I Dieci Comandamenti


Happy Shavuot today! 
It's the Jewish festival celebrating the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai (and also the grain harvest). 
Just before my recent trip to Italy I bought this little Holy Land olive wood Tablets of the Covenant, in a Jerusalem church. 
The Ten Commandments -- in Italian!

Chag sameach, happy holiday! 

And to the Christian friends, happy Pentecost! 
Same day.

A pink house


A pink house in Calabria, south Italy.
Taken quickly from our moving bus.
Yes, bella Italia!   I am in a writing seminar on Memory and Heritage given by the University of Calabria's Italian Diaspora Studies.
My first time in this country and loving it!

PINK is the theme for June 1 for City Daily Photo group.  See what other bloggers have come up with at the website.
