Spain #96

This one is a bit of a "ringer"....we did not see a lot of ice cream....but got VERY spoiled with fabulous gelato. So, a small series tonight of food oriented photos....combining ice cream, oranges and octopus. Oranges in Spain, Valencia oranges are ubiquitous. In fact, in the mornings (and other meals as well), if orange juice was not fresh squeezed, it was a surprise.

On a more current theme, as an American, I would like to thank all of you who have been posting and commenting about George Floyd's murder specifically, and the nature of our second original sin--slavery (our first of course being genocide against the native people living here). By chance, I watched a late night TV host last night, who went through a progressive monologue that started with how did we ever get someone as dangerous as we have for president....and moved at the end to a talk about white superiority (not that we are---that we carry it unconsciously inside almost all of us--white people, black people, and police). And that as white people, like everyone, the all have problems...but one of them is not the color of our skin. It does not, pretty much ever, enter our consciousness on a daily basis as we go through our lives....for people of color in this society, and particularly for men, it comes up every day.

If you have not seen it, go look at John Dudler's black upload a couple of days ago. Very eloquent.

And I would like to thank Isabel for her UA for my last set...and her set today is amazing.

As many of you know, we have had some serious vandalism and looting here in the last few days. Friends of mine whose jewelry shop is about a mile from my studio were broken into over the weekend, and three of their cases were destroyed..they asked me to make new ones for them....and I need to work on pricing tonight so I can give them a figure for their insurance company tomorrow. So, I may not be able to look at many of your photo tonight. My loss.

Peter

Gelato---common everywhere these days---We lived in Portugal for awhile and one of the things we missed most was Ice Cream-----until we discovered "Gelato".

YUM!
Wonderful set Peter well done.
