On the Road
Just before my single mom girlfriend put the lawnmower I lent her back in my car, she gave me two kisses on the cheek and we hugged.
I believe that God gives us what we need for those moments in life that swallow us, but in those really critical moments when we find ourselves lacking...sometimes all it takes is a cigar, a piece of melted chocolate, or a ride in a glass elevator...
to put us back on the road.
And there will be detours that take us South of Florence, curves that make us sick to our stomachs, unbearable stretches of highway that are so monotonous your eyes become heavy, bumps that make us spill our coffee and variable weather conditions...
But sunflowers will soon be in season here in Tuscany, and there is nothing like speeding down streets lined with fields of sunflowers in Tuscany..especially when you add melted chocolate.
