Love Letters from La Pineta
"Love Letters from la Pineta" by DailyGood volunteer Jane Jackson is more than a book -- it is a living gesture of love that wings its way between the visible and invisible world. A book that embodies hospitality in its deepest sense. For to truly welcome love and all its bright gifts we are required to keep our hearts open when grief's shadow descends. And that is exactly what Jane does in this book letter by heartfelt letter. Written in the years following her beloved husband Blyden's passing, the letters are addressed to him, and to Jasmine their granddaughter who arrived on this Earth after he had "changed address." She writes them from Mornese -- the Italian town she and Blyden had dreamed of visiting together, and that Jane pilgrimaged bravely to alone after his transition. She finds miraculously waiting for her there in a community of less than a 1000 people-- a deep sense of home, and a sense of belonging." Read an excerpt here.
