That was a week that was!

The Hotel Pool

The Dunes

 

I had a beautiful weeks holiday..

 Just what we both needed, to relax in some sunshine, and recharge both our batteries..

Thank you for all of your lovely comments and graphics that you posted on my guestbook while I was away..

Our holiday destination was the Gran Canaries..

A very pleasant island with some very, very friendly local people.

 

People are what I spent my time observing, all shapes, all sizes, all ages.

All Different.

I saw a very well groomed lady who was obviously travelling alone, and somehow managed to sit near to us where ever we went.. She didn’t speak much English, But we always exchanged pleasantries.. I figured that our energies must be in balance, or that we exchanged them, as I always felt peacefulness in her presence. Maybe she did in mine?

Then there was the Young Down’s Syndrome boy, he must have been around 14yrs old.. He travelled with his Mum and younger brother and sister.. Nothing stopped him from helping his Mum from setting the cutlery in its right place, or bringing her coffee, having done better than I at negotiating the coffee machines.. (as my first attempt I got hot water J) He was very serious and all grown up.. I never did see the father figure in their group!..

And then there was the lively 80yr old… A lady of wealth, from her white hair gathered up in jewelled combs to her diamond rings, to her dancing shoes. For Dance she did.. And she didn’t care she didn’t have a partner, she would waltz herself around the other couples with a serene smile upon her face and love each step she danced.. As she loved her swimming daily too, this put my own efforts to shame. And imagine everyone’s delight when upon our last evening, a new elderly mail guest asked her for a dance, and she floated around the dance floor as if her steps had been made to measure into his.. We all applauded..And she bowed gracefully in gratitude.

Then there was a young boy around the age of 6, who had his night made when a acrobatic group called ‘African Steps’ asked him for his help, he was lifted high and swung around with a grin that said.. “Look at me Mum I’m flying”… And Mum and Dad and Gran and Granddad looked in pride as their cameras flashed.

And then there was the hotel staff, so pleasant always obliging always smiling, when to be honest, I would have grimaced in some instances with rude guests.

The lady’s who made up our rooms each day… Singing and laughing..With always a pleasant Smile in their greetings..

And then there were the young couples, the mature couples, and the elderly couples, all holding hands,, Love was all around… If one looked for it..

Even the pigeons flew in pairs, and we watched a female pigeon search through endless pieces of dried grass, picking each piece up in her beak to discard it, until she found one the correct length, and off she’s fly to her nest in the tree, to return for another and another.. 

The Stray Cats too were all well fed, some by hotel staff, and others by holiday makers buying tins of cat food and water, and they would sit and purr their contentment back at you..

And of course you’ve probably all met one of these! A hotel guest who was arrogant, who thought they owned the place, who was loud and obnoxious to their spouse. One of these self important men had four towels he strategically placed for him and his partner, reserving the best of ‘His’ sunshine for morning and afternoon Sun. He constantly smoked huge Havana cigars, which he blew much to the annoyance of Poolside sunbathers; Just to make them move further away from him I’m sure. Plus he had the waiters jumping through hoops..

But for his presence, I wouldn’t have looked at how sad this man really was..And How rich I was..   For I felt if we took this man’s wealth away, what would he be?  And I know if I didn’t have a penny to my name tomorrow, Ok I may find it difficult, But I know I have the love of a family, And I Know that Each of us are connected, Yes even to this man who was arrogant, Each coming to Earth for lessons and Journey’s we all interact and need to learn from, each touching each other’s energy for however brief and encounter, All learning, travelling upon our paths

 

For a week I almost obliterated the real world out.

Seeing mainly the Good in people…

Thank you Great Spirit

For allowing me the privilege

Happy Holidays when your turn comes!

    Oh, great pictures! Hotel pool looks great! Glad you had a beautiful time. Enjoy!And thanks for stopping by and kind comments. About your actual blog comment on my space: Psychotrophic drugs and psychotherapy must go together. Some troubles can get better with just psychotherapy, but some of the others need drugs definitely. I am not a psychiatrist, I am a psychologist but I just can say surely, some people came to me after using drugs for years but they were just made no progress in all those years. After psychotherapy sessions, their psychiatrists revised their prescriptions. Some of them gave the drugs up too.Love and peace, Zeynep xx

    What an amazing vacation you had! The way you have captured the feelings of the place and the people truly paints a picture. It\’s interesting how we observe others and reflect. Sad that there is always one who is a little challenging to the spirit but who also teaches us (or reminds us) of what inner richness we have. We all need reminding occasionally. I\’m glad that you feel re juvenated. I can foresee great creativity flowing… Love and Light to you. Jx
