El Niño de las Pinturas in Granada, Spain

Here are a few of paintings by El Niño de las Pinturas that I came across in Granada, Spain last summer. They're beautiful pieces situated in a rustic city. Lonely Planet describes  Granada as "a paradoxical city where grit and grandiosity often sit side by side". To me, this fits the city perfectly. Granada is home to Alhambra, a elaborate mountain top castle,
but is also speckled with modern street art.

Jabberwocky by C.S. Lewis

This poem has been my weekly ear-worm. Read, absorb, enjoy...

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
