El somní d’una d’estiu Sala Tarafa de Granollers☀️ gracias a todas☀️experiencia increíble escolamontserratmontero soyraquel alfonsnieto miriammarcetfarreny gracias OskarLuko para los fotos ❤️ There’s a school at the top of a hill outside Barcelona. To the west you can see the jags and peaks of Monserrat mountain and yellow mimosa fills your eyes and senses. This is a special school. Una Escuela Especial. So called because the children have special needs. But when I first arrived two years ago the ‘special’ hit me with a force of nature and every cell of my being wanted to return again and again whatever the odds. The special is the people. The teachers with their wide open hearts, souls and spirits – funny, welcoming and kind, hugging and kissing the children as if it were christmas every day. And the children having that as their normal. Their normal is special. And the games I’ve made – that require hands, bodies and souls to be in contact with each other – land with these people as naturally as the blossoms land on the soil of their hills. And every time I’ve been in this place, I’ve found new ways of seeing and listening and understanding how to communicate. A week ago, twenty children and eleven actors performed El somni d’una d’estiu to an audience of just over one hundred people in an ancient medieval hospital in Granollers. Light shone through the high windows and the children’s light of courage, humour and pride shone into all of us. The audience are mainly parents and grandparents and siblings and aunts and uncles and neighbours of the children – so full of love. Many of whom I recognise now as this is the third time I’ve made a performance with their children. And through our tears and our hugs it never feels real, it feels like a dream Like far off mountains turned into clouds… where everything seems double… and I am not sure I am awake… My thanks to Alex Casanovas for seeing what I do and believing in me. One person believing another is enough to create miracles. 🍐Kelly Hunter
TWO | SANTA FE, NM The Land of Enchantment - I’ve been visiting Santa Fe with family and friends my entire life. I have vivid memories around its central plaza, hiking and learning to ski in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. My happy place I go to in meditation is amongst its valleys and cool streams. Santa Fe is home many to Native American people and their art which I adore. This is a place I will return to over and over again. Its adobe walls, vibrant colors, and kind people always seem to welcome me with arms wide open. We had the fortune of getting to stay at a friend’s beautiful home as a base to hike miles into the mountains, discover the many dimensions and portals of meow__wolf and get blissed at tenthousandwavesjapaneseresort With much coercing christine_anderson_yoga made me a very reluctant fan of ice baths!! So much so we stopped back through for a second visit on our way home. 100% worth it! Oh, and if you’ve forgotten the ancient art of putting sunglasses on your chin and lying upside down so your hair looks like a beard - let me remind you in the last video. The playful theme continued!! Santa Fe’s medicine is the creativity, art, and deep breath of nature.
'To move, to breathe, to fly, to float; to gain all while you give; to roam the roads of land remote, to travel is to live.'
-Hans Christian Andersen
I went to a place
More than one thousand and six hundred metres above see level
Where nature seduces you
Teasing all your senses
Luring you in with little bits till you Find yourself begging for more
Longing for satisfaction
I went to a place
Where monkeys welcomed you in their numbers
Not threatened by you
Acknowledging your presence with warmth and animal kingdom's hospitality
Here, locals welcome you with open arms
Men waving at you
Women smiling at you
Looking at you with keen interest, fascinated by your city apparels
I went to a place
Where a snake like river separated landscapes
Where a boat made of woods, mounted by kids not up to half my age
Help the living and non living get across
Where women wore baskets on their backs
And motorcycles carried loads meant for trucks alone .
A place where people drank from springs and streams
Where bottled and sachet water was a luxury
Yet people rode on horses as easily as they would cars in the hustle and bustle of any large city .
I went to a place where the terrain tested your endurance .
And you .
Counting it all joy
When your feet aches
And your eyes water
When you hands go numb
And weariness envelops you
Where at the brink of giving up Nature whispers again .
. 'I have more
I have more' .
I went to a place with sultry mountains and peaks you dare not count
You get so high up
You stand shoulder to shoulder with them
Adorned by lush green grasses and trees
These views highlighted by beautiful flowers
With colours that make the rainbow seem like child's play .
I went to a place where the grass is always green
All year round and nothing changes
Tell me how your heart could break with such certainty
A place where chasing waterfalls promises a fulfilling reward
Here, a lake welcomes you
Long enough to accommodate your worries
Deep enough to drown your sorrows
And wide enough to hug you with great compassion

The Serengeti National Park is a Tanzanian national park in the Serengeti ecosystem in the Mara and Simiyu regions. It is famous for its annual migration of over 1.5 million white-bearded (or brindled) wildebeest and 250,000 zebra and for its numerous Nile crocodileand honey badger .
**Serengeti National Park

The Maasai people had been grazing their livestock in the open plains of eastern Mara Region , which they named "endless plains," for around 200 years when the first European explorer, Austrian Oscar Baumann , visited the area in 1892. The name "Serengeti" is an approximation of the word used by the Maasai to describe the area, #siringet , which means "the place where the land runs on forever"
The first American to enter the Serengeti, Stewart Edward White , recorded his explorations in the northern Serengeti in 1913. He returned to the Serengeti in the 1920s and camped in the area around Seronera for three months. During this time, he and his companions shot 50 lions.
Because the hunting of lions made them scarce, the British colonial administration made a partial game reserve of 800 acres (3.2 km 2 ) in the area in 1921 and a full one in 1929. These actions were the basis for Serengeti National Park, which was established in 1951.
The Serengeti gained more fame after the initial work of Bernhard Grzimek and his son Michael in the 1950s. Together, they produced the book and film #SerengetiShallNotDie , widely recognized as one of the most important early pieces of nature conservation documentary.
To preserve wildlife, the British evicted the resident Maasai from the park in 1959 and moved them to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area . There is still considerable controversy surrounding this move, with claims made of coercion and deceit on the part of the colonial authorities.
