With love from Spain

Hola amigos, amigas, friends, freaking-out ones, calm ones, and storm-weatherers!


Wanted to post a little something while I am working on my next longer post- some beautiful photos and cultural input from Spain to showcase its beauty, zest for life, and abundance. I had my birthday here in Southern Spain, where I am currently based, some days ago and wanted to create some positive vibes and images centered around one of my two countries of origin… counterbalancing the mass-media´s approach to everything and the current mainstream- mind-focus, on a teeny tiny scale.


I have been a bit more absent from blogging than usual due to these weird occurrences that we all have been witnessing, but am stoked about everyone who continues to share positive stories, travel posts, haikous, poems, Street-Art… refreshing and much needed!! Basically, speaking for me personally, I am currently attracted to reading and interacting with anything that doesn´t mention the C-word (haha, you know which word I mean!!), or expand on private issues (because we all are going through something at the moment, and vibes are contagious…), but that focuses on creating restoring, healing, positive, and uplifting vibes. Maybe you can feel me on that one? 🙂


Without further ado, some good vibes from gorgeous Spain!

First of all, check out this fun post about the Feria de Abril I wrote a few years back, which is a perfect example of Spain´s inherent joy, knack for a good time, and rich culture.

Then, you can embark on an exquisite musical journey with one of Spain´s best ever guitar players, Paco de Lucia in this (kinda Seventies throwback) video.

Or, indulge in some class A Flamenco singing by Spain´s very own singing legend Isabel Pantoja.

Dear reader, hope you enjoyed this little post! Are there any positive news or insights you wish to share? Maybe a beautiful image, song, or interesting fact about your country? As always, would love to hear from you! Let´s keep this a place of inspiration, upliftment, and joy, and give ourselves a break. Media CAN heal! 🙂 Much love.

  1. How lovely to see you and hear from you this morning. You have been greatly in my thoughts. The beauty you share brings me warm smiles and sends me to turn on the music and dance my feelings out. The flowers are stunning and you have some that don’t grow here where I am. Thank you for that wonderful treat. And I’ve been meaning to come and tell you how much I enjoyed your travel book you shared. Slowing down and being comfortable where you find yourself. A perfect message for anytime, especially now. I’d like to read it over again. I’m not sure that I’m downloading it properly…technology often eludes me 🙃😂. So so happy to hear from You!! Please take care. With love and hugs 🥰❤️🤗

      • Hello gorgeous, it’s wonderful to read your words again. I can understand your need to be still and to want to go within during these stormy and turbulent times. We need to honour what our soul needs. For me the answer has been nature and being outside. And music. In fact yes, I did film myself very recently playing my guitar (albeit very rusty) out in my garden. Are you on Instagram? That’s where you’ll find me. Anyway, I LOVE the idea of creating healing and an uplifting media company, what an awesome dream. You take care of yourself my cara amica. Surround yourself with light and healing thoughts, with visions that lift your soul. Thinking of you and sending you lots of warm bear hugs and a mountain of love. xxxxxx ❤️🙏💚

      • Dear friend, thanks for your kind and beautiful words here. I love your words here “We need to honour what our soul needs”. I could not agree more! And yes, where would we be without nature and music? Will head over to your Instagram these days and take a cheeky look at your performance, very cool you uploaded it! 🙂 Also love your sweet wishes here, and all the warm bear hugs are gladly received and warm my heart! So much love y abrazos back to you you gorgeous lady and human being!!! xxxxx ❤️🙏💚

  8. The perfect post for me to read today 🙂 The vibes are all so positive from your words, and then you match them with some incredible photos ~ the colors and mood of the photos makes me want to settle back and enjoy the world around me. I like the photo from Gibraltar, that is a place I’ve always wanted to go there because of its history and what I’ve read. The paintings of the flamenco dancers, you can feel the movement 🙂 Wish you a great day 🙂
