The Quiet Season

View of Amalfi from Above

Things have been pretty quiet around here on Ciao Amalfi lately, and I apologize for the lack of updates! In some ways it’s quite natural as life slows down this time of year to savor a bit of quiet on the Amalfi Coast. After the buzz and celebrations of the holidays, the rest of January and February are very quiet months around here. This is the time of year to rest, enjoy a bit of holiday time and to mentally and physically prepare for the busy season ahead. Easter comes early this year at the end of March, which is usually the kick-off to the holiday season on the Amalfi Coast.

Despite the lovely quiet that I’ve been surrounded with, this year has gotten off to an extremely busy start. The days of full of the click click click of my fingers dancing across the keyboard trying to keep up with a rush of writing work. I love the way this work inspires and challenges me. I’m exceedingly grateful to be busy with work I love and to be working with people that bring joy into my life. (Although watching my husband relax during the winter season has made me seriously reconsider the value of seasonal work!)

As the weather improves and beckons me out with my camera again, there will be more life and activity on Ciao Amalfi. The new season is coming … and with it sunny days, lots to do and all the beauty of the Amalfi Coast to enjoy!

    Hi Laura, Good to have you back on F B with stories and photos of our beloved Amalfi. Do hope the writing is going well for you.Hope also that everyone in Amalfi has had a quiet,restful couple of months. Bet the paint pots and sweeping brushes will be out soon getting ready for the new season. It is still very cold and often dreary here in England- but at least the light is getting earlier and later in the day AND the daffodils are blooming. Have a good Easter. Jean

      Hi Jean, Thanks for your lovely comment and happy Easter wishes to you, too! Spring is still very slow coming here, but it’s finally started to take off in the last week. I hope it warms up soon in England and that the daffodils survived the cold snap! Warm wishes from Amalfi, Laura

    Love following your posts. I’ll be back soon to begin moving into my new little Atrani apartment! So your writings are keeping me connected until I return. However, the summer warmth of Rio de Janeiro is wonderful at the moment. Warmest regards from Ipanema!

      Ciao Linda! So happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying good weather in Rio de Janeiro. This has definitely been a spring to miss on the Amalfi Coast … nothing but rain rain rain and more rain! 🙂 But spring is finally starting to arrive. I look forward to meeting up again when you’re back this way! A presto … Laura
