There where my roots are. And no, I’m not talking about my hair. I am talking about where my roots lie: namely in Italy. Southern Italy. One of the most amazing destinations: Apulia.
This place means a lot to me: it is where I can practice mindful breathing, and do it consciously. It is where my family originally comes from… I wish I had asked more questions of my grandmother and grandfather when they were alive. If I could go back in time, I would have told my teenage self to pay more attention to their narrations and anecdotes, their wisdom, and appreciate their presence in my life.
(I took this picture during my last holiday in August 2017 from the Basilica of Santa Maria “De finibus terrae”, which means “at the ends of the earth”. Also standing on this promontory with Santa Maria di Leuca is the famous lighthouse.)
