I know. It’s only Sunday. I don’t leave until Thursday. But when I get excited, I tend to want to hurry the week along.
Parma looks as if it’s going to be about ten to fifteen degrees warmer than it is here. Maybe I’d better pick up some sun block, too!
I’m very excited to be going to Italy. This will be my first visit there, but the culmination of many bookish and imaginary excursions throughout my life. Even before I took four years of Latin in highschool and immersed myself via translations in Roman history, I had visions of Italy from Roman mythology. It will be interesting to see if the reality matches up with the Italy of my imagination.
I’m looking forward to meeting Italian readers, especially the members of Blood Memories. Their enthusiasm for this visit has already made me feel very welcome!
