Day 323 – Human beings are works of art

I always feel inspired when I walk the streets of Florence. Artists that live and create here inspire me the most. This morning was a source of incredible inspiration for me. After meeting three artists and talking to them about different projects we can work on together, I arrived home with a big, dumb smile on

Day 322 – Getting ready

The final preparations for the Writing Workshop are being made and everything is coming together nicely. People are excited, locations are being decided and ideas are coming to life. As writers we each take a different journey when telling others the stories we create. We have different voices, different approaches. My journey started on the streets

Day 321 – Details

I am all about the small details in everything. For instance if I receive a gift I am so excited about the wrapping and the bow on it and less about the actual present that’s inside. If I would go into a store, I would admire the small details they used to arrange the windows

Day 320 – Sleep…sleep…sleep

I love to sleep. I really, really love to sleep. Sometimes I miss the days when Ephia was a newborn and I could sleep around all night and all day, nothing else to do but take care of the baby. Ahhh, the good old days… Nowadays it seems that the only sleep I get are

Day 316 – Some motherly thoughts

My daughter is a cute midget who is growing up too fast. I sometimes am amazed of her progress and the choices she makes for herself.

Day 315 – No pain

Sunday morning, happiness, straying in bed until midday, laziness… no pain. Having fun, cruising along among dreams, loving feelings…no pain. Conversations, thoughts, writing…no pain. A play, actors, friends…no pain. Proudness,  feelings, fun… no pain. Coffee,  bragging, planning, no pain. Food, chocolate, smoking… no pain. The way home, phone call, happiness… pain. Concentration, bus, ignoring… pain.

Day 314 – Lost

Did I ever mention that I love driving? I think I did, but maybe I wasn’t clear enough. I love driving! Give me a car, gas and make me drive you somewhere and my worries disappear for those few hours. I got to do that today. After two hours of teaching, a friend asked me to
