A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

On to Girona

This village may have a few 'independentistas' in it

Upon entering the outskirts of Girona, these two Punjabi lads,  Love and Harman,  cheerfully showed me the way  to where I needed to go
The Ter River and Girona

A flower festival was happening in Girona while I was there

My first host, Gloria, and her dog, Rica. Gloria teaches free dance and corporal expression at the  Universitat de Girona

On the anniversary of Spain's Occupy movement, a small group occupies one of Girona's  squares

My second hosts in Girona, Àurea and Quim, both English teachers. As always, my hosts  in Girona provided me with a warm and welcoming place I could temporarily call home.
