It's good to be back. It's my first time seeing Cirque du Soleil and I'm impressed. It's worth it. The costume, stage design, storytelling, not to mention the choreography - it's more than choreography, right? Since it's acrobatics. It's all so very creative, and 75 minutes were fleeting. I felt like I could be a child again.
There is no other reason for me to visit Andorra. I am foolish, diary. I thought I could come at the green area on the map and be in the forest. They're all walled off. I could not find an entrance to the forest. How ridiculous. I walked everywhere. One just can't go into the woods very easily.
I followed the big river Valira that coursed through the city for a while. I don't know. It doesn't make sense to live there if you can't go to the forest in any & all direction.
Andorra la Vella is all shops. One does not need more than an hour for that. It so happens I found myself in need of perfume. And here is the thing, diary. I don't "wear" perfume. I only spray it at home, so I can smell it. If it happens to linger when I'm out, then that's that. But there are certain fragrance I want to feel...
The Juicy Couture ones I tried last month smell different today. One of them smelled like nail polish. Lord no.
Now I have Magnetism from Escada, for fruity flavors. And Bonbon from Viktor & Rolf. It smelled great in the store, I just used now and it smells a bit different. Not as sweet as I remember. CDC's Black Pepper is on its way. I know it's for winter, but the chill pepper and leather smell will keep me focused.
You require cleanness, you require a clear mind. You require smell, taste, looks, functions. The beauties and fragrance of the world. The struggle as well as happiness of others. The movement of the world. I was away for two days and it looks as if the whole world has turned a round. A million things happened without my knowledge and it feels like I've missed out a ton. How does any of it work?
I'm traveling less and less, diary. Now I know more than ever that I have to be centered.
I'm sane, aware, tired. I got to know the country a bit better, diary. I had some thoughts.
