a lot of money against taking the proffered tour. To get to the monastery, you can catch buses 8 or C from the Gran Vía. This is also one of the stops on the City Sightseeing bus route.
