So great seeing my Inkspired book out in Czech! As much as I love writing words with meaning it’s also interesting to sometimes write them in another language just for their shapes/spaces/rhythmn and simple joy of what they look like.

Repost from my favourite cultural historian knower of all artistic things @italyalexandra055  on a beautiful collaboration together - .
If you follow my Stories you know that they are often filled with details of paintings or themes I find particularly interesting when viewing a collection or exhibition. It could be colors, textiles, light, jewelry, writing, clouds... Drawing in close and really looking is, for me, an exercise in patience and in awareness. 
Given this practice, you can imagine how thrilled I am to participate in the MANIfestation retreat hosted by the fabulous Shari @soleyogaholidays and featuring a calligraphy workshop with the one + only @bettysoldi. 
Concentrating on the art, beauty and expression of our hands, this special retreat, called Manifestation (‘mani’ is Italian for hands), is an homage to everything about the hands. This 3-day wellness and artistic retreat (Thurs-Sun) is a customized package to help you refresh, recharge and spend time on yourself with the Renaissance City as your inspiration. 
We would love to have you. Please see link at @soleyogaholidays. ✨

Repost from @kirstenalana - WCW 💃🏻 FLORENCE EDITION 🇮🇹

Squeezing in under the wire for a positive WCW to tell you about one of the coolest women I’ve met while traveling. And that’s multimedia artist @bettysoldi. During my latest trip to Italy it was all about the people I met along the way. They made the trip for me. In Florence [Firenze] that included Betty, who hosted me at AdAstra which I talked about in my last post and who took the time to have breakfast with us at her other property @soprarnosuites. It’s on the same side of the Arno, a local area of the city known as Oltrarno. Posing in the outer gate of SoprArno before she sent us on our way to explore the city, I couldn’t help but want to take her photo. Her energy in the moment was infectious as was her energy pretty much the whole time we were around her. She translates that into her art which is largely based on her beautiful calligraphy but is not limited to. She has AdAstra and SoprArno with her husband and their story is such an intriguing one, filled with family histories in multiple countries and a rich tapestry of projects that feed both of their talent and skill sets.
.
In a funny “it’s a small world after all” twist, the book Soldi recently published actually features a photo of my dear friend @fleurishing’s tattoo. Maybe we were destined to meet. Either way, meeting Betty was further proof that no matter how wonderful a destination is, it’s the people that make the place. Without good people, travel is just a set of tickets and timelines and dots on a map.

A reminder that we are constantly in transformation. A bud becomes a rose and petals sometimes become fragrance, all fleeting. I love that in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Books I-II are already called The Divine Comedy - in 43BC...’In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas’ - “I intend to speak of forms changed into new entities”. One of my favourites of his tales is depicted in Pollaiolo’s ‘Apollo and Daphne’ where the god lusts after her and she escapes by turning into a bay laurel. The landscape is based on the Arno valley near here in Florence. See, the magic is in your hands and transformation is at your fingertips.

From the moment our stars collided I have been inkspired by this formidable being @neithersnow. Thought-provoking and mesmerising on a higher level, I adore when our inkstained hands cross - which is rarely but deeply. See marazepeda.com for her brilliant multifacetedness, meaningful words and work. Share/collaborate/support/ignite/inkspire each other.
