My sacred spot

Zigzagged down the hill to the valley below Arte Studio Ginestrelle. A few mountain streams meet to form the beginnings of the Tescio River. I love it here.

Today's attributes

Visiting the neighbours.... buy eggs and potatoes from the local farmers.

Olive picking

We went olive picking today at Adria and Enzo Merli's olive grove at Ponte San Vittorino, Assisi.
A fog descended when we got there, and so all was shrouded in a silver mist.

Eremo delle Carceri

Spent the most magical morning at the Carceri hermitage where St. Francis went to meditate in the cave of that tranquil spot. It was a beautiful 5 km walk up Monte Subasio to the hermitage, and it was blissful once I got there. Sublime peace, beautiful birds amidst the 
Holm oaks and it felt like a blessing!
