The Romance of Travel – Italy


Country road

A friend of mine recently returned from two weeks in Europe. She took writing and drawing classes in Italy, spending most of her time on the Amalfi coast.


Her pictures and stories filled my head with dreams — and plans. I’m long overdue for some traveling, and Italy has been beckoning for quite some time.

Travel opens the mind, fills the soul, and touches the heart. It allows you step out of your daily routine and see the world afresh.

  1. What EXTREME BEAUTY… was absorbed into every pore on my skin…I inhaled it!!! It surely is a glimpse of Heaven!!! p.s. How are you coming on Christmastime 1939 and 1945? I can hardly stand the wait!!! I just love those stories!!!


  2. Hello Kathie!
    You won’t have to wait too much longer. Christmastime 1939 is with the publisher – I think it should be available in the next few weeks. I do hope so. But Christmastime 1945, the final book in the series, won’t be available until next year. There are several plots I need to tie up and a new love story to add!
    Thank you for you support and enthusiasm – I really appreciate it.
