On our trip to Milan for the 2019 SRN Conference we had the time to visit the Museum of the Risorgimento so I could do some research on the Italian perspective of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the topic of my second Mentoris novel. It really helped me see him from several sides – and artwork like this highlighted the place he holds in world civilization.

These days it is usually just Rosanne and me at the dining room table or occasionally 2 friends for dinner. Back in December, though, we hosted 6 members of our Sicilian family and the dining room was almost standing room only. 

This was their first day in town, so we greeted them with the quintessential LA meal of In-n-Out. 😀

Every other meal at home, though, looked more like our Italian meals when visiting them. They might have experienced the US and LA when we went out, but evenings cocooned them in a sense of normal home life.

I love visiting historic places of all types be they natural or manmade. I found this sculpture in Parco di Monza, near the Villa Reale.

I came across an Italian version of “Charlotte’s Web” and had to share it with Orazio for his daughter, Carlotta, which you can probably guess, is the Italian version of Charlotte.
