Why are the best things in life, always the simplest?

After a hard day of climbing mountains, running and hiking all over Barcelona, trying not to die of rain induced hypothermia and going all day without food, because I am terrified of the “manteca”, “queso” and “leche” that might be in my food, I get to Park Güell and there is music, people, dancing and bubbles?!?!

I could write about how wonderful Gaudi’s park is, why trencadís is the greatest gift to the world, how amazing it is to see bits and pieces of ceramics and bottles be used to create wonderful images all around. I could wax on about how Gaudi was a mathematical genius, how he invented sliced bread and everything else – I think everyone in the world knows that. However the only thing that was passing through my mind today … for a bit, was how wonderful it was to be enchanted with the simplest things.

So simple, just some cords, soap, water and just watch people get lost in the glee.

Just unrestrained glee at trying pop the bubble. My thinking right now, when do we as adults lose that?

Just chasing the bubble …

However it is hard not to look on, enjoy the play in motion by adults and kids and be a little jealous of the innocence of it all.

Who doesn’t like bubbles … even scientifically engineered bubbles sent from the future to amaze me at Park Güell today?
