Wordless Wednesday: Don Quixote & Sancho Panza!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We were amused by this creative version of Don Quixote and his faithful servant, Sancho Panza.  This was right on the left as you enter Woeste's in Los Olivos.

 
The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, or just Don Quixote, is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes. It was originally published in two parts, in 1605 and 1615. Considered a founding work of Western literature, it is often labeled "the first modern European novel" and many authors consider it to be the one of the greatest novels ever written.Wikipedia
 
A musical was written based on the book with one of the most inspiring songs called,  Impossible Dream. 

 

   

 

Here is the song as sung by Josh Grobin.  He does a great job enunciating the words.. Wishing everyone success in reaching their impossible dream.  Happy Wednesday!

My parents used to play their "Man of LaMancha" album quite often. By the time I was a teenager, I knew all the words to all the songs. But I had no idea what the story was about. Many years later I finally saw "Man of LaMancha" on Broadway. That's now one of my favorite shows.

 

I would have enjoyed that sculpture as well!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I was wondering where you were going with your title... very creative piece. Now I'm remembering seeing Man of La Mancha on Broadway in the 1960's. And who doesn't know "The Impossiblde Dream." Love that song.

Nina Hollander, Broker That song was played at commencement in many high schools and colleges, it is a wonderful song.  Even Elvis sang it! My mind takes me on adventures, it surprises when someone has not heard of this wonderful book. A

Kat Palmiotti It was also made into a movie with Peter O'Toole, and Sophia Loren as Dulcinea.  The movie was so so, and the play was so much better...Happy Wednesday.  A

Grant Schneider That location was a home with a very large yard turned into this lovely "quixotic" place.  There are homes around it, a tiny library (Los Olivos is hame to 1200 people) a park, a gorgeous Episcopalean Church with grounds and a maze...A

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - What a great job Josh Grobin did on that song. Even though Don Quixote may not fit a Mexican theme, it is a pretty nice choice for Cinco de Mayo.
