    I didn’t get to this post until after Thanksgiving. Can I still be thankful for the great photos?

  • Green–the colour of life and, according to some, the colour of the heart chakra which equals love. Clearly, you have a big heart and a great love of your life in Sicily. I am thankful that you share it all so colourfully with us on your blog.

    Grazie a te e tanto piacere a fare la tua conoscenza virtualmente.
    We’re a Sicilian family living in Missouri and can’t help wishing to be living half the time in Sicilia.
    I’m so thankful to have discovered your blog and I wish you tanti auguri e tante belle cose!
    A presto!

      Ciao Carole, thank you so much for dropping by the blog! Sicilians living in Missouri! Wow–you should start a blog about that!

      (You share the last name of my favorite Sicilian ceramicist/artist.)

With much to be thankful for, especially your friendship, I wish you and Kim a blessed and delicious day!

    I am thankful for discovering Ragusa Ibla this summer and getting to relive it on occasion via your blog.

      Hi Wayne! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving in NYC–or wherever you are–and thanks for remembering our little stone village in the “wilds of Sicily.”
