One Picture




A cat in Monterosso, the town in Cinque Terre where we stayed. He was sitting patiently on the windowsill of a fancy seafood restaurant. On the counters just below him were mounds of prawns and squid and eel and floppy fish. He didn't seem to want to get in, just sniff deeply, remember such a world exists. Who can blame him?

Can you see the man in the window? We thought he looked like an aging Popeye.

Magical picture.

Don't worry, things will look up, they always do.

It took us 2 weeks to finally get our routine and house back to normal after our trip.

Hopefully it won't take you that long.
