Festa di San Giuseppe-Feast of Saint Joseph

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” —Umberto Eco

“Credo che ciò che diventiamo dipenda da ciò che i nostri padri ci insegnano nei momenti strani, quando non stanno cercando di insegnarci. Siamo formati da piccoli frammenti di saggezza”.

—Umberto Eco

When I was a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods followed by my six cats and two dogs.
