  • A portrait I got done on my 30th birthday in Piazza Navona. I had just moved to Rome and spent my birthday by myself. That morning I woke up with an itchy head and realized I had gotten lice. Probably from someone on a bus. After spending the day washing my hair, clothes and sheets, I went out into the center. I wanted to get my portrait done, somehow capture turning 30. It doesn’t look like me but I see how determined I was to live in Italy even if I didn’t know how I was going to do it. Tomorrow I turn 40 and I’m still here. That’s pretty neat.
  • This morning I took my niece Adg and nephew-in-law Jayjay to the port at 6 am to get one of the first boats back to the mainland so they could catch the plane back to New York. Goodbyes and heavy sadness. I drove down to the castle and caught the sunrise and waited for their boat to pass by. The sunrise eased the sadness a tiny bit, but now I’m back home with the cats and it’s hard.
  • This summer is the best! (I gave 2 euros to some kids to take pictures of me and the ciambella. They used the money to buy candy.) #iloveischia
  • This is one of the dirt roads that takes me home during the summer. Walking here on a hot quiet afternoon reminds me when I was little and all the grownups took naps and I got to do my own secret things unobserved and in peace. #iloveischia
