Day 12:  I am grateful for the ordinary elegance which is travel.

Veil’d Melancholy has her sovran shrine,
Though seen of none save him whose strenuous tongue
Can burst Joy’s grape against his palate fine…

                                 “Ode on Melancholy” ~ John Keats

We honeymooned in Italy, and ever since our leisurely break one day in Montalcino, we still giggle at the thought of American potato chips served with the most exquisite Italian red wine, our favorite and beloved Brunello.

Ah, Italia!
