I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last posted something here. It happens to me always, I close my eyes and when I open them again half a lifetime has already passed. I wonder if someone missed me while I was gone but realize they would have contacted me if they did.

I'm in Rome, I've been here for a couple of weeks with my dad. He acts as if nothing has happened between us, like I wasn't away from him for almost a year without calling. In a way it's a good thing, I can pretend too and be that little innocent girl I was for so long.

He's promised to take me to Milano soon, I remember lazy lunches at the Rinascente in the middle of the hot summer and how he would buy me pretty things just because he loved me.


  1. Well, you haven't contacted me either...

  2. While I didn't email you, I did wonder a few times when you would wr ite again, and here you are. Great writing as usual.

  3. Stephanie, isn't it interesting how we let things slide, especially when they are our parents. They can ignore us but as soon as they pay attention, we are right there...

    It's kind of sad that almost a whole year would go by without him contacting you...

  4. Yes, Stephanie, you were missed.

    I'm glad you're back, and I'm really glad you're having a good time with your father.

    Maybe neither of you are pretending.

  5. Ah, Rome... I can only dream of the beauty and relaxing feeling of being somewhere... else.

    Enjoy it babe, you deserve a vacation! <3

  6. You are in one of the most beautiful city in the world. Chin up lady :) :)
