Coming Out of the Dark

My friend Carole thinks this should be designated a holiday.  So I’ve decided that from this day hence, 26 August will be known as the “Dia de la Luz” (Day of the Light).  Jerry and I will have to get ourselves a paso so we can be processed through the streets of Sevilla every year on the backs of eight (at least) burly young men.

In case you’ve missed my point, we have electricity in our apartment!

ONE OF THE BANDS WE SAW ACCOMPANYING ONE OF THE VIRGINS IN JULY.
I MIGHT HAVE THEM AUDITION FOR THE FIRST ANNUAL “DIA DE LA LUZ” IN 2012.

Now, I’m waiting — for two days — for Movistar installation to phone.  I’m learning what “very quickly” means in Movistar-speak.  No landline.  No internet.  No TV.  But we have luz!!!  And there’s a Starbucks a few streets away with free WiFi.  We’ll manage.

    You took the word right out of my mouth!

    Craig:
    We'll move in tomorrow. Hotel is already paid for and no desire to rush to pack up our mess. So happy!

    J&L:
    Unfortunately, they've already got a Virgin of the Luz, or I would have tried to claim it.

    Mark:
    Thanks!

    David:
    Hmmm… a mojito tonight. What a good suggestion.

  2. Mitch,

    Dia de la Luz with a procession no less, how truly grand it all would be. Now all that is need would be a Papal canonization, Saint Mitch – patron saint of Luz. All joking aside I am glad to hear (read) that you guys finally got the luz on. Hope it’s all down to just packing your suitcases at the hotel and the move is complete. – gary

  3. Yippee! Here's what they say in France: Petit à petit, l'oiseau fait son nid. It means: Little by little, the bird builds it's nest.

  4. Cindy:
    Almost. One more night here, we've decided.

    sophie…^5:
    I won't hold you to that promise!

    Gary:
    What do you mean all joking aside?!? I've been counting on canonization.
    All that's left of importance is internet/phone/TV, and that's beginning to look like the "luz"!
