Dormant but not Extinct

Vesuvius Tote Bag - m.joy
Here is a link to more of own Photos on FAA as Tote Bags – there are 3 sizes and you can play around with where the main image is placed.

These Tote Bags currently ship only from FAA in the US and take a week or two to print – but they are worth it.

They are very strong – but soft, professionally finished and the image is on both sides.
Wish they shipped from the UK as well. Our percentage is currently minimal to keep the costs down

This photograph is taken from a ferry looking back to Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples and there were dolphins swimming around the ship.

We were staying on a volcanic island Ischia near to Capri and had travelled down in a small rental car from Venice. The funny bit – we were encouraged to take extra insurance and reallised why as we travelled further south as the cars looked more and more roughed up especially when we got caught in traffic about 5pm in the center of Naples – but love Italy and would go back in a heartbeat.

Try to

Today is one of those days, pause and remember – just the wind thru the trees, the early dark, an empty landscape.

Grateful for kindness we were shown and sad about the rest

“Landscape can be a solace to the exile, but it can be hard to contemplate the beauty of lakes and mountains without thinking of home, or the bitter circumstances and long journey that have led from there”
