When the whole world around you is buzzing and spinning with energy and life, when the chills on your arms radiate so wildly they create not chill but warmth, when the coliseum is standing tall and proud before you as you work, you have to take a moment to just breathe. Breathe in, open up and whisper a small but deep word of thanks. Because to be cognizant and clear of the abundance and blessings around you is what experiences like these are really all about.
And I’m like a crystal right now. Clear and shining and reflecting all this beautiful Italian journey has to offer.
Ciao, bellas. Off to shine some more for now…
