Obviously TIME has been a theme for me this week. So I went searching for a photo that I took of a clock in Paris, but then I stumbled upon this one and went, "Oh, holy crap!" It's like she's battling time, too!
So I opened it up in Photoshop and started trying to take that ugly crane off the top of the building until I said, "Oh, holy crap." Battling time is a constant process and I'm working on it. So I clicked revert and the crane stayed in.
Jason took this photo in Verona in April 2005. Aaron was visiting us and we were traveling all over; we stopped in Verona for a couple of hours on the way back home from a big road trip (the previous stop of which had been a night in Milan to see Jude perform).
Verona, of course, was beautiful. But the main thing I remember
We had to get back to the car and on the road, but we found out that Paula would be in Venice tomorrow and we would, too, so I gave her my cell phone number so we could meet up! But something happened--I don't remember whether she lost the number or couldn't figure out the Italian pay phones--so I didn't hear from her and we just headed down to Venice the next day. I was kind of bummed about not getting to talk to her more since we'd met in such a crazy way, but still glad that I'd seen her. And then we ran into her again. Seriously. In a huge city with miles and miles of tiny alleys and zillions of people, we just happened to be in the exact same place at the exact same time, again. So we wasted no time in sitting down and chatting over a spritz! So I can't think of Verona without thinking of amazing coincidences. :)
Lots to do today... I need to gather up class supplies and choose and print photos for my three classes tomorrow, I'm having lunch with my aunt Susan, I want to finish up a couple necklaces, hopefully take photos and get a few things up on etsy, and then we're going to a birthday party for my neighbor Maryalice. Maybe you'll hear from me again today. If not, have a super weekend!
