Sigh. I’m worn out.
I have no oomph to write anything.
This is a Very Quickie Thing I drew while looking out of the window of the Starbucks near Ann’s apartment. 5 minutes. 10 minutes. The shops all have metal things (I can’t think of what they’re called right now) that slide over the doors and windows when they are closed for the day and they are all covered either with random graffiti or graphics relating to the business inside. Very colorful and compelling. Even the junkie messy ones. The one on the left is a graphic of a wonky house with what look like cards behind – a house of cards(?) – that I like a lot but I didn’t want to reproduce someone else’s art and I didn’t have any time anyway. The one on the right consists of scribbles and multiple flyers layered over each other. Strangely attractive. Shutters! Is that what they’re called?

Anyway, Gwen and I had a very nice (delish, Just up my alley, Made me happy and full for the whole day) breakfast with friends of a New York friend of mine. Silvia and Albert. In a restaurant just a step or two from the Arc de Triumph. I kid you not. I’m tired but I still know where I am. I wish we could have had more time with them but someone was arriving today and Gwen had arranged to meet her at the hotel.

Oh well. Since I’m too tired to write today I won’t tell you that I split off from everybody and walked to, and found, Placa Reial, in order to join a FREE walking tour of the Old City, learned all sorts of interesting historical facts which will probably be gone by the time I wake up later (it’s after midnight) had time to kill so I did that with a two scoop chocolate ice cream cone and sketched a journal page. The tour was 2-1/2 hours and was EXCELLENT. the last site was the church where I attended the late Easter vigil and I found my way back to the hotel. Well. I kinda took a Very Long route but…I didn’t get lost and didn’t have to backtrack.

We had lunch here.

And remember. I’m also documenting things with journal spreads so forgive Monday’s scribble.
