Clave finishes dribble castle_8598

Last Sunday evening’s foray into what I’ll call Gaudi’s Dream made me realize: the famous Catalan Modernist architect and my son, El Surfeador, have a few things in common. One, they both made things that prompted me to go Wow. Two, obviously, neither of them was feeling the Legos anymore. Three, they both understood this Crucial Truth: if you build it, they will come.

Four, they both knew that while the act of building something is cool, the art of dribbling it is divine.

Ah, architecture. I love it! That sand castle is so cool! And the cathedral… breathtaking.

Thanks for your sweet comments over on my blog. I so appreciate you taking the time from your adventures and stopping by!

Take care today!

Karen, I love your blog! Your themes are so important, especially the power of recognizing the positive and rethinking/reconstituting our body language as a form of self-empowerment. LOVED those videos. And the one with the little girl on the bathroom counter! My older daughter showed that one to me a while back, and we adore it! I think of your blog as an effort to redirect us all back to our own bathroom counters, where we can look at ourselves in the mirror and exclaim “Yeah!”–not just because we’re okay with our physical selves but, more important, because we’re good with the WHO that we’re staring at. So thank you. Besitos, a big one for each cheek.
