|I see an Italian accent to all YOU touch Jo!
I loved reading your Bio page! I see a passionate spirit in your eyes! (Italian) Ok... I'm French and English! but I want to go to Tuscany badly, even in my dreams I've been there!
I enjoy your writing style and the passion in your Soul/Spirit! San Donato, never heard of it but I feel through your imagery it is STUNNING!
"Cobblestone Roads That Lead You Home" What a treat! I felt I was THERE! Love cobblestone, that what had me gravitating to you, then Tracking/Following your heartstrings! I will be back, going to work now - Have a warm and inspirational day! Stop by my sweet corner of this beautiful den, if you can!
Warmest Blessings of Love, Peace and Bright Light, Warrior Purple Lady SHEExooo

|A strong presentation to the senses brings me close and in harmony with the warmth of the people and the charming surroundings in this unpretentious write of a small Italian village. All I need now for a contented heart is a bite of fresh fruit and a small capuccino, if you please.
"Cobblestone Roads That Lead You Home" -- Even the title draws one in to comfort and repose.
Very nicely done!

|Great portrait of a warm town full of genuine people:-
"Hear the people banter in the streets as they share stories of past wars; see the sweat of the honest laborer at day's end as the voices of the townspeople bargaining with the vendors fill the streets."
Old world charm, leisurely pace of life, people with time to stop and talk about the weather, the price of bread, time to notice the crimson splash of roses on the balconies.

|Sounds like a great town. Glad you described it so fantastical. Would like to stroll there. We do have a river walk to stroll up in Harrisburg, PA, the capitol of Pa. It is a nice scenic stroll with river boat cruising by, bicyclers and joggers galore. Benches to sit on when tired out. It is a great walk for all to get some exercise.|

You've indeed captured it all with your awesome prose, "Cobblestone Roads That Lead You Home." I can close my eyes and see, feel, taste and smell the air of "San Donato Val Di Comino." Makes me feel like I was there. Thanks for sharing your gift. My best, Gloria

|another great atmosphere capturd in words. I love to thikn of the smells and sights you describe in this poem... all good descriptions; the roses on the balconies, the humble colors of the houses, the smell of food... a picture of a nostalgic heaven.|

|Your textually vivid depiction passionately brings the very cobbles of the streets to life. It also creates an environment where even the stranger can make this lively and genteel location his own memory, indeed, it evoked memories of my own Scottish birthplace. All our senses are engaged throughout this atmospheric, linguistic stroll.
Yes, cracks in our lives do appear and sometimes sections of our foundations crumble, but our inner strength, faith and passion for life and our heritage overcomes and sustains us.

A home run again! Bravo!!
You painted a nice visual picture of what you have experienced in Italy. You have inspired me to write a poem about my trips to Italy.
I could easily live in Italy. It's the only country I love more than America. Thank you for sharing!
