Ask me anything April edition
Welcoming spring on the island of Ponza and a good museum visit in Rome to commemorate the Festa della Liberazione tomorrow
Welcome welcome to all the new readers, I am so pleased you have found me. To my longtime pals, thank you again for being here.
We are still living our nomadic life while we wait for paperwork (both for the new house in Venice and from the immigration office in Rome.) I am finding it both freeing and exhausting to have no fixed address and only a few suitcases. We decided to spend Easter on our favorite island and then once we got there we decided to stay a little while longer. Ponza doesn’t really start its tourist season until mid-June so it was quiet, but there was just enough open that it wasn’t bleak. We took long walks and hikes and climbed to every high point that we could reach. There was plenty of napping and eating and meeting pals for drinks and seasonal pastries. There was some working1 in there too.
After a quick stop in Rome, we have headed back up to Venice. We have spent the past few days with dear old pals from Zimbabwe days who were visiting from New Zealand. This week is the slow but steady house-buying process.
By now you have probably heard about Notes? How do you feel about it? I was invited to be a Beta tester so I am trying it out. So far it seems fine, but I’m not completely sold yet about adding another place that I should check and create content for. My social media life started on Twitter and I found so many of my people over there. Twitter is sadly a shadow of its former self, but I think that the years that so many of us invested over there will take some time to take hold somewhere new.
It’s question time here. Just like the title says, you can ask me anything.
