newsletter The best plan this last summer, in the midst of Catalanophilia and tourismophobia, was to take refuge with large quantities of ice-cold sparkling water and sit back to watch it all coming while paying tribute to Sergeant Pepper, he of the lonely hearts club fame, who had just turned fifty. Not only is it the Beatles' best album but it's probably also one of the best musical works of all time. It is a truly disruptive repertoire of forms and styles that unarguably marked a before and after in Western arts. Songs like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, When I'm Sixty-four and With a Little Help of my Friends are more than just a bunch of tracks. Its contribution to the musical canon can perhaps be compared to J.S. Bach's The Art of Fugue. The celebration, however, has passed by relatively unnoticed so far.

It was Gabriela who discovered the Spanish flag shredded into a thousand pieces that had been lying at the bottom of the inner courtyard for several days by then. The Spanish flag appeared in a stance of frank dialectical opposition at the end of 2011, when Barcelona's Eixample neighbourhood was a landscape of bars and stars. Since the Spanish flag disappeared from its usual place, we have interpreted its absence as a bad omen. Now that my daughter has discovered its new, perhaps even definitive location, the first thing she rushes to do as soon as she gets up in the mornings is to look down to the inner courtyard. Once she's checked that everything is in order, she feels able to start a new day with her usual energy.

We don't know where all this is going to end, but it's getting closer and closer. Verbal brawls have lately become rather commonplace on half empty or half full metros and buses. Very little time and a short path has passed between 'we are not afraid' and 'we want to vote'. Forecasts rain down on us one after another. Autumn unfolds her cloak with greater caution than usual. It's still hot. Will we have wild mushrooms this year? We don't know where all this is going to end, but the day is getting closer and closer.
