So after my thoroughly depressing first post of being back in Estepa, I decided to have a bit of talk with myself. Enough is enough. It, whatever 'it' is, was affecting me too much to not at least try something, anything.

It got to the weekend, and as tempting as it was to sit an ponder over, and over, and over things (which never leads to anything good) I forced myself up & out of bed, looked up the word for turpentine / white spirit for my oils and decided to do what makes me happy again; paint. I went on a bit of a mission to try find it (but I did), taking my camera with me; something else I've found quite therapeutic - taking & editing photos, and tried to re-ignite my love for Spain.

I think this is one of my favourite photos I've taken so far, to me this is what Estepa is, the sunshine, the old people amazingly climbing this hill of a town, the white buildings, the benches, the peacefulness (apart from Mondays & Wednesdays when theres a bit of a rowdy market).. Everything.

Its a nice little spot there. 

And so, right now I'm feeling a little more content. I'd say theres a bit to go before I will feel settled again but this feeling is better, much better.
