We've been gallivanting, gelato tasting and getting over jet lag in Rome for the past few days before my upcoming workshop and adventure in Florence with Italian Fix. I'm writing this from a 4 am cacophony of thoughts, alertness and a few fruitless sessions reading my book . . . Nothing an afternoon nap in the park can't cure later!

"Bella Roma!" our taxi driver explained as we approached the Colossuem early Sunday morning -- Indeed! This city is so pretty, it makes my heart ache, belly rumble with laughter and my lips spread into a constant, goofy grin. The buildings awash with pink, yellow ocher and dusty terra cotta offset the established trees, the fountains at every corner, each piazza (I like the smaller ones) with their intimate restaurants and bars, kids fluttering about with pigeons. . . It's hard to not feel cliche declaring "now this is my favorite little area!" only to be surprised by a more perfectly charming nook down the next alley . . .
