Sheila: I love this entry and also the one of last week, (but last week was the beginning of Covid for me, and tho mild-ish, I was distracted!) and this week, I love reading about your days with your Dad on his birthday,

Knowing all the family probably makes the story more lovable, but I am sure that I would enjoy reading your story if I had never hears of Charlie Pierce! Very touching and very well written!

Thank you, dear Betsy! I always love hearing from you. The days in Rome with my father were very moving and I was happy to record our memories from then so we never forget them! I hope you are healing post-Covid. We were stricken with the flu which was miserable. Better now!

Thank you, Katie. Yes, do click on the link about my touring Rome with my father when you have a moment. It’s a piece about aging and parenting our parents, all of which I’m sure you can relate to! ❤️

Sheila! I love your recommendations and wrote some of them down. Wishing you and yours a Healthy, Happy 2023!!!

I myself am doing more research on my two artist great great aunts who died during the 1940's in Berlin - both of them single. I will need a tree house somewhere to write the story. :) xoxo Katharina

Dear Sheila,

Your memories of touring Rome with your father are beyond beautiful..tender, charming, loving, moving. If I were to express what our farmhouse rental in Millerton means most to me, at the very top would be the proximity to your parents. Between graduation and 2022, we rarely saw one another. However, when were again together upstate Cathy and I felt we had been close friends forever. The fact that I could imagine myself in your father's place as you toured Rome speaks to your eloquence.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

xoxo...Dimitri

Thank you for your very kind words, Dimitri. It was a special time in Rome for us, and I’m happy that our memories resonate within you, too, somehow! Believe me when I say that my parents are equally as happy to have you as neighbors in the Hudson Valley. Please keep an eye on them for me as they move out of our family home. 😢❤️Happy New Year and many thanks again, Sheila
