Countdown to Assisi


In less than 24 hours I will be fulfilling some of my long term dreams- to go to Assisi and follow blessed St. Francis’ footsteps, to go to the Vatican on a Sunday morning and listen to Pope Francis address the crowd and simply to be in Italy as an artist- to feed my artist’s soul.  I have a shiny new sketchbook solely for my Assisi experience, with inks, pens and watercolours at the ready.

I intend to write some chapters of my book of meditations in the earliest hours of the day, go for a walk to find breakfast and then to discover places I would like to sketch and paint for several long, long hours.  It is hot over there at the moment so I guess the afternoons will be siesta time.  Then later in the day more walking and exploring, seeing how the light reflects from buildings, city walls and trees and finding a great place to eat.

I have already been in touch with a few people out there and am looking forward to meeting them.  I am staying at the Society of St. Francis Apartment which has been a great blessing and am flying to Rome  via Copenhagen!

More posts most likely when I return.

God bless
