Mona Lives Again
An acquaintance from the greater world of blogs, Dianne Hales, is publishing a new book about Mona Lisa’s life.
You might know Dianne from her blog http://becomingitalianwordbyword.typepad.com/ and one of her other books, La Bella Lingua.
When I think of Dianne and my cousin Jeanie, I feel like such a fraud. Both of them have studied and really learned Italian. Given the right set of circumstances, I am sure both of them would love to live/spend more time than a couple weeks in Italy every year. Yet, here I am, in Italy all the time, and I still speak like a recent immigrant. But I do try.
Anyway you might like this post about Mona Lisa’s connection to our area.
And I will end with just the faintest of rainbows.
