Earth

You and I savouring the fruits that the earth gives us.

You and I on this Costa Brava, land of castles and wine, of expansive plains and of wild wetlands.

 

(...) really sensational: the range of greens, ochres and earthy tones of the ploughed fields, the blue and grey of the sea, the golden greys of the Medes, the elephantine greys of Montgrí, the pale blue of the Alberes and the winged mass of Canigó, blue grey, white or the colour of flesh, depending on the time of year or time of day.

 

ANTONI PUIGVERD

Women, come down, come

to the dance of the grass.

We adorn the balconies with branches

and prepare the earth.

 

We water it with rain and sun,

we defend it with our teeth,

so that the tree of liberation

will take root.

The Empordà 

Mont Aspre, located in the heart of the Empordà, offers views across a unique landscape. The extensive agricultural scenery, made up of rice paddies and wetlands, forms an exceptional and incomparable landscape. This landscape is also formed by the beach of Pals, a wide, sandy beach with its own very special panoramic view. The whole of this geography shares a common and essential element: the earth.

Xenophanes (c. 570 - 475 BC) proposed the earth - and the mud - as the beginning of all things: the arkhé. Xenophanes argued that the earth was infinite and always remained under our feet as an unchanging whole and that everything was destroyed periodically, returning to the primitive mud from which new forms emerged indefinitely. It is no accident, then, that Xenophanes chose the earth as the sole  representative of this elemental origin.
