Hooray, a photo request from Marcy! This could be a fun game. If anybody has other
photo assignments, I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, Marcy wanted to see a photo
of Newcastle, so I'll start with a view from our house. Chilling and beautiful. sunset at around 10:30pm,
summer solstice, last week...I'll see if I can come up with a grisly city centre shot. - p

mini blog 1

in an attempt to communicate from my island i thought i would
start a mini blog, but it's not a blog at all just a sentence and a
photo, maybe every week or so. my first intention was to send this
out as a simple email, but i was pushed over the edge by a friend saying
that he would enjoy chatting with everybody on the list, and i thought that would be
a lovely way for friends to stay in touch.
it's been raining here in newcastle all day, but helen took me to italy last week. it was hot
and sunny and the hills around florence looked just like the california wine country.
venice is the most beautiful city i've seen so far in my long life. no cars. no planes! view from
our apartment in venice above....
