We were nearing the point of no return but for the time being everything was still okay, celebrations were in order, only in our home the direction was already prominently displayed: Straight to Hell.
This is our November for my Calendar series for which each month I choose twenty photos from the same month one year ago.
November here is dry and warm until it isn’t and a mini tornado hits and uproots thousands of trees and the sea rises and makes lakes where there were fields. And the next day a rainbow makes everything okay.
On the afternoon of the tornado we went to the theatre, for the first time in Italy, and bestia waited in the car, and then we drove back home for 50 km in such a rain that I had never seen.
Other than that, it was pleasant. One weekend, by chance, I discovered Pasolini’s hood in Rome. Long time no Rome.
Last November week we spent in Slovenia where my parents celebrated their golden love in a Michelin-recommended restaurant and with a surprise accordionist later at home.
It’s one year since and changes are drastic. Who would have thought that my 50th birthday party in May would only be held online.
In our home we turned the record cover over too. Now it says Should I Stay or Should I Go.
One more month of 2020. That went fast. Some good news around too. What I wish for all of us is to sail between these two peninsulas wisely and with good fortune on our side.

Happy hiding and finding! And now, here is my last November.
Finally, allow me to add a private gallery. At the end of last November my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and we were there to do it with them. This year I won’t be anywhere near, nor with my sister and my only cousin whom I see so rarely, other relatives, my two oldest friends. Here we all are. The last photo shows amore’s opinion of slow food and its portion sizes. 😀
