If you learn you aren’t willing to put in the effort and do the hard work when it’s necessary, then you need to reevaluate if you truly […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
When I was a kid, I loved sitting on the sofa with my Granny watching Family Feud. There was always less feuding on the game show and more Richard Dawson kissing female contestants and battling fits of giggles at some of the absurd responses he’d hear. The show was entertaining.

Some days you just don’t want to get out of bed. Your bull shit tolerance is running on empty and the creative tank is just out of juice. The blues can last a day, or a week, or longer if you let them. There was a time in my life when I saw a therapist […]Continue Reading... 6 Comments.

This summer in Bologna, while living with Pippo, I was out for one of my routine walks and decided to stop into the neighborhood trattoria for a late lunch. I’d been walking passed it for two and a half months and never checked it out. I was feeling exceptionally inquisitive on this lazy Friday afternoon […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.
I woke up Monday morning bright-eyed and bushy tailed. I’d just had an amazing night’s sleep after spending Sunday in Venice for Carnevale. Evan would be arriving in Bologna around 11pm and I had plenty to do in preparation – clean house, address cell phone issues I’d discovered the day before, hit the grocery store, […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
