Farewell Barcelona

One of the great joys of Barcelona was staying in the same hotel for the whole week, a stability made possible by the city’s first-rate transportation system, which will take you easily anywhere you want to go. We spent our last overcast 100_2658100_2666100_2673100_2677100_2669day at Montjuic, a hill overlooking Barcelona from which you can see the 1992 Olympic Stadium (photo below).

From there we went to the National Museum of Catalan Art, formerly the National Palace (photo on top) which has an art collection that would take weeks100_2657 to see reflectively.  We spent most of our time in the Renaissance/Baroque section, stopping along the way to see some special works by El Greco, Velasquez and a few others (photos 2,3, and 4).

My life has had three phases: one as a Jesuit seminarian, recorded in my 2015 memoir (Unsuitable Treasure: An Ex-Jesuit Makes Peace with the Past, Oak Tree Press); another as a college teacher and scholar of 19th century British Literature, best recorded in Coleridge's Progress to Christianity: Experience and Authority in Religious Faith (Associated University Presses, 1995); and finally my current phase as a retiree given to social media posts and photo commentary on my travels with my wife, Mary.
