Good Morning Florence

In anticipation of a post coming tomorrow morning, I am reposting this one.

I have to admit that re-reading this, and other, posts from my trip to Italy, last May, is creating a longing, a wanderlust unlike anything I have known before.

I am remembering the golden sunrises, the freshness of the food and air, the warmth of the people, the history that can be seen, touched and walked upon. I am remembering the laughter, the joy, the beautiful people who I met in that beautiful land.

I really must start saving for the next trip, for I am realizing that one trip does not satisfy the travel-bug, it simply feeds it.

Enjoy … and don’t forget to read tomorrow’s post! It might just change your life!

I awoke this morning eager to see what only illuminated my imagination last evening, when I arrived at my accommodation in the dark.

The image, above, of the Meseo Nazionale del Bargello (in Florence, Italy) did not disappoint.

Pigeons cooing outside my windows, as thy sunned themselves on the warm tile rooftops only added to my feeling that I was not awake, but still dreaming. Of course a nine hour time change, and about eighteen hours of airplanes and airports also contributed to the feeling that I was not awake.

This pinch me, am I really in Italy? trip was the brainchild of my good friend (who also happens to host the retreat) and the hubby (who really just wanted to get rid of me so he could have a week of burgers and pizza).

As one who had never been outside of North America this destination was not even one that I could realistically have said that I even dreamed of taking. As a matter of fact, just last week my son asked if this was a dream come true trip, to which I replied,

I just don’t dream this big.

And yet, though a trip to Italy has never graced my still-to-start-filling bucket list, I am inhaling each and every view, every delicious morsel and find myself continually sighing at everything in view, with delight (and there is so much to be delighted with).

I anticipate the themes of this week to be food, visual delights and sighing.

When one is in a beautiful place, a desired place, an anticipated place, light or dark, beauty can and will be seen.
