- Happy Holidays from the Blossoms of Light 1 month ago Ciao Readers and Happy Holidays! I thought I’d ring out the old year and welcome the new with the wonders of the Denver Botanic Garden’s Blossom of Lights (with the help of a gorgeous evening sky). Walk with me as the evening progresses… Wishing you and yours healthy and peaceful holidays and...
- Botanic Gardens of Albuquerque & Denver (a photo anthology) 1 month ago Ciao Readers! I hope this blog post finds you well. Today I shift from philosophizing to sharing pretty pictures! Two of the places I’ve felt comfortable going these last many months is for a stroll outside at the Botanic Gardens in Albuquerque (which I have probably been to 100+ times) and the...
- There's Always Hope 2 months ago Ciao Readers! Boy, it’s feast or famine with me and blogging…. For those of you who don’t know me personally, I recently became a federal court of appeals mediator – so it’s basically my job to try and help folks who have been disagreeing, usually for several years or more, to reach a...
- Same Time Last Year 3 months ago Ciao Readers! I hope this blog finds you and yours doing as well as can be expected. It has been quite some time since I blogged…I suppose like many of us I have just been at a loss for words (I’ve also been transitioning to a new job and semi-living in Denver – blogs to […]
- Peaceful Pandemic-Times Pics (a photo anthology) 9 months ago Ciao Readers! How are you doing? Strange times, no doubt. I am doing fairly well as long as I stick to my morning runs, evening walks and chillaxing at home. I know why we’re doing it, but as someone who’s used to reading people, all the masks make me feel discombobulated, so I’ve...

I look forward to living a few moments each day, or at least several times a week, in Florence - and that is exactly what happens when I read New Mexico to Italy. I have a cappucino, or a gelato, or an exotic meal overlooking a breathtaking view - that is in FLORENCE! It's well written, funny and yet genuine, the pictures help you 'see' Florence through Hope's eyes. A few days ago I walked with Hope along the Arno and it was a delight. I've seen how even the little things make each country so very different. Cars parked randomly everywhere - would NEVER happen in a city here; you'd be ticked & towed, yet it's normal there. Exotic. Wonderful, ancient architecture with details captured in the photos that make me google them because they are unwrapped treasures - brought to me as I sit in New Mexico. It's a fabulous blog! I always grin when I see I get to go spend a bit of time in Florence, and then I either savor it while stretching out the wait, or I can't help it and dive right in.

I love this blog and look forward to each new post! In addition to being very entertaining and informative about everyday life in Florence, it's educational--I've learned much about history, art and local customs.
