Rosabella Gregory concert

I wrote about this briefly before but did not mention that I had a fellow feeling when Rosabella explained her attachment to Barcelona before singing the song so titled. Her father had always wanted to go to Barcelona but never had the chance before he died. I was living in Barcelona in 2003, and my mother had planned to come over and visit but became too ill, and also died without coming over. Even before this, I was missing my friends and family, and did a small sketchbook project with postcards of all the famous sights in Barcelona with images of my friends and family, some alive, some dead, collaged in the foregrounds of them - I called the project 'Wish you were here'.
