Gratitude List 24/02/2018
An amazing day in rural Catalonia. Traditional food cooked in a traditional way on a farm with a mountainous backdrop. Bliss.
Cool but beautiful weather.
A feast fit for a King. Enjoyed with beautiful and incredibly generous people.
Knowing we can come back and visit again and again and again.
Aeroplanes. Its still seems a miracle to me that they get off the floor!!!
My girlfriend’s open-mindedness and willingness to change.
Central heating, we had one day without it. It wasn’t even that cold but it was cold enough to make it uncomfortable.
Farmers and the hard work they put in to provide food on our table.
A week without TV. Its amazing what can be achieved without the distractions.
Music and the attached memories.
Such a beautiful village just south of Barcelona. So peaceful. Amazing community spirit. Huge gratitude to the simple life.

To the balcony in the sun.
The heat on my face.
To the collared dove nesting just 15 feet away.
To the sounds of footsteps and chatter below.
The colour of the roof tiles.

My peaceful thoughts.
To the simple life.
