Having Ame, Rosy, and Laura on our side of the Atlantic is an exercise in bewilderment, for all. They get the opportunity to experience our America with eyes wide open in the same way we appreciate everything about their special country. If I had $5 for every inquiry Ame has made over the past six days, I wouldn’t need an AMEX for MY upcoming flight to Roma. This Q & A is part of how he and I build community with each other. It’s also how Larriano continues to develop as it’s own linguistic communication method. Without a shared language, we meet somewhere near the equator of English and Italiano. It’s in that very spot that our book of international friendship gains another page. I’ve come to absolutely love and treasure these days of my life. This afternoon, when all three Tuscans go wheels up, their luggage and their souls look a whole lot different than they did six days ago.
