And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.


William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

this is the quote Wordpress uses as a default to inspire its users to write. Shakespeare proves his relevance yet again—love it. P.S. and it worked! for me at least.

When I left Georgina, she was restoring the 200-year-old frescoes in her 200-year-old villa in Matera, slightly south of Naples.

"Go explore the old town," she said.

Her euphemism for “get lost for a while.”

(Actually, her villa was young by Matera’s standard, where I discovered many of the houses are carved from old caverns that are some 9,000 years old.)

After an exhausting day of “exploring,” she later restored my spirit at Le Botteghe by arriving not in her plaster-spattered overhauls, but rather in a dress whose stunning color was more than able to compete with the Matera sunset.

The approving looks from diners at surrounding tables seemed to concur.

Georgina’s Sunset Polka-Dot Dress (No. 3692). Long, graceful, sleeveless, vintage cut in 100% cotton. Fully lined in cotton. Invisible side seam zipper. Mid-calf length. Band collar leads into a slightly curved V. Shirring along waistband. Side seam pockets. Separate wide self-belt adds a graceful touch.

Timeless femininity punctuated with tiny, almost innocent, raised white dots. Imported.
