So excited for you, Suzanne and looking forward to living a little vicariously through your posts.

Time to change the banner head photo? Some Spanish to further tantalize those of us still home doing laundry...

What a wonderful story! I feel the same way - I spent time in Europe when I was in college and don't know what happened to all of the years since then. I'm very excited about returning to Italy now that the nest has emptied. I hope that you do lots of writing about your experiences.

why the bottom of the ninth?

  • For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the game of baseball. Like life, it is a game that is measured in small moments, a single pitch, a missed sign, a sacrifice fly to right in the bottom of the ninth to score the winning run. Moments when things change, sometimes forever. The bottom of the ninth is about those moments.

  • "People will come, Ray... They'll walk out to the bleachers, and sit in shirt-sleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game, and it'll be as if they'd dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they'll have to brush them away from their faces. The one constant through all the years has been baseball. ... It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. People will most definitely come." - Field of Dreams, 1989
