Yesterday was the first really foggy morning in Parco di Monza of the season. I love fog, how it blankets everything and slowly reveals more as you move through it. I like this photo, which gives a hint of what the day is going to become, all sun and blue sky, while still showing the deep fog that exists down below. Maybe it's an analogy for the direction in our lives, when we are having trouble seeing where we might be going. Instead of looking forward, try looking up.
I'm inviting you to take another look today too. I know many folks use blog readers - I do! - and don't visit my actual site that often. I've made a number of changes lately, and so I'm inviting you to come by and take a look!
To motivate you, I'm going to have a little contest too... Come explore the site a little bit, then leave a comment with what "new" thing you specifically like on my blog, to enter to win. Contest will end on Sunday morning, 7am my time, and I'll randomly select a winner from all of the comments that include something specific. If you are new to my blog, just comment on what you liked the first time you visited! I would love to hear your thoughts.
What will you win? Hopefully, a set of postcards, either those pictured below or one of my new sets, if they arrive soon! I ordered more postcards in September (I still owe some to a few of you, I haven't forgotten) and they have been lost in the mail twice. I know, I wouldn't believe it either if it hadn't happened to me. So they should be reprinted and mailed this next week and I'll be able to get them out to you. If they don't arrive in a timely manner, I'll find some other interesting Italian thing to give away to you. I have some ideas brewing!
So it's kind of like a mystery giveaway - either the postcards or something behind door number two!
