My Dear Friends and Family,
Do you remember back in September when I wrote that I was trying to learn my smother-mother lessons…?
“… I have three daughters. My oldest daughter and her husband and their 16-year old daughter decided to move to Barcelona for a year…”
Don’t tell anyone, but I flew to Barcelona anyway….
This is what I did learn.

Traveling to foreign cultures is a balm for the spirit.
No twitter. No tweet. HEAVEN!!
Travel offers perspective. Try this one for size…
Every country carries it’s own political baggage. At different times in history, some of that baggage is heavier that at other times. For me, the week away lightened my overloaded brainball.
I recommend trying it… and the tapas!
P.S A little smother-mother goes a long way… like, over 3000 miles.
