Is this heaven. Si. Here I am with Maggie (L) and Susan (middle). We are in Vallemontagnana in the mountains above Fabriano (valley mountain, si?). Maggie's elegant and very comfortable bed and breakfast is here. It is an extremely happy place. A golden eagle flew overhead on my first evening here and then today, as I was leaving, it flew again as if to say goodbye. Bella.
Susan is my host. She is here for six months on sabbatical and has been so generous to have me here and take such good care of me. We are having many art moments and loads of fun. Perhaps some of the hilarity was provided by the farmer and his wife (below with Maggie). They make the most delicious wine in their tiny cellar from grapes that they've grown on the hillsides below. She is bellisimo.
xo xo (that is a hug and kiss on each cheek, Italian-style).
