100 times Thank You

Dear you, dear friend, this post will be short and sweet. The small type on my stats page tells me that as of yesterday, there were 100 posts on “The Daily {French-Italian} Cure.” That is cause for celebration. A small landmark, but a landmark nonetheless. Thank you so much for hanging in there with me, for sharing your comments, for encouraging me to keep on keeping-on. In honor of your steadfastness, I give you 100 lire. They won’t buy anything, but if you put them in your metaphorical pocket, they might remind you—when you need a reminder—that joy lurks in the smallest, overseen corners. Thank you, again, for being here with me.

    I love reading about your life in Milan – a city visit as often as Ican.

    I accept your metaphorical gift but my “pockets” overflow with the 100 gifts you’ve already given me, wrapped in beautiful visuals. I’ve wondered how long it takes you on average to create and gather your materials? Your insights, photographs, and writing are at such a high level that I’m hoping they become a book of your treasured Milan and life in Europe. Just as we sometimes have clearer eyes and minds to see and appreciate the little things on vacation, your fresh thoughts remind me to seek out the small and important details in my own corners.
    With much respect and gratitude,

    • Thanks Diana, this encouragement is so appreciated. It’s funny…sometimes, it takes a long time. Sometimes it comes fast and furious. I tend to accumulate a lot of material at the same time. I’ll think I’m photographing one thing, and then I’ll notice that other patterns are emerging…as if I was attracted to something without even realizing it, and I try to pay attention to these subconscious choices. You make a really astute observation about the ability to see when you’re on vacation…I am sort of perpetually on vacation, which is not to say that it’s free and easy (it’s not)…but I am, to some extent, always an outsider, and this has both its positive and its negative sides. I’m trying to make the most of the positive, I guess. I don’t know where this will take me, but I’m going to keep at it as faithfully as I can. It does me a world of good. Thanks for being on the receiving end of the experiment.

    I recently joined your follwers through a recommendation on facebook from a friend of mine. I love starting up the laptop and with a cup of coffee, deleting the junk and opening your blog. Your photos and your insights on big ideas as well as small details are truly enjoyable. Some of your photos inspire me to jot ideas in my notebook for future weaving projects. Grazie!
