Trigger happy at Cappodicolle.

This was such a beautiful place and I so fortunate to find the family so kind to let me stay here.


View from my terrace.


My fireplace :-) It is beautiful and warm in the day and cold as jeepers at night.

View of Capodicolle from the hills where I walk. The mountain in the distance is the same mountain my apartment in Ascoli used to look out on, except on the other side!


Steps to the house where I stayed


My desk :-)


Sunrises were breathtaking! Hell, everything was breathtaking!

Antonieta and Nimmo - my hosts. Wonderful, wonderful people.


My thinking rock. Straight down on three sides - I could slide to the edge and sit on top of the world!

View of the Sibillini Mountains


The hill I walked up every night to watch the sunset and separate the day of writing from the night of writing. It is like this almost the entire 30 minute walk - can you say tight bun??!


Wait, am I supposed to go 50? Or 30?


Italian road construction - judging by the height of the weeds, how long do you think they've needed to fix this part of the road?

A party in Ascoli with my crazy Italian friends - there are few joys greater in life!

Valentina feeding me chestnuts - mmm sooo good. The only time I ever even heard of chestnuts was the Christmas song!


The Maestro!


Back to my writer's garrett in the hills

So, the roosters wake me up at 5:30 am, after a relatively sleepless night. I drag myself out of the bed and walk to the window to watch probably the most incredible sunrise I've ever seen in my life! Definitely trigger happy on this one!

My lovely, wonderful, adorable Antonella. She, Giorgio, and I stayed up talking all night after work one day. For some reason around 3 in the morning we broke out the hats in some closet. It was such a wonderful night with two of the dearest people I am blessed to have in my life.


So we're silly together...
