|I spotted this sign in Monteriggioni, |
one of the ancient fortress towns near where we stayed in Tuscany.
So I'm actually going to be writing about our summer trip someplace else. I'd sort of resigned myself to not being a "writer" any more, but a writing job pretty much fell into my lap, with a fun family-oriented online magazine—so that'll be happening soon. For now, I'll just say that Italy was amazing and beautiful and worthwhile in all the ways you want a vacation to be. Lots of sun, gorgeous landscapes, great food, relaxation, and time to think and read. (I know I'm way late on that book, but what a good one; better late than never.) And now my children are at school (fifth grade! first grade!) and I have got to get cracking over here. Art to recommend, after all.
