« New and iffy [by John Emil Vincent] | Main | 30 [by John Emil Vincent; poem no comment] »

February 26, 2009


Two comments - the first is that I want to fall right into your photograph and follow those steps to ... wherever they may go. The second is - that's about the cutest baby I've ever seen!

Ditto LO's comment above. We were in Perugia and it was magical (but that's kind of how I feel about every place we visited in Umbria). It was great to see here in the US Moira and great to hear you read your poems. I wonder how one born and raised in the US can actually feel that home is elsewhere. SeriouslLy. Looking forward to your posts from abroad and your next visit. Stacey

Thanks for the kind comments, ladies. She really is an adorable baby, though of course I don't sound very objective. Nor is it easy to sound objective about Umbria, a major little slice of heaven on earth. I'll have to write an entire post about Umbrian food one of these days. Black truffles, yum. And re home. It's true, Stacey, it's a slippery concept. It's certainly nicer to be "an American abroad" now, oh, since November :) and there is a different spirit, Old World vs. New World -- well, it's complicated and now you've got me thinking. I'll write more. And I too look forward to my next visit "States-side."
