"Italian Ruin" a brightly colored painting of a typical farm building in Italy by S. Frank

Old structures that have not been occupied for many years lay empty on many farms in Italy. Oh, they are used as storage sheds for hay or farming tools, just not people. Now,with the recent increase in interest brought on by the success of "Under The Tuscan Sun" and "A Thousand Days in Tuscany"as well as the traditional pull Italy has on many Americans, the Italian real estate market is flooded with property like the one pictured above ,"For Sale". What is it that pulls so hard on our heart strings? For me it is the pace of life. The slowing down, so one can enjoy and savor the moment. It was this that was the hardest for me to adjust to when I first returned from overseas, the rat-race. Always running, and always further and further behind. Over twenty years later and I am ready to slow down. I am ready to listen to my Heart!

What pulls on your heart strings? What is it saying?

Enjoy Life Now...
It has an Expiration Date
