Do you have a favorite healing place? Today I share with Miriam & her readers at Kindred Earth Botanicals about my sweet Alhambra in Granada, Spain.
"When I finally arrived in Spain, the Alhambra greeted me. It sits upon one of the many hills of Granada, overlooking a sea of white houses where the scent of olive oil hangs in the air almost constantly. Surrounding the Alhambra is perhaps the only woods-type area in the whole city, which fueled my longings for New England autumn while I was studying there. As frequently as I could, I would walk to the Alhambra, hike up the hills, walk around its walls, go into all of the parts that were open access as much as possible. I'd bring my sketchbook, draw the slants and curves of architecture, the gathering of people, the tiny houses in the hillside. I'd listen to music on my portable CD player; PJ Harvey's Is This Desire album was pretty much my soundtrack for the trip."
