They say it takes nine tailors to make a man. As one man tells it, it took one good tailor to help take nine men to safety, traveling on foot over the mountains on a dangerous two day journey several days after Christmas during W.W.II. Well before the stroke of nine, with the noble and elegant profile...
Having just at great effort dug ourselves out from under considerable snow in the countryside, some of us not entirely successfully even this night, and under threat of yet more snow, the Barga Book Club members braved the elements and met at the warm and cozy hearth of Isobel in Canale, Tiglio. Krysia...
Earthquakes, evacuations, fires, unemployment, these are trying modern times. Over millennia European traditions have been established to help hold together the social fabric in times of trouble, harsh weather, famine. Seasonally, whether pagan, secular or religious, often in the form of winter festivals,...
On a verdant hillside between Tiglio Basso and Ponte all’Ania, looking out onto the magnificent Apuane Alps and over the mid Serchio river valley, there is a lovely tall white stucco villa, capped by a red tile roof, on property which has been in the Barsotti family for hundreds of years. The home...
With disturbing prescience Margaret Atwood published The Handmaid’s Tale in 1986, a novel of speculative fiction of an authoritarian reproductive dystopia. The story closely follows the current enslavement of a young woman of requisite reproductive capacity with flashbacks to a not distant free...
On a cold clear November night, under the sliver of a crescent moon, about thirty people gathered in the cosy rustic interior of the seat of the Misericordia of Tiglio at the 10th annual meeting to taste and judge 15 new wines produced by 10 local families. To accompany the wines, abundant food was served...
On a clear cold November morning Past the centuries old Stone hearth still Down the broken stone road Over which pilgrims passed In the grove The plum purple olives fall In nets smoothed like bedspreads The sun warms our backs The penultimate picked or Vibrated The flavor of warm fresh oil on our lips With...
Yes The sunset was Spectacular The reclining figure’s forehead Was on fire And There was a patch Of pure blue Through a kaleidoscope Of white cotton batting But the story Was to the south Of the valley Where blueprint blue clouds Were suspended In a hologram Under the deep blue sea That this once...
The splash of tires On rain slick roads Through tunnels Of light green And wet black Invited Enticed Enthralled By water laden high grass Crimson clover Salvia and buttercup Along the populist parade route To this emerald city
Looking out Over a vast network Of mountain ridges Covered by dense forest Distant peaks Deep valleys Looking back On unexplored paths Bewildering intersections Irretrievable trails Breath taking climbs To summits Of heart rending beauty And slow arduous descents Looking in To find a vantage point
A blood orange sun hovers Behind buildings Anchored in an icy sea A boat races through cold air Away from the ancient city Past tall villas Flames engulf interiors Raging window to window A heart races Thumbs part Nostrils flare Soft liquid flesh yields A spritz of bittersweet Blood orange

Ends In a downpour Of water And words Sun Hits Warm wet dirt Vapors rise Grass glistens Scents Permeate Grapes swell Figs burst Chimneys Smoke Chill Creeps Skin crawls Light glows

Firm ripe red globes of pebbled flesh Hanging hidden beneath and between Toothed leaves In dank dirt On shadow washed banks That with a feather light fingertip touch fall Weightless into my palm Then the taste of sweet perfume
There is an alarm clock going off somewhere Beep beep beep beep beep beep But then it stops And then it goes off again Is it in one of the apartments below Beep beep beep beep beep beep Piercing urgent insistent Is there a warning buzzer on some machine here Did I misset the clock on the stove again Is...
A shy breeze breathes A heady mix of Penetrating perfume Acacia in bloom Heavy clusters of Delicate white petals Its lady finger leaves Lightly tracing shadows Intoxicating elderflowerâ€™s lace antimacassar Searching for a smooth sofa shoulder to lie on Standing firm full figs Not yet hanging soft Ever...
