Flowers from Florence For Rudy



Dear Art Lover,

     Today is the birthday of a lady I admire very much: Audrey Hepburn.  Not just a beauty, but a generosity of spirit with a grace and gentleness I could never hope to match.

     However, it is also the birthday of several friends [Lisa, Hilary, ].  But today I want to give a shout out to “my kid” Rudy Sanchez in Austin, Texas.  He is now 35 years old (or as the Italians would say, he HAS 35 years).  You taught me so much, Rudy, and I always wished that I could have done more for you. 

Happy 35th Birthday, Rudy!

Torta for TWO !  Cheesecake from Osteria Santo Spirito. mmm


     Because you are doing so well creating city gardens for the people in central Texas, I want to send you some image of flowers, sculpture, and more from my beloved city in Italia.  I wish you could have actually tasted this cheesecake from Osteria Santo Spirito with me.  It was nothing short of yummy!  [a little bird told me so. Hahaha]

      Incidentally, the crew of Ron Howard with actor Tom Hanks, among many others, are filming in Florence now on another of the Dan Brown novels.

Peace,
Kelly

Rudy looks great, Kelly. Please wish him happy birthday for me, too. I don't know him, but I know of him, and I have tremendous respect. Beautiful flowers in Firenze, makes me want to be there. Best, Candace.

Thank you, Candace. Sadly, this is an image we took many years ago when together in Texas. We will crate more this summer upon my return there.
I will pass on your greetings and well wishes. Thank you!

Ha! You solved the posting problem, Gene! Nice to see you online again. Rudy is indeed a lucky young man to have even people he has never met wish him a kindness! Thank you.
