Whether you are looking up at Cortona, or being embraced by its strong ancient walls, you feel enamoured.
At least, this is what happens to me.
Born and raised in this sweet stone nest, still, after 29 years, I fall in love with it every morning as soon as I step out of my little house.
I feel like I’m forever living on holiday.
The only thing missing is the sea!
But imagine Cortona as an island, in the middle of any sea.
“Non si può avere tutto nella vita”… “You can’t have everything in life”
But let me tell you a secret,
There are certain days in Cortona when you can actually spot a very special ocean…
But not in May,
May’s all for cherries and blossoms and bees
and fields of poppies could be the only seas.
Writing rhymes. This is pure love, pure cortonese love.
