Dear Friends:

Greetings from Cortona, Italy! I arrived just in time for a little early Easter celebration. Easter isn’t celebrated quite the same in Italy as it is in the United States, no Easter Bunny or Easter egg hunts like we have. Since an American family has been renting my apartment, which is below my daughter Becky and her family’s, Becky took advantage of the opportunity and organized an early Easter egg hunt and cookout. What fun!

The Murray’s have since left, and my granddaughters Sofia and Michela are missing their playmates.

It’s been foggy here, but still beautiful. Cortona is just one of those perfect places that is gorgeous no matter what season or what weather. The weather is getting warmer, now, and I’ve been walking every morning, enjoying the beauty around me.

I left for Italy last Thursday, and Wednesday evening I showed my work and gave a talk at Raymond James Financial’s International Headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida. There were over 300 guests, and I must admit I was a little nervous about getting up in front of all those people. Lucky for me, the music that was supposed to play for my intro didn’t get played. Something very different came on instead and I started laughing. I wasn’t nervous anymore after that, and I’ve been told that my talk went very well. Thank you, Raymond James Financial, for a wonderful evening!

Until next week…
