18 Days, 18 Time Zones and a Grand Masquerade Ball

Yes that's what Mike and I have been up to over the past few weeks. We spent part of the time in the Caribbean, followed by 6 days crossing the Atlantic which for me was the most exciting part. We sailed away surrounded by glassy blue seas, watched flying fish, whales and dolphins and saw blank beauty - sea and sky. We rounded our time off sailing in the Med. I did spend some time working - honest!
There was plenty of inspiration and I found myself enjoying writing. I'm hoping to include some of those musings in a canvas I've got planned. I was also totally transfixed by the work of Gaudi. After spending time with a guy in Barcelona who was a Gaudi groupee I found my brain ticking over about the genius of the man- staggering - I came home with scrap pages laid out in my mind with hints of Gaudi thrown in. All I need now is some time to get lost in my own thoughts!!!
I shall leave you with a sample I made recently ... stamps are available from Graphicus
