Happy Easter sweeties!
” San Michele Arcangelo, or Sant’Angelo. I kept looking for John Travolta’s big fluffy wings. Called a Tempietto, sixteen Corinthian columns. Pentagram too. Hmmm . . . I wish we’d had more time for Sant’ Angelo. Onward.” 10am
“I hope you will go out and let stories, that is life, happen to you and that you will work with these stories. . . water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Noon in Cortona “Tea stained easter eggs and strong coffee and we were off early. My intuition chose the right colored pens for today, as the colors in and on the road to Perugia were Quin. Gold and Undersea Green. We had trouble seeing Lago Trasimeno, but came into farm & olive tree country.”
“Grabbed lunch from a stall yesterday, glad we did, most everything is closed. . . but not churches! Elisabetta is nobility. Does she miss out on simple country pleasures? A walk in an olive grove by San Bevignate?”
“Mik and I have looked at our time here and are questioning our trip plans. We are not going far enough into France for the changes he’s got in his head for M and E’s travel. Now we are contemplating ditching the day trip to Milan (unnecessary in any case — a shopping spree) and going from Parma to Placenza then drop down (as E&M) into Genoa. . . Then if we can ditch the rental car and take a boat trip to Marseille we will ACTUALLY recreate that trip — their trip!”
“From Marseille we’ll go up into Aix-en-Provence, across to Arles, where they then cross the river into Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Somehow then (and I haven’t maps nor a way to be online [today]) we’ll go toward Toulouse, France, and cross/travel alongside the Camino. Maybe we’ll do a day of Camino too.”
“We are so good together, ebb and flow, even having synchronistic ideas at the same time. . . We will come back along the Italian coast, in a hurry or taking our time, depending on how much time we spend in the Camargue region and in France. . . painting, drawing, writing!”
“Mik & I get the best creative ideas while traveling and have the best sex too.”
