Clouds often do have silver linings.

A big thanks to all of you who left messages of support regarding my mother in law. I’m pleased to be able to say that, although she is still in hospital, she is making progress, and is feeling a lot less poorly than she was a couple of weeks ago when she was rushed into hospital with breathing difficulties.

My other half is relieved, as you would imagine, but knows that her mum is not out of the woods just yet. Still, things are looking up, which is good news.

The downside is that our proposed holiday in Corsica has been cancelled because my other half wants to spend some time with her mum this summer.

Looks as though summer will be a little quiet this year, but, then again, there are plenty of places around Genova that I’ve never seen, but would very much like to. Lots of fodder for my camera too!

Italy Is In – An Italian Art Project

It’s Giancarlesso’s fault. He gave me the idea, and so I’ve been setting something up to help showcase contemporary Italian artists and, of course, their work. Let’s just say that I’m hoping to become a sort of art a&r man, or, rather ‘art hunter’.
