Attraversiamo and ciao for now

I may not post here for a while.  I shall try and post photos from time to time but perhaps the thoughts/experiences from our unschooling days will be on hold.  I am devoting energy to our local Ning site:  

I am grateful for the wonderful comments, presence of people in my life thru this blog.  This blog is also a record of sorts for my self.  But for many weeks now i have been inspired to do other things, a dispersion of energy. So i feel i must disclose my lack of intention for this blog at this time. 

Recently in Rome someone who was helping me with navigating the streets and bus choices said "attraversiamo".  His face lit up when i recognized the word.  I only got it because i have read Elizabeth Gitbert's book a few times ... in which this word is given much space.... as it is absolutely entitled to.   Its a beautiful word and it pleasantly shocked me when i heard this word from a true Roman's lips.... ah Italian... i love thee.  This lovely word means, for those of you who have not had the pleasure, "let's cross over".   So for now i cross over to other things and sides and realms.

A series of photos from these past few weeks.  We've been to goa with my sister and her adorable baby.  We've done a road trip, played in new ways with Avni, discussed menus, had delicious wine, (raghu likes his watered down like he read about kids having wine in greece... My family and other animals by Gerald Durrell), visited a world heritage site church, played on beaches, built an elaborate sand castle that we decorated with beautiful sea-softened-stones, did water skiing, and generally hung about the house.
