My mother and sister and I arrived in the Cinque Terre today in Italy. Once again, I find myself hampered by internet cafe technology and the sheer expense of a minute of online time, so this will be brief and imageless. Though if you click on my itinerary on the side you can see a picture of the town I am currently in.
As soon as we stepped of the train I fell in love, clear down into the depth of love like only happens a couple of times in a lifetime. It is almost as deep as when I first heard The Paperboys play...yes, believe it....it is fitting, perhaps that Brad, the banjo player from the Paperboys first suggested that I visit, then my friend Samara told me about it. To the two of them, I owe a wealth of gratitude.
To all of you who have sent me messages and suggestions, know that your love and your ideas are sinking in and I am carrying them around fervently in my heart and head and trying to arrange my schedule in such a way that I might get to certain places, like the Isle of Skye and Sienna.
My mom and sister await.
I promise you stories soon....some beautiful tales, some harrowing ones too.
And from this beautiful spot, both outside and in my heart, I send you all love!
