{Venezia on the horizon}

Hi blogland!
These last few weeks have been incredibly busy--I can't keep up. But guess what? I'm off to Venice next week! It's for work--I'm giving a paper at a conference...you can read the programme here.
guess where?
{Centro Tedesco di Studi Veneziani, Palazzo Barbarigo della Terrazza}
um, yeah, in THAT building, right on the Grand Canal!
For the first few days I'll be staying in a lovely 15th-century palazzo turned into a hotel called Ca' San Polo...then on the weekend my parents join me and I've rented a little apartment with a balcony on a small canal near San Zaccaria.
Totally looking forward & remembering fond times I've had in Venice on previous trips:

Lots has been happening on my little house--picture rails are up, wardrobes are almost finished in my bedroom. I've just been a bit too busy to post, but will try to catch up soon.

Sorry gents & ladies but today will be a very short post as I'm in the throes of so many deadlines I can't quite keep up!

{quotable thursdays}

Hello Blogland!
How is everybody today? My latest publication is out, which is thrilling...but in the mean time I'm working on a whole load of new publications and I'm feeling rather overwhelmed. However, I feel blessed every day that I get to think for a living and do what I really love. So this quote today is about being drawn by the thing(s) you really love...

Just a little word of warning: it's not always easy! It took me ages to finally get a job doing what I love...Drawn by the things you love, will certainly provide you with a more fulfilling and rewarding life, but just be prepared for a bit of a bumpy road. However, who was ever satisfied when things were just simply easy?
