I'm here

Just where I'm meant to be with Diana and Di at the Beautiful Truth retreat in the hills of Piemonte near the town of Acqui Termi. It's beautiful, restful, peaceful, a soul place. I've had a swim the pool, coerced by Sandy. It was a bit chilly for this hot house plant. The thunder is rolling impressively around the hills, the darkness forked by lightening. Evening rain, warm rain after a hot and sticky day.

So wonderful to see Di again, it's been two and a half years, a bit long really, and of course we picked up just where we left off. There are some stories of 6 degrees, lots of connections with people. Sandy from Auckland and I discovered we knew lots of the same people. A story Lyn and Keri will enjoy. This evening we ate well and learnt about our external flashes, how to angle these to get the best results. Here's our dessert and a couple of kitchen practice shots. Yes, it was as delicious as it looks. And so was the local vino, the company and the conversation.
