I guess it's for when I want to share a more lengthy ramble (with photos) with the world beyond just my friends and acquaintances, in the hope that it will add some value to others' lives. Or just their day. Or just their hour. That's actually worth a lot, IMHO. With the butterfly effect and all, putting a useful or validating thought in someone's head or a smile on someone's face can have a positive effect with ripples that go well beyond one person's momentary experience.
That's the loose theme of this blog post: things that have lately put a useful or validating thought in my head or smile on my face. Hopefully at least one will do the same for you.
I've always wanted to learn Italian, because I love learning languages and it's such a beautiful one. I tried before but didn't stick with it. I came across this podcast when I wasn't looking for it and found the lessons to be brief and engaging, with charming personalities doing the teaching and learning at a pace that's just right for me. I'm loving it! So easy to improve little by little just by listening to it while I do things around the house (or take an actual coffee break)!
