Notebook or journal notes:
22 May 2013 Daylight brings a glimpse of the Alps as the plane skirts the east coast of Italy. Early Mediterranean blue in the north is turning to slate gray as we near Rome’s Fiumicino Airport.
I’ve been reading a Niccolo book all night, the 14th Century adventurer, thinking how different his Mediterranean from mine. Even from the air the sea looks vast – not limitless like crossing the Pacific or Atlantic – but big for a ship powered by wind or men.
This is so evocative of the excitement of coming to a new place, and a perfect use of words and paintings. Love the sunset.
Love your depictions on the iPad!! I would like a taste of taralli-the name is enticing.
