In this skin…



I'm significantly closer to 30 than I am to 20 and still, I find that much of the time, I feel much like a child.  Perhaps it is just an incurable case of Peter Pan Syndrome, or maybe it is just that as I'm getting older, I've begun to care less about what people think about me.  In any case, I find that each day, I learn more about myself and while when I'm not on vacation in a lovely beach town in the south of Spain (as I am in these photos) I work almost non-stop and sleep hardly at all, when I am relaxed, I am now able to really let myself be relaxed… and make silly faces and dance on a bench in front of a gargantuan crowd of Spanish secondary school students as they swarm from their school and onto the shore.  

I can definitely tell you that 10 years ago, I would not have been willing (though I definitely would have been able) to do a full leg extension in a public place in a swim suit and a tunic.  I also would have very much wanted to wear the snazzy, hippie chic (thanks White Plum Boutique/SunFrog Shirts) that I assembled for the day, but I can think of few times in my life that I'd ever felt so comfortable in my own skin. 

… and so… please enjoy some snaps from the sun kissed city of Tarragona, Spain! 









… see what I mean about being more comfortable in my skin?  I can't say that I know anyone else who has done the splits over a Roman aqueduct!

    1. I think there is something really great about staying young forever… but I'm probably a bit partial…
