The BEST Christmas!
forioscribe



My Christmas celebration this morning: I began with a bus ride around the island, which I do frequently, then I walked through my village. There was an impromptu fish market in the piazza near Sant Gaetano where I encountered a TV cameraman and cute reporter. Then to Santa Maria di Loreta where they had a scale-model of our village. As I looked at the familiar buildings in miniature the loudspeaker played John Lennon's "Imagine." Perfect! Then I went to La Tinaia for a pizza with mozzerella & anchovies, ice cream desert and a Coke. Then home!


Siimple things like this are the very BEST.

You know that line about feeling homesick for a place one has never been to?

Seeing pictures of Italy makes me homesick for a place in which I've spent exactly one week.

The moderately profound part is, once I got there, I realized I'd been going there in my dreams for years already.
