Mickey in Sicily

July 2, 2013

When you meander through shadowy lanes in summertime Sicily, just before dusk, surprise is always right around the corner.

Out of nowhere a blind courtyard will appear–the kind you don’t see till you’re right in it.

That’s how I met Smiley.

Up he popped from his yellow seat.

Rushed at me like I was the long lost friend he hadn’t seen in 50 years.

Si, mi piace Topolino (Mickey Mouse)!!
