"The key to change is to. . .let go of fear"
"If time does not wait for you, don't worry. Just remove the battery for the clock and enjoy life"
Sunlight, friends, good food, and laughter. . .every thing we need in life.
Last April, my roommate Melanie and I took the battery out of the clock for one glorious weekend in Italy. Ryan Air offered a weekend discount fair from Leeds/Bedford to Milan for thirty pounds, so naturally we seized that opportunity to visit our friends.
Upon leaving the plain we knew that we were not in England anymore. The sun was shinning, the air was warm and fresh. We took a bus to the central station and met our dear friend Ada. Showed welcomed us with open arms. At her apartment ate treats from the local bakery, soaked the the beauty if Italy. We met up with our other friend and enjoyed the beauty if Milan. A local artist sat on the street and carved flowers and animals from vegetables, we looked on at him amazed. After giving him a little money, the artiest gave Ada a dolphin carved out of a carrot. We instantly fell in love.
The Milan cathedral was large and stunning, and the sun inviting. We further marveled at the sun when we visited the breath taking coastal village of Portofino and drank an 8 euro hot chocolate. We explored and laughed.
That weekended was gift of light, good food, and amazing company.
