Greetings from lovely Italy. The Canadoca, Mr. DRL and I are on what I like to call the "completion bonus" - in this case a month long trip to Europe. I'm very glad I forwent the idea of getting the H. Stern necklace. This is much better ;)
I have heard well wishes from so many of my readers over the past month as I've neglected my blog and even forgotten to check my DRL email - so thank you for that. Yes I still will write from time to time, I still have a boatload of story ideas I just hadn't gotten around to posting. New ones will crop up from time to time as well, you would not believe how many Brazilians I've spoken with even today. They are everywhere! We're currently in Venice and can scarcely walk from one bridge to the next without hearing Portuguese. It's great. I left Rio over a month ago now, which is hard to believe. We are currently undecided about what's next for our family but I will keep my readers in the loop and of course try and heed my own advice in the meantime and bloom where I'm planted. Ate mais, DRL.
