Thoughts of Italy

Number 83 - A trip to Perugia

Coming full circle.

I am still cleaning out drawers and boxes (and anything else that appears in my path), which is obviously a never ending task. On the latest pile destined for the recycle bin (or a bonfire) were some small drawings & collages that I made during our first longer adventure in Italy. Although these pieces had been singled out as “not-quite-worth-saving”, they did contain some beautiful moments. Being the waste-not-want-not queen that I am, I started cutting and pasting. Again.

Yesterday I noticed that the piece of train ticket embedded in one of the now-torn-apart collages I was working with was dated 24-07-93. Exactly 18 years ago – to the day. Who says the narrative of a life is linear?
