The Early Bird Catches the Worm
This is my last blog of the year and, as I write, it reminds me of the Italian proverb, “Chi dorma non piglia pesce,” which literally translated means, “Who sleeps does not catch fish.” Yes, the early bird catches the worm. This picture, taken in Sestri Levante by my wife, Diane, shows
the calm of the evening and the expectation of a catch by the men. So this year, catch what you can by using your time well, by learning, by exploring and perhaps by recording. It would be a great idea if you wrote what you remember of your childhood, your parents and grandparents and of their immigration to America. If not written, it will be lost forever. So…arise early, catch the fish, catch the worm and make your year fulfilling.
