Having been absent from Marbella Town throughout the month of September due to the death of my dearest Dad at the end of August – and not really here in spirit since my return – it is only since I got back home last weekend after a week literally walking my grief away in the healing wooded hills of the nearby white village of Ojén (post coming soon) – that I’ve come back down the mountain with my soul refreshed and inspired once more to relaunch my blog and share the gentler-paced late autumnal life in Marbella – both inside and out.
