See Dog Run

I had a visit from my nieces the other day and one of them scolded me for my failure to say anything “official” about the deafening silence at this blogsite since I got home from my Gap Year trip.

So here’s a picture and a few words, on the eve of La Saltana’s 6th birthday.

I am still here. She is still here. Doris too. All’s well. We are just completely occupied elsewhere with planning for the forthcoming creative development of a new show of mine, Things That Fall Over. (Somewhere, back in the archives of this blogsite, lie the seeds of the story. There’s even pictures.)

Anyway, it’s all happening here so no time for much else. A new TTFO blog will be launched next month and I will do my best to join the dots…

Will I resume these pages at some future time? Who knows.

Either way, thanks for noticing.

Arrivederci Roma

I saved this photo for today. You may just be able to make out the speck of a plane low in the sky. Ostia Antica is quite close to Rome’s international airport so my visit yesterday gave me a chance to watch plane after plane ascending and to start getting mentally prepared for the long haul of a trip home.

I tell a European that I am looking at at least 24 hours in the air, and their jaw drops. This one lost her whole head!

Ciao all…. See you when I do….

Summer on a plate

Fennel, orange and olive salad. I am gradually working my way through the menu at a neighbourhood trattoria and this is perfect heatwave fare.

Semi-final….

The poppy has been my floral emblem on this trip so it seems fitting to post this as I wind things up.

I love the Italian sense of colour, even when it’s somewhat overstated. For Melbourne readers, this is Rome’s version of Beaconsfield Parade.

After five hours at Ostia I was done in. Thankfully it was just two more stops on a train to the (user-pays) beach for a restorative dip.

Have lots more photos to share with the mosaic enthusiasts when I get home.
