What did you think? That I’d be the only one working in Madrid while the rest goes on vacation?
I’ll still be around and updated this page as often as I can in the coming two weeks or so, but it may be a little sporadic, I’m warning you. But maybe not. We’ll see. Just letting you know.
My alternative guide to Madrid is moving along, but it has gotten a little crazy of late as a few twists and turns have made it tough to catch up on everything, and there are a few details I’d rather not tell you about until I am fully aware of the facts. I do this for the safety of some, including myself! If I had guessed that, when I wandered up to the Fundación Juan March four weeks ago or so with the innocent intent on just rediscovering Madrid on a human scale, I’d been in the predicament I am in now, I just may have reconsidered. But such is the world of a teacher/writer who can’t keep his nose out of other people’s business! So the Desperate Artist’s Guide will continue, but beween good meals and siestas, and hopefully everything will turn out all right. I’m sure it will.
In the meantime I’ll be adding more to an upcoming book on my tumultuous relationship with Spanish, and other projects.
I just uploaded and made available an eBook version of my first book on Spain and Spanish Wine called “Let’s Open a Bottle” (for a nice price too) and my new books on the Camino de Santiago (both in Spanish and English) are just about ready, so hopefully they will be out no later than September 1st.
So, that’s the latest. I’ll just keep posting and rolling…and rolling and posting!
So, I am keeping busy and doing my best to buoy the struggling Spanish economy…both as a producer and consumer!
