of chasing and living life to the fullest

This new year seems to agree with me.
I have resumed posting and will continue it as long as I feel okay.
And as long as ideas come into my head.

Thanks for all your visits !
( I am thanking past friends all over the world
who did not give up on me )


August 2013

I am finding that  “living life to the fullest” becomes difficult if not impossible as the years advance. Fortunately I have a treasure-trove of memories to remind me of when life was faster which I use for  my posts… including photos and things that I have written. Click the lists on the right.

Update February 4, 2015

My latest move to Colorado, prompted by family relocation, has proved very tough on me. I have problems related to the altitude, 5674 ft here at Lakewood in the Denver area ( about 1700 m ). I am now on oxygen 24 / 7 and much diminished in energy and mood. As a result this blog is going to slow down considerably. When and if my current practical problems can be at least partially solved, I will probably resume regular blogging. In the meantime there are over 400 posts to visit … ( click on the categories or the tags to open other posts ).

 Update October 25, 2015

My health has not been good since I came to Colorado. Advancing years and arthritis are making my life complicated, leaving little energy for blogging any more. As I did earlier, I again ask visitors to review my past activity. I do not know if there will be any further new posts … maybe … It was great while it was going on. I wish to thank all the many visitors that have stopped here and have become friends from afar. See the latest update in 2016 for better news !


Now go to see what valiant people are doing to give the cheetahs a future:

  2. Hi ! I went to your “About” page, I see you haved lived in many places, how wonderfull !!. Have you ever been back to Italy for a visit ? Take care !


    • Hi Gwennie, yes of course I have been back, but not for some time now due to my problems with arthritis and the fatigue that it brings. But Italy is in me. As they say … the girl can leave Italy, but Italy will never leave the girl. Cheers. v.


  3. Your about page did show up on the side on my iPad where it always was. Lovely photos too by the way. Arthritis and cold weather don’t mix well as I’ve found out. The chemo did a good job on me for that. Moving to Venice Florida (I wish Venice Italy😊) the warm humidity seems to soothe it quite nicely and the husband is retiring so we are following the sun. Have a lovely day my friend, stay warm, Kim


  4. Beautiful post!
    All the best!
    ps. Big cats are amazing!😀

  5. I completely understand!
    I didn’t write much on my blog in 2015 either—health problems and lack of energy drained the creative energy right out of me. Truth is, I am still extremely tired!
    I see your photos of the cheetah…and I remember the one I saw in Hawaii. Such intense, determined, powerful eyes. Glorious animal. I posted my photo of the Cheetah here:


What do you think? yes, no, maybe?
