Kickstarter – Lemon Meringue Tart

Ciao ragazzi, I’m back from my Inner Series Retreat in Sicily and travels in Northern Italy. Traveling is always great fun and exciting, but I’m happy to be back after 3 weeks of non-stop adventure. I need some time to collect my thoughts of all those wonderful moments throughout the trip.

Meanwhile, I want to give you a snippet. The Inner Series Retreat is held each year at a different location. This time it was in Sicily at a private villa on the east coast, south of Taormina. With a hint of trepidation, I stepped off the van (with no luggage because the airline @#$%d up) and was immediately in awe of the beautiful setting and Mediterranean villa.

After settling in, a sunset yoga session, and a Sicilian feast, I slept like a baby and knew I would have an incredible week ahead. Though I knew the instructor and some of the attendees, it was my first time among a group of seasoned participants. The feeling of being the new kid persisted for a few days.
