. . . woman, for there is nothing in life, nothing, so sad as to be blind in Melbourne"
Looking for all the world like a beggar with an alms bowl, this reclusive worker in Flinders Lane, had just finished the healthy contents of his Tuppaware container and was enjoying watching the passing crowds from the seclusion of a quiet, doorway alcove.
“Give him alms, woman,
for there is nothing in life, nothing,
so sad as to be blind in Granada.”
This real quote is from Francisco A. de Icaza, describing the beauty of Granada, Spain. It is emblazoned above the entry gate of the “Torre de la Vela” or Watch Tower of the Alcazaba; the oldest part of the Alhambra
Not entirely sure that substituting Melbourne is altogether appropriate;
but anyone having visited the Alhambra would have to agree with Francisco :-)
