I recently transplanted from the Flatirons of Boulder, CO to the medieval walled city of Girona, Spain. This lovely town in the Cataluya region definitely has its own particular magic. The large outdoor/indoor market is one of my favorite places. It's where this moment of magic came from. I visit the same vegetable stand a few times a week. The elderly women who runs the stand is kind enough to help me with my Spanish, and even teach me a little Catalan. This week as I was paying for my produce, she told me to wait, ran out to the front of the stand and plucked this branch from a bucket of water. "Un regalo para ti", a gift for you she said. It's sweet moments like this that help me to feel a little more at home, when home is so far away.
