    thank you for sharing this pearl!!!
    this was exactly my this year “christmas greetings email” which I sent to ALL of my friends.
    I found it – somehow – time ago and it became my “balm” for difficult moments.

    wish you a very peaceful and joyous christmas.

    This brought tears. I am a classical musician and this is what it should be and almost never is.

    Look at those kids!

    I am a great follower of your blog, and it is amazing to read in a USA based blog something i had not seen from a town 20km away from home.

    Keep it up, i’ll try to push out more comments
    Cheers from Barcelona

    Hey Bernat in Barcelona. You’re living in one of my favorite cities: lucky you! I’ve spent many wonderful hours in the markets there. Thanks for writing.
