After the invasion of Granada in 1492 by King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella I, things changed in Granada.
One can debate how liberal the emirate had been, but it certainly didn’t get better. Whenever choices become limited,life does not necessarily become easier.
Today, we have a choice. We can face reality with clarity, like the cathedral of Granada, built over the ruins of its former mosque.
Or we can prefer the blurred view over the remaining walls of the Alhambra.
For the moment, it’s maybe best to keep gardening.
