Some days more than others I really feel like I am living on an island.
The incredible view we caught to the north this past weekend was a simple reminder of this fact. In the picture above you can clearly see the craggy outline of Taormina on the left which appears to be meeting the toe of Italy, otherwise known as Reggio Calabria, on the right. I am always surprised to realize how close these two masses of land really are, as we don't usually get such views from where I live.
I do find living on an island to be special, which must have something to do with all that coastline, views like the one I saw this weekend, crazy island winds and the like. Come spring, I also find the scent of the air on an island to be special too.
