Out of Firenze and Into the Fire


Just about over the jet lag that comes with returning home after a four-week teaching gig in Florence. And it’s a good thing, too, because I have a lot going on this month.

I hope to see you at any (or all!) of these events; and in case you are wondering, I will have books for sale, too. At special event prices.
