Rehosting Posts from our Italy 04 Experience Here

I'm in the process of moving all of the content from our Italy 04 website here at Blogger.

It's interesting to reexamine old posts.  Here is a great one by Sarah on her impressions of 'Social Life in Siena.'  Pretty amazing insights, especially considering that it was TEN YEARS AGO!

Maela's Blog

My niece Maela is blogging here.  Check it out.  I think she's doing a great job thinking really hard and sharing her views about being 17, female, and growing up in an age which is unprecedented in so many ways, but especially because we are so connected, so inundated with information, so starved for attention. I appreciate it because I think that despite the 'over sharing' that we take for granted, there is far too little reflection going on in our society, not enough depth in our analysis, and a real dearth of sincerity.  We live in a sea of impressions and spin, but precious little integrity.  

Well, this is what Maela is blogging about, with depth, sincerity AND integrity.

And sharing THAT is unusual.  I like it.

I'm sharing that because you might like it too.
