Celebrations and dreams
is going to be a second Christmas for us. We've bought
presents for our son Christopher and Megan, his fiancée.
So we will have another day of celebration and then
the year proper will begin.
Steven and I talked tonight about why the Florence
visit is sticking in our thoughts and hearts so deeply,
when we were in Europe for two weeks in 2006
with none of the same after shocks. I think it may
be that Italy was so sympatico. Plus he explains that
we were two whole weeks in Florence, that I had a
job to do, that we met wonderful people, and
had our own apartment, and lived in a neighbourhood.
He has just let me upload pictures from his excellent
camera. So I thought I'd post some of them over
the next few weeks. Tonight's is a view over
the Tuscan countryside from a lookout in San Gimignano.
This was a 11th century Tuscan town we visited on our
last day in Italy.
Merry Christmas times two!
Have a loving-every-chance-to-celebrate day.
