Where does the writing fit in, you ask? Florence has become one of my best writing venues. I know of four libraries where I can write, plus a café, which gives the added benefit of cappuccino and brioche. I’ll write in the morning and visit my favorite museums and churches in the afternoon. Since I will not be there during the tourist season, entry lines will be non-existent. I will miss eating outside and wandering about in the evening, but I’m open to new rhythms.
