Returning home from Italy with a luggage full of memories

August 12, 2012
The OBSERVER

After two months spent in Tuscany, Italy, mostly in my hometown Colle di Val d'Elsa, we finally returned to the U.S. laden not only with luggage, but full of memories, experiences, projects and emotions. The 10 days in Germany helped us appreciate family, friends, well-established customs such as coffee time with delicious cakes and pies, and a sustainable environment. Upon departing from Florence, we reflected on our journey in a region that is part of an interconnected world, where everything is linked like pieces of a puzzle, and where lives, time, and space have meanings which became even clearer to us when we returned to our house here, which was tended by friends and neighbors. The threads connecting us are never broken, well maintained by relationships that precisely transcend time and distance.
