Tuscan Room with a View

This is what came immediately to mind when considering a window view. No, it’s not the view from any window at my home. It’s the incredible scene from our room at the villa in Tuscany we rented with a group of friends in spring 2014. We spent many happy hours in that pool, oohing and ahhhing over the gorgeous countryside around us, and then traveling those hills to Siena, Volterra and other ancient towns that left us in equal awe. A vacation of lifetime, to be sure.

I love a room with a view.

(Missing from this gallery Paris and London as images are not to be found. Guess it’s time to wander across the pond again.)

H2O Abstract

h2o-aglow

There’s lots of change going on around here ~ the reason my posts are so sporadic ~ thus my mind drifts to the abstract, just as I move from one life abstract to another.

This is a lovely memory relived by the miracle of digital photography. Taken during a walk along the River Arno in Firenze on a beautiful late spring evening in 2014, ripples of coloured light dancing upon its reflective waters.

Reminds me that no matter how dark the recesses of our lives we can, like water, reflect the light and enjoy the unexpected and colourful abstract beauty it reveals.

We need only give it a chance.

Thanks for visiting …

Tunnel Vision

 

~*~

As long as we judge the world from the narrow perspective of our past, particularly negative, experiences we will never be able to engage with the light of new, life-affirming  possibilities.

To move beyond our tunnel vision is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.

Thanks for visiting,

The ancient clock tower of the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, June 9, 2014.

My intrepid husband and a couple of dear friends take in the view after scaling the precarious stairwell.

Time is a numbers game. Has it really been two years since this beautiful trip?
