Street Views, Verona

I'm now in Verona... and in the middle of the Food and Fashion Retreats.

Here are a few images of the views I see from my apartment window. The first weekend, it was dance and music... and then a parade in Medieval fashions.

Love the ballerina.

Knitting in Austria... Dessert

While visiting Vienna a few weeks ago, I happened upon the window of a knitting shop. It was so 'Vienna', pastries, that is.

Here are some images to share.

Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna

As a big Klimt fan, I was overwhelmed with all the Klimt art I saw while in Vienna a few weeks ago.
And as far as museums go, the Kunsthistorisches museum is at the high end of the list for amazing buildings. 

A view of how the art is hung in the museum.

The stairwell

And of course, the museum cafe

More views of the art

Klimt's art... note the women up high

Café in Vienna

For those of us who are coffee lovers, Vienna, Austria is a haven. Consider that you have great coffee, amazing atmosphere in many of the older cafés, and simply an ambience of creativity.

A few shots of the cafés and of coffee itself.

I wish I had written a poem, or worked on a new song....

And here is how I am celebrating my return. A stroll through my rose garden, and a few selfies with my gatherings.

San Marcos

Here is what greeted me on my door after 3 days of fire evacuation. My home was threatened by the Coco fire, one of 9 fires that swept through San Diego county in the past week. The goal was to keep people from entering their homes, for their own safety.
