Sorry, but my virtual florist ran out of yellow mimosa just as I walked into the shop. I hope the bright pink flowers will do in a pinch.

As the proud father of two outstanding ladies and the grandfather to one incredibly sharp little girl, I tip my Borsalino to all of the great gals out in the blogosphere who follow my scribblings. All the best to you today, International Women’s Day.

BRAVA!

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him in and out of 49 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along cobblestone streets that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway somewhere in the Veneto. You can also follow his dispatches from the cobblestone at TravelingBoy.com and ItalianNotebook.com.

  1. Dear Tom: What a lovely gesture! I can almost smell them. Think of you often; hope you are well in beautiful Italy. Seven inches of snow here yesterday! Also beautiful

  2. I can’t help smiling. In the northern hemisphere, you are into spring flowers, while it is autumn here in the Antipodes. Anyhow, those petunias look great, while here the lisianthus are good if the natives don’t bring joy. Of course, our roses are into their fourth flush of summer too..
