Who Doesn’t Want to be Unapologetically Happy?

When was the last time you were happy? Not just “content” or “not sad” but unapologetically, spontaneously, happy? Turns out, many of us have to think long and hard to remember the last time.  That seems crazy, right?

California Lighthouses [Discovery Spotlight]

“Lighthouses are noble human achievements, the material from whence comes drama, poetry, artistry, peril and rescue. They are guideposts marking watery highways leading to everywhere…” There are nearly 50 lighthouses located along the shore of California. As the population of San Francisco exploded from the 1849 Gold Rush, the great migration and demand for building materials increased the ship traffic along the coast.

Breathtaking Sorrento and a Wedding [Love, Italian Style]

A light breeze from the sea caressed my face. The air was warm. It was a pleasant mild morning. From afar, gazing in my direction was the quiet ruler of Napoli: the Vesuvius. Neapolitans have lived under its peaceful rule since 1944. Yet, it hasn’t always been that way. That fascinating Volcano has been responsible for havoc and destruction. Pliny the Younger, a Roman poet, recounts the last moments of Pompeii in a letter to his friend Tacitus – it is breathtaking. I was sipping a fresh Tassoni.
