I have said it before, I will never be freshly pressed…I just know it. However I know people who have been…I follow them, and they follow me, so I am thinking in a sort of connected way…I can claim “been freshly pressed” Right? No…ok, then if you say no.
Anyhow, one of my friends and a blogger who I follow, Michael- TBA is a freshly pressed recipient, and featured my poem “Coffee” a while back on his blog while he was enjoying the sights, foods, wines, and the many wonderful regions of Italy. Now if that doesn’t make me connected to freshly pressed; people I don’t know what else will…except maybe this…
TBA sent me some of the pictures from his many visits to Italy, and asked me to run with it… he said there is a real story to the pictures but I have no idea what that story is.
I accepted the challenge and came up with some poems and an overall story to what I perceived from the pictures…he is featuring them on his very poular site today, as part of his IMO Thursday series. How kind of him!
Tomorrow, he will reveal the real story behind the pictures, a continuation of his ongoing posts about his top 25 Italy moments. The pictures he sent me are from his #10 moment. I have never been to Italy, but have heard it is a beautiful place…Michael and his many stories, and pictures take the country and its many cities and regions to a whole new level. His site will make you fall in love with this country even if you have been before…and I am most certain Italians would be very pleased with his many depictions of their country.
If you are a lover of good food, great photography, fine wine, and well told stories then you must check out Michael at TBA, I am sure you would be taken in by all the greatness his site has to offer. I am humbled to be his featured writer this week. I think he might have been too kind with his opinion of me, but I accept it graciously.
Please stop by TBA and see for yourself what I am writing about, read my post and his many fine ones and tell him what you think of them. Also tomorrow, he will reveal the real story, you wouldn’t want to miss that. Let’s see if I came close to the real jist or flopped.
As always thank you for indulging me and giving my heart and passion a place to thrive. I remain always grateful, humbled and appreciative.
You can also add and follow him on twitter and pinterest. Now, off to TBA.!!!
