We rented a finca (farmhouse) overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. I think it cost us some absurdly low rent like $50 a month. It was lovely. Everywhere you walked was the scent of Rosemary since it grew everywhere.
This morning when I went out to feed the birds, there was something familiar about the light or the smell. I am not sure what it was but it triggered a flood of memories about that time and place in my life. I guess there are many similarities. A warm, dry climate. Lots of sun. No ocean of course, but still.....the memories were somehow brought to mind.
I only have one week left here. I am feeling rather sad about that. But when I go back I will ready the condo for sale and hopefully it will sell quickly so that we can move shortly after graduation.
Yesterday my friend Bob and I walked 3 miles in Sabino Canyon. I think that is the farthest I have walked in a very long time. Maybe ever. I hope to do more when I finally live here.
