that storm of the last few days that draped her curtain of rain over los angeles has passed. my garden is grateful and i guess i am too, but i wish she would have stuck around longer. bah.
we hired franco the caretaker to take us to a couple of umbrian villages – montefalco & bevagna. when i post my journal pages you’ll be able to read about that extremely excellent utterly awesome trip. i could write an entire chapter just on that one drive over hill and dale. umbria blossoming like a flower as we drove down her lanes and through her plush fields.
last night i sewed my signatures into the covers of my travel journal which i made before departure. now i’m adding a few photos and adding some more sketches on the half-dozen or so blank pages i brought home.
i’ve awoken from my long winter’s nap and ideas have begun to take shape in my big ponderous head. and one giant idea in particular is rattling around. demanding attention. i’ll keep you posted, gentle reader. yes i will.
