  • Florence's beauty is love
    on Nov 25, 2015
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 Beauty is not just pleasing to the eye; it's also pleasing to the heart and soul. I'm fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but it isn't enough for me to just fall asleep and wake up in Flore...
  • Being supported by Florence
    on Oct 25, 2015
    Sunday, October 25, 2015 This year has been an intense one for me. I didn't realize the intensity of it until I went to California at the end of July. All of a sudden, everything came to a halt when I fell ill. For three weeks, I was tired and feveri...
  • Chasing sunsets and finding peace
    on Jul 11, 2015
    Saturday, July 11, 2015 For the past couple of weeks, I have tried to go outside as often as possible to watch the sunset. I initially thought that I just wanted to observe the sky change color – from blue to yellow to orange and pink – as the su...
  • Sunrise stroll along the Arno
    on Jun 28, 2015
    Sunday, June 28, 2015 When the church bells rang five times this morning, I was surprised that I was fully awake. I looked out the window and saw that it was already light outside. The sun hadn't risen high enough yet for the ponte (bridge) to cast i...
  • Mesmerized by the fireworks for San Giovanni
    on Jun 25, 2015
    Thursday, June 25, 2015 In the late evening, I always enjoy a walk along the Arno and stop on a ponte (bridge) to take a photo of the sunset. Last night, however, I was on Ponte alle Grazie for a completely different reason: to watch the fuochi d'art...
  • My home in Florence
    on Jun 23, 2015
    Tuesday, June 23, 2015 In the morning, the city hums outside my apartment windows. Shortly after the sun rises, I am awakened by the garbage truck that beeps as it reverses into position in the piazza below. I bask in the sounds of my beloved city as...
  • Enjoying the unpredictable weather
    on Jun 16, 2015
    Tuesday, June 16, 2015 This summer more than ever the weather seems to be a bit quirky in Florence. Almost ever day, the weather surprises me by how it can change so quickly and dramatically. It could be sunny in the morning, then it'll begin to rain...
  • Florence nurtures me back to my heart
    on Jun 11, 2015
    Thursday, June 11, 2015 After being in Paris for two weeks, something shifted in me. The city did not change, but I did. At the beginning of this week, I felt completely empty. I tried many different things to cheer myself up, but nothing seemed to w...
  • Nourished by both Tuscany and Florence
    on May 31, 2015
    Sunday, May 31, 2015 It's not just because I have been physically living in Florence for over ten years that it is my home. Florence has a powerful energy that I enjoy and appreciate. It's a city that not only inspires me, but also supports me. I lov...
  • Taking the time to smell the roses
    on May 6, 2015
    Wednesday, May 6, 2015 I always look forward to being in Florence during the month of May. It's when I get to admire the flowers in Florence. Every morning this week, I looked out the window to see if the weather was good to go to the Giardino Bardin...
