Francesca at home in her Colorado wildlife garden
|FROM THE ARTIST'S DESK:
When dreams become a reality... A few weeks ago, Frances
Mayes and I were introduced. She is the author of "Under the
Tuscan Sun" and was working a book tour for her latest best
seller, "Around the World in a Year." Frances Mayes' most
profound words to me were, "I had to redefine in my mind
where I called home in this world." She was referring to the
journey to change homelands from the USA to Italy. Although
this is what I yearn for most, it creates a deep emotional
struggle within me too. When I heard her speak those words,
I knew exactly what she meant. This summer will be the
changes of my attitudes to where I call home.
