About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

heard it in Italian

The oddest thing happened to me this evening
I was watching "the tiger and the snow" which
was subtitled in italian. well I was watching it,
loving it-reading it....when I had to go take the bread
i was baking out of the oven from the kitchen..when i started laughing
at something that was said on the television.........I heard it in Italian-
I undertsood it in italian!

I had been reading and scribbling words here and there and had been
exchanging some french for Italian earlier this spring........but somehow
never knew how much i was retaining- I have been so busy lately with
things.........i never knew i could.

this is the first thing i understood on my very own

lei ha ragione il mio amore su una cosa, il muro è verde per andare ...

(you are right my love about one thing, the green wall has to go.)..

I don't know Italian but it is my absolute favorite language. A dream of mine would be to speak Italian in Italy.
