Thirteen years ago today, Michael Morris introduced me to Renato Floris at the Convegno Valentino. Renato and I have ever since celebrated our anniversary on this day, after living together in four countries, traveling through many more, writing and publishing some 14 books or so last count, produced and recorded many podcasts and videos, fought the fight and certainly lived the love every single day.
Here we leave for Italy aboard the Grandi Navi Veloci. Seconds after this photo was taken, the ship left the quiet waters of the harbor and headed out into very rough seas. Happy Anniversary it is indeed!
