Don’t Go to Tuscany if You Don’t Like to Eat!

I hate the words “weather permitting.” It messes with all of my modern sensibilities filled with iPhones and the Internet. It strips me of my New York City conveniences, where I can get anything I want at just about any time of day. I think, “I’d like coffee and bagels delivered this morning,” and in about 15 minutes they are there. I say, “I need to go to a bank,” and there is one open, even on Sunday. Social hours last well till four in the morning if not later, blurry-eyed at the diner.

The Galavant Girl Takes A Mission

So, here in NYC I’m on a countdown to Italy.  Yes, Italy.  Just before Thanksgiving, I started receiving a “calling” straight from God. (You can call it the Universe, the Force or the Great
Spirit in the Sky, whatever you like, but I’m more of a Blues Brothers kinda gal.) This message shooting me in the head was telling me I needed to get out of NYC and spend sometime elsewhere.  I
thought, “Yeah, right.  Okay God, if that’s what you really want, make it happen.”  I can be quite bold in these little conversations.  He can read …
