Sunday morning I headed to Il Duomo to hear Matens in Gregorian Chant. It was hauntingly beautiful and penetrated the cells of my body like the singing bowls. No cameras during mass.
Then off to hunt destination number 1.
I Don't know if you were keeping track, I just realized that I missed number 3, Piazza Ognissanti. I will have to go there tomorrow.
The assignment over the weekend is to go to ten designated places in Florence. I first thought, "oh, how easy."
I began my journey toward number 10 Piazza del Carmine.
Still on my way to destination number six.
Now to wind my way through streets toward the Ambrogia in Piazza Ghiberti.
I needed my map at every street junction. It was a full morning of trekking all over half of central Florence. I started to get the lay of the land. I will finish the hunt domani/tomorrow on Domenica/Sunday after mass at Il Duomo.

The Eco-gastronomy, sustainable food and food affordability conversations appear to be happening each in their own little vacuum. The challenge is to get them to collaborate. Where can they meet and agree?
Today we heard a lecture on biodynamic farming.
