God sometimes gives us unexpected gifts. Our gift has been a grandson who enlivens our lives and makes retirement very different than the one we anticipated. He is a special joy. And that's "Casey." In 2006 we fulfilled our dream of living in Italy for a year. It was every bit as wonderful as anticipated. This blog begins in 2005 as we prepared for that experience. Since then we have explored many places together. That's the "Travel." And finally, I am a person of opinions--spiritually, politically, on just about anything and that's the "Other Stuff." Welcome to my blog.

A Tuscan Moment

There is so much to write--this week has been full of special experiences--such as the little shoemaker who insisted we take his big orange squash to use as a pumpkin for Casey. But--right now, I want to treat you to the little borgo we explored yesterday. So--enjoy the picture show!

Italy absorbs the senses and imagination. There is always something around the bend --but, what it is, you just don't know until you get there. So--you keep traveling the road with eyes wide open and hearts of anticipation.

The Bend in the Road
