Isola di Capri, Italia…

my virtual playground

“Our soul needs more space than our body. I want my house open to the sun, the wind and the voice of the sea – like a Greek temple, and, above all: light, light, light – everywhere!”(Axel Munthe)

This tiny island used to be called “Khapros”(boar isle!) by the Greeks, then, after the Romans arrived, they distorted the word and its name turned into “capreae” that later became “Goat island”; situated 40′ from Naples by hydrofoil, 1/2 day is enough to visit it, but I suggest a pleasant boat tour, as it allows to admire its cliffs and awesome grottos… 🙂

There Was A Title

Walking in the snow as the sun was trying to break through it ran through my mind. Instead of taking note through pages on the cell I wondered if I’d remember it then got taken up in the sunshine / clouds/ large flakes swirling, so many up early shoveling, plowing and did I tell you I almost got eaten by a large dog snarling at me, darting across the street though I was past his house to save face with his person snarling ” get back here damn dog” ? Forgot its name but I did notice he was up to my waist. If he’d taken a chunk from my buttocks some would have been disappointed, even devastated, still… at my age! Nothing could stop me from drinking in the morning. Even with my Uggs absorbing the moisture, the leather waterproof ones I didn’t pack , each time the sun broke through I forgot, felt warm, are my toes wet? Yes they were but that was ok.

I’m tired of the cold and being cold, want to go home though not yet, can’t, another 8 inches with delays or are schools closed today? We’ll know that in due time. My, my it’s almost 5. Matcha tea with protein ginger and honey, espresso? One thing for certain, slipper boots. Toes definitely cold with these socks.

Tired of being cold.
