España and Semana Santa by Photographer Shane Aurousseau

Images of Semana Santa (Holy Week this week) part of the fabric and colour of Spain. A thread that holds communities together however a thread that even the church questions. A festival that brings into the light one of the most difficult issues for all the monotheistic religions descended from Abraham a question of idolatry or for ecumenical theologians the perversion of essence.
However where would we be without the great festivals of all denominations of the world?

Notre-Dame fire: What the cathedral means to the French – BBC News

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-europe-47942786

It’s not the first fire in Notre-Dame some of the Rose windows have not survived past fires. It’s amazing the structural strength of these great buildings and their architectural contribution.

Another great European building Mezquita de Córdoba
Known locally as Mezquita-Catedral, the Great Mosque of Cordoba is one of the oldest structures still standing from the time Muslims ruled Al-Andalus (Muslim Iberia including most of Spain, Portugal, and a small section of Southern France) in the late 8th century. Cordoba is a two hour train ride south of Madrid, and draws visitors from all over the world.

These great buildings a glue that keeps social fabric together.

The Anomalies Traditions and Spirit of Spain Espana by Shane A

Spain, for me one of the most fascinating and alive countries in the world a microcosm of global cognitive dissonance. The primeval instincts buried and suppressed within all of us along with an openness and expressiveness many of us are not capable of.

For most of us the reality of many of the world’s issues don’t exist, knowledge and denial. Heaven forbid that this is a discussion on bullfighting it’s not or fox hunting or Kangaroo shooting. We are destroying the planet while looking the other way. Not a form of justification however 80% of the films we watch are just as violent as bullfighting the only deviation is the perception no one is really getting hurt a safe way to pander to the primeval. The care directed at the noble Andalucian horse.

El Gitano de Oro

The very real connection to music of the Golden Gypsy, el gitano de oro. Then there is the security safety of religion being part of the community participation in making things right an important part of keeping the balance and forgiving the misdemeanours. The exciting expressiveness of escape from worldly issues through Fiesta, Romeria or Feria. The faces of the woman and little girl in the carriage, happy to be participating, the pride of the gypsy boy participating on the horse. The everydayness of the bandsman playing with his mobile. Hope these images add a meaning to my statements. Look closely at the detachment of the spectators at the corrida. Are the spectators and matadors really connecting with the drama or just playing lip service to a traditional peer group concept that embodies toò much reality to really connect with or is there some form of emotional primeval stimulus, note the child. For the matadors detachment a defence mechanism, possibly? looking but not seeing certainly for many of the spectators. We live by denial a protection against the enormity of change and our individual inability to effect change.
