A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness

A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness

"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."

On our way home from Morocco we did a "rest stop" in Madrid. This broke up two long flights, and gave us a chance to see another country.

We arrived one day, had another full day to explore, and left for Denver on the third day.

We visited the Prado Art Museum, taking a tour that was supposed to get us in early. However, the Japanese had bought up all the early tickets. Our guide was able to help us maneuver around the large Japanese tour groups (about 30 tourists, their guide with a flag).

We were able to see the Catedral de Santa Maria la Real de la Almudena, a very impressive building, a relatively modern church started in 1883, but not completed until 1993.

This photo is of a Roma gypsy who was begging (with her cup). I told her I'd give her 5 Euros if she's let me take her photo. When she had the money she immediately walked away. When I yelled after her, she turned and waved.
