Barcelona 1

I have fallen so in love with Barcelona! and I haven’t even been to the beach yet!

this is mostly because of gaudi, an architect and visionary who created these sumptuous space travel underwater looking magic buildings and spaces all over this city. he is teaching me another lesson about creating: if there are things within you which have no translation in your world, it is that much more imperative that you articulate them in tangible form. to introduce something new to the world, which is the best argument for why you exist, and to show others that there are still new perspectives to be explored, that humanity’s greatest contributions of beauty, of the sacred, of love, may be before us still.

I also love the architecture, walking the city, the calcotes, the tapas, the familiarity to other European cities, the unique mixture of this particular place, the squatting movements, the friends of friends I have gotten to eat and play with, the way spanish is not the first language here at all – I’m learning a lot, a hot mess of words keeps coming out of my mouth.

still having a hard time relaxing, so today I tossed my plans out the window.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
