I’ve been having a hard time writing.
No, It’s bigger than that. I’ve been have a hard time THINKING, concentrating on anything for more than a few minutes. I can’t even read properly.
Maybe the fever knocked it out of me.
Or maybe there is something else going on? More on that possibility later…
Finally got out on a bike for the first time this year. Except I was all alone with a bunch of Milanese- everyone else from Bergamo, including my husband copped out because of a bit of rain early Sunday morning. Well, ok, whole heck of a lot of rain. But if Sweden did anything positive for me at all it was to give me a set of decent rain gear, so I rode through the driving rain to the station and caught the 8 o’clock train to Milan. And by the time I arrived the rain had stopped.

Riding through Milan on Sunday morning is something I highly recommend: it was peaceful, quiet, little traffic, just a few folks here and there walking to church. The air was clean because of the recent rain. Really, really lovely.

And I got some ideas for when Anna Bess visits in two weeks…
