Today is Sunday, and the travel day to the yoga retreat, and here in Spain it is also Mother's Day - which apparently isn't a set day worldwide, which makes sense when you think about it, I just never had. Mother's Day in Spain is also just a wee bit different, as it's a crazily Catholic country, and Catholics are super into THEE Mother aka The Virgin Mary. Either way, you should call your Mama and say GRACIAS.
On the surface today was a BEAUTIFUL day in a BEAUTIFUL country surrounded by BEAUTIFUL people. But inside I have been a sea of raging, semi-negative emotions. I don't people well. And finding myself "trapped" in very intimate situations with a number of personalities has been absolutely exhausting for me.
The beautiful garden with the strolling paths, shady trees, and stone tables and benches where I found myself was up some steep steps (mandatory to anywhere in El Gastor) and the landscaped area was situated on top of a building with the word "Tanatorio" on it. It was one of those things that I noticed, and even semi-remembered, but to me had no meaning at the time. It wasn't until later today, while driving back to the resort once again after our entire group had had dinner back in town, I asked one of our hosts - Que significa Tanatorio?***
