Granada ~ The Alhambra … to sigh for

“In Spain the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world.”
― Federico García Lorca

“And so I sit here in the last light, upon this stone, among these olive trees, gazing out across a valley towards a distant hill; and there it stands, the glory of the Moors, their triumphant masterpiece and … last redoubt. The Alhambra … palace of interlocking forms and secret wisdom, of pleasure courts and water gardens, that monument to a lost possibility that nevertheless has gone on standing, long after its conquerors have fallen. …”
― Salman Rushdie, The Moor’s Last Sigh

About Joy Hendrickson

I am an adherent of the theory that we don't know what we don't know. I enjoy all things literary, visual, mysterious, and just beyond our grasp.
