just living

Aug 21, 2018

In recent years I have had the privilege of being a part of an annual week-long vacation of friends in the north of Italy. This year 250 people of all ages took part and each day was lived abundantly.

The group is diverse in every way. The age range was from 80’s down to one month. While most of those present now live in Italy, many countries were represented. At dinner one night the six of us at table were from Italy, Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal, Albania & New Zealand. Muslim & Catholic together.

The single uniting fact was a friendship that is born with a sense that there must be more to life than what the world offers.

A few images might convey something of the beauty of the days.
