Day 99...last day in Italy

I was for sure when this day came that I would want to reflect on everything that has happened.  But I don't.  I want to extend much gratitude for what has occurred here, but I want to focus on tomorrow and the next day and next week.  The attributes of being here has made me want to create tomorrow for me, not because of my surroundings.  I went for a hike today and all I could think about is what I am going to create when I get home. I was worried about losing that feeling of intense creativity, but I realized it's not Italy, it's me.  I will forever have it and no matter where I am, I can express it.  Don't get me wrong, I believe that this time by myself has been exactly what I needed artistically, but it would have occurred anywhere that I found myself in semi seclusion.  Yes, the sunsets were magical and the rolling Tuscan hills were delightful, but the sun will always set and the beautiful landscape will always be there, you just have to open your eyes to it. That has been the biggest lesson, love where you are, love what you do and love who you are. Italy was my 'love' in my pseudo eat, pray, love parallel,  and that is exactly what I have done, loved.
