I had lost my job and was recovering from depressing and confusing period. One day my wife saw that I was down again and suddenly said : 'make a trip to Italy, I know you would love to ; we cannot go together, go alone, but it will do you good. Take a last minute and go !' Indeed, I have a passion for Italy so I did not hesitate, but .... alone ??? why not, I thought, try it, think of it as a pelgrimage to strengthen !!! Took my PC with me to skype with my lovely wife who did gave me this fabulous gift !
The residence at Hotel Villa Fernanda were 7 day's in paredise. Artistic environment, brilliant warm colours of flowers at a background of a deep blue sky and see. Excellent pizza di Napoli with red wine, authentic ports en bay's, nice walks in shadowed paths between old farms and gardens. It was great, experiencing the nice things of earth, 'here an now', practicing the Buddistic skill of 'being present'.
I had learned some Italian language and could have a chat with the Villa Fernanda team : Fernanda, Valeria, Antonio, and a friendly older man. After a while, the atmosfere became very pleasant and warm : jokes, teases, laughers but also serious talks did not make me feel alone at all. I found out that they actually were a warm, respecting and intelligent family.
The last day, Wednesday 13 of June 2012, I will never forget ! I was enjoying the sun at the swimming pool when suddenly Fernanda brought me a delicious cake with banana aroma and some drinks. She explained that it was the 'onomastico' or nameday of Antonio, and that he then brings cakes for celebrating his Saint, Sant Antonio di Padua ; of course ! how could I have missed this ; I had jointed the celebration that morning in the local 'S.Maria delle Grazie' church and the priest had mentioned that name 'Sant Antonio di Padua' several times ! I never had such a kind of heart-warming experience, I had discovered the precious diamond : I realized I became part of their family !
