Schifanoia : Escape to the land of not being bored

In mid-February I had an opportunity to escape for a little while a life that has become too mundane and routine of late. I am falling in love with Italy. Thank you to Florence, Siena, Pisa and Como. To K. Krohn, E. Galdini and ‘Westie’. To Ali Smith and her incredible novel ‘How to Be Both’, which I quote below, and to Francesco/a del Cossa whom I have not met.

“Art makes nothing happen in a way that makes something happen.”

Lean in.

“Cause roads that look set to take you in one direction will sometimes twist back on themselves without ever seeming anything other than straight…”
