After returning from Mercatello, Italy, about a month and half ago, I am definitely back into the swing of things at home here in Henderson, NV. Music, teaching, practicing, working on my 'honey do' list, visiting with my sons and daughter-in-law, etc. ...it all has been terrific.
But, I do miss the people from Mercatello who are very warm hearted and expressive! That and the schedule of working several hours, taking a long lunch break, then a rest for about 30-45 minutes followed by a few more hours of work, aperativo, a little more work and finally dinner with friends. There was gorgeous countryside and wonderful experiences culturally, musically and building new friendships.
Still, its good to be home!
