This is a picture that I bought along with a couple of others from a market in Barcelona, Spain in 1982. It is one of my favorite treasures that I brought back with me from my travels over a 14 month period to Europe and the US, and Spain was one of my favorite countries that I visited.
It is titled "Deseo" which in English mean desire. A few years later I would meet and marry the man that I 'deseado' who just happened to be from Spain!
I sometimes wonder if this picture was telling me something? Or maybe not...
I have been enticed & inspired by a friend to participate in this journey. We are well into 2009, so my photo blog will be a yearlong one – still 1 photo a day for 365 days but just not 2009.
I considered the idea of a theme a day (which I love & was very tempted to do) but what initially encouraged me to begin my own photo blog was the spontaneous, beautiful & somewhat mundane photos of a friend, her family and their daily life. The insights of her & her family that she allows us "warmed the cockles of my heart"
I only hope that my photo diary will provide the same to someone as well.
(Warm the cockles of one's heart :
idiomatic - To provide happiness, to bring a deeply-felt contentment).
