1 Shot Wednesday: Aperitivo

Roman aperitivo

Last summer, our traveling group wandered through Roman side streets all afternoon. Working up a good appetite, a few of us sampled the food and drink alfresco-style. Add fun conversations about Rome and its culture–it’s easy to trigger the pleasurable memory whenever I see this picture. It took two hours to nibble away this platter.

Aperol Spritz, grilled vegetables, honey, Prosciutto, Salami, olive and artichoke spreads, cheeses, and Bruschetta.

Salute!

Big Lake/Three Forks

Late May, 2016. It was brisk and sunny when we explored the White Mountains in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest on the eastern side of Arizona. Jim and I rented a cabin next to a lodge in the village of Alpine. Up we aimed to mountain lakes to fish and kayak. While there was no precipice to remind us how high up we were, wandering on the windy mountain top with the expansive sky pressing down on my shoulders had me feeling free as a bird.

January 10, 2015

I was rummaging through a draw this morning and found a memory card. Sticking it in my computer, I uploaded over 800 pictures from a two month period in 2015. Isn’t it funny when you move to a new area, you are in a tourist mindset and take pictures of every bush, every corner of your surroundings? Now four years later, I hardly take 100 pictures a year of my corner of the world.

Here’s one of a Sedona rock formation. The family visited from out of state, and we took them out on a winter hike. Want perspective? Look closely at the bottom center of the photo, and you can see our friend who found a path of his own.
