Our last day on Friday in Florence Bonnie and I did some solo activities in the morning…she went to the Uffizi Museum and I wandered around exploring the city…before we crossed the Arno River and walked to the Piazzale Michelangelo for absolutely stunning views of the city and surrounding areas. These pictures do not capture what my eyes saw…the landscape is GORGEOUS with the city, the dome and the green, lush hills in the background. I treated myself to a Tuscan style steak and asparagus for dinner and we were treated to a beautiful full moon shining on the cathedral as we walked back to our monastery. Epic trip, epic last night❤️

Wonderful first full day in Riomaggiore. We walked around the village and then after a couple of short rain showers the sun came out and we headed up the hill to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montenero. The views on the way up and at the top did not disappoint! So much beauty here everywhere you turn. We were treated to another epic sunset and cocktails at the end of the day…perfecto❤️🇮🇹

Left Venice at 10:40am and it only took 4 trains and 8 hours to reach Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre! I have wanted to come here for over 20 years and this amazing sunset was waiting for us as we got off the train! Bonnie treated me to a wonderful birthday dinner and dessert! Can’t wait to explore this magical land for the next 4 days❤️🇮🇹

Rainy day in Venice couldn’t spoil our fun! Bonnie went to the Guggenheim and I went to the Scuala, which is dubbed as the Sistine Chapel of Venice…stunning! And how could we not see A Haunting in Venice…while in Venice!!! Great movie! We ended the night at “our” restaurant…we ate here three nights in a row and has so much fun with our wonderful waitress Rosa…she gave us limoncello tonight! Tomorrow we travel all day to get to Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre. We are sad to leave Venice…it is an amazing city with so much charm but excited for our next adventure ❤️🇮🇹

Today we figured out how to use the boat system to get around…confusing but also fun to see Venice from the water! It was a brisk upper 50’s today with rain in our forecast for the next several days. No matter..a little rain can’t spoil our fun😀🇮🇹

Bonnie and I did an beautiful hike yesterday in Como! Rated moderate on All Trails it was a butt kicker…2000 feet in elevation gain over 2 miles. Walked through the town of Brunate above Como and then to the Voltiano Lighthouse. The views did not disappoint! You can see the Swiss Alps in the background and the boat race on Lake Como. Amazing!

Any donation, large or small, makes a difference...and I will offer a massage discount in the amount of your donation as well.

Today is the first day of the FIRST birthday month fundraiser.

I will be doing 2 fundraisers this month to honor the passing of my friend Jade.

Jade was a frequent visitor to Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, CA where she practiced mindfulness and it was a place of peace and calm for her.

In lieu of flowers she requested donations be made to Deer Park Monastery in her name, Jade Solan.

I would be honored if you could donate any amount, big or small, to celebrate the life of my friend who succumbed to cancer last month.

In addition, I will gift you a massage discount in the amount of your donation.

I am starting my birthday month fundraiser a couple of days early. My birthday is on October 20 and every year I choose a cause to raise money for..and typically I offer a massage discount in the amount of the donation.

This year is no exception...except that it's bittersweet because I am honoring the passing of my dear friend, Jade.

On Saturday, Sept. 17, her soul left her body after a valiant fight to overcome cancer.

Covid had disconnected us but I was lucky enough to have gotten reconnected with her and her wife last year and was there to help support them with massage over the past several months.

In her passing, Jade requested in lieu of flowers that donations be made to 2 of her favorite causes and places, so I will be raising money for 2 causes this year.

I would be honored if you donated any amount big or small in her name...or you can send your donation to me and I will make sure it gets to the charity.

The first one is Deer Park Monastery...A zen monastery and mindfulness practice center in the mountains about an hour north of us. Jade and her wife often went up to Deer Park for days of mindfulness and retreats. The land there was beautiful and restful, and they were fortunate to attend the last retreat where Zen Master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh taught.

The second is Volcano Arts Center - In general, the Volcano Park on the Big Island of Hawaii was a place of deep wonder and joyful retreat for Jade and her wife, and they often participated in cultural classes offered by the Volcano Arts Center in the Park while in Hawaii. During Covid, the online Hula Voices programming at the Volcano Arts Center provided a welcome touch of aloha during dark days. And on their last trip together in May they enjoyed the community "May Day is Lei Day" celebration and guided walk in the Niaulani Rain Forest preserve that is maintained by the Arts Center.

I'm attaching a picture of Jade and I from my 40th birthday in 2009. It captures her essence and playfulness.

I am so blessed and grateful to have known, loved and been called a friend by Jade. I will carry you in my heart forever. You will be missed❤️

This awesome message popped up on my Facebook memories...a great reminder to just do you and let it be messy. I've gotten to a good place in life where, for the most part, I don't care much anymore what people think. I have my circle of friends and confidants that I look to for advice and reflection but I've gotten to a place where most of the time I can turn down the external volume and just go about my business. So today...embrace the moment the best you can and do "it" anyway. I bet you if you are happy doing it...that is what people will see...and you just might inspire them to do something they are scared to do!!
