Hello? Is anyone still out there?

Let me start the list of excuses for my not writing (not necessarily in any kind of order) :

1. social life

2. work life

3. home life

With all these lives, I'm finding it difficult to find time for living. Actually that's not really true. There has been some BIG living since the last post. Brother and Sister-in-Law Paul and Cindy came for a visit. Pals Chiara and Luigi opened a new restaurant. There was the wine tasting at an awesome b&b under the stars and the opera performed in a little piazza in a hilltop village up the road. There was the DJ party at Robbi and Inna's in honor of the orphans from Russia who come every summer. And the water heater broke.

The truth is that I haven't been writing NOT because I can't squeeze out 15 minutes to write a post. The real reason is that when I sit down at the computer I don't really have anything to say. It seems that will all this living I've forgotten to take notice, to observe, to appreciate the Life.

    Of course we are out here. Just waiting for you to write. So now you know--the rest of humanity hasn't disappeared.

    And the Who's down in Whoville said "We are here! We are here! We are here!

    Denver is still here looking forward to the adventures in Maberga. Sounds like everything is going well, except for the water heater of course. After all you need an occasional interruption to recognize your blessings.

    we are so sorry. the water heater is our fault. on the airplane we were talking about how nice everything was and that everything was working namely, the water heater. we were reminising about when you had all the girls there and no hot water. i hope we haven't set you up for any other breakdowns. cindy
