Yesterday was the anniversary of
Michelangelo’s birthday, as well as the birthday of my landlady, Miranda. Because you needed to know that! Her grandson Boris took me out for about six
hours. We drove around Istria because Miranda wanted me to see
something of the land. I have been
working so much trying to figure out my life and what is next for my art that I
hardly leave my room, except for grocery store runs and occasional walks along
the sea. I make jokes that the real
reason Miranda knocks on my door with some local treats is to make sure that I
have not succumbed in her home!
Boris and I visited briefly Novigrad, Poreč, Pazin, and Motovun. On the return from Motovun, we passed the home
of actor Anthony Hopkins, with a view of Grožnjan. I learned some unusual facts about Istria and Croatia. For example, the Croatians invented the
tie. It was then stolen by the French
when Napoleon discovered it.
