Freedom…….in Pisticci.

It is beginning to feel a lot like it used to be, before, in Pisticci. I imagine it is easier here than in the north of Italy where a lot of people died and so people will be grieving.

Today when I walked through the piazza there were a lot of people about. There was a lot of noise. People talking and shouting . Just like it used to be.

The sun was shining and I was smiling because everything looked beautiful…. just like it used to be.

I went home via the side streets and thought that it would not be much of an exaggeration to say that round every corner in Pisticci there is a photo or painting opportunity. I was feeling just like I used to feel.

As far as I know there have been no more cases of the virus originating in Basilicata for more than 2 weeks. In that time we have been free, some much more than others, and so far nothing has happened. Maybe we are safe, at least for the summer.

I heard about the art competition I am taking part in. It will be held in the piazza in August. That is a bit different but it is happening.

Tonight am planning to go out with two friends and sit in the piazza, watch people go by and maybe eat a bit pizza. Not exactly what I used to do but the lovely burger restaurant has closed down ..I don’t know if it was because of the virus or not.

But , it is like everything is coming back to life like it used to be. It makes me very happy…..

This morning on my way back from mural painting.
This little place is for sale.
This is much more imposing in real life.
Like I said….round every corner a photo/ painting opportunity.
