When in doubt, look to Italy. If that’s not my motto, well, it should be. I was stumped for a photo to post today, so once again I’m turning to my favorite country, the country of my ancestors. This is from Florence, which, in addition to being in my favorite country, is pretty much my favorite city anywhere. It was 2012 and I was there with a group of friends from a professional organization I belong to. This morning, our last one together in the city, the Arno was calm and glassy and the sky was a perfect blue when we stopped for a photo opp.
This photo feels so peaceful, and with the world in disarray right now, we could all use a bit of calm.
