Crazy, this life. Right now I am sitting in an empty bowling alley. “The House of the Rising Sun” is blaring in the background.

I’m writing this on a Saturday afternoon from our church’s meeting place, La Via. Two floors below me people are rushing around downtown trying to finish up Christmas shopping. Traffic will be a nightmare in a couple of hours. The kids are all on Christmas vacation (and not a day too soon – we were…

I think we just celebrated our seventh Thanksgiving in Italy, and every year we get astonished looks when I tell people the size of the turkey and that we make desserts out of pumpkins.
