Lisboa, the Eternal City experienced in the feminine


Every time I walk through the City, it becomes apparent that it is ALIVE!

It has its own ways, moods and atmosphere...

All you have to do to discover them, is to walk through its streets, using all your senses...

There is such a JOY in the incredible LIGHT that bathes this City!
The streets stroll down its seven hills, with their colourful houses,
the trees and the pervasive sounds of LIFE all around...



In perpetual games of light and shadow, this Mysterious, Feminine Being reveals itself...
Its Beauty canot but be perceived by the one who looks and sees!


All the nuances of colour, light, warmth, perfumed wind and lively sounds wrap us in
their embrace... It is like a trip to an undetermined time - somewhere in the past,
and yet incredibly close to the heart-beat, happening now, right now!



A City shared by so many...
Not only the women and men, but all those from Past Memories and Future Dreams,
the Citizens of the City in the Becoming...
If only the stones of the city could speack, what stories would they tell!
With passion and luminous clarity would they tell us of their age old stories...

Thank you dear Isabel, what a great joy it is to feel love for the place we call home. The rooftops of Lisbon look so warm and clean it is clearly a city built with passion and a love of beauty. Coastal towns are especially lovely as they flow downhill towards our Mother the sea. Peace be with you, Travel safely!

Dear Isabel

Your writing is magical. You have a great gift in how you express the love inside you. Same for the way you capture images. Absolutely loved it.

I haven't started a blog yet. Need Ideas... You'll be among the first to know when it happens.

Love.
