As I sit and look out the window at the sunny terrace, the sunny pool, the sunny green hills beyond that, for all the world, look like Umbria, I feel a million miles away from home.  I’ve signed books at Chino Farm and Warwicks in La Jolla, and taught an amazing private class in Rancho del Lago.  It’s been a glorious trip, and here are some sights to share! Thank you, ALL!

      I miss seeing you and California. Had perfect weather every day. Now, of course, it is cloudy….but sunny here in Normandy!
