Been so long

I didn’t plan for this extended hiatus but somehow in the last few months I’ve had the worse time keeping up with any internet tasks. Even answering emails has become difficult. I’ve been busy but that’s not it, been busy before and still kept at blogging. I think it’s a little different this time, I’ve hit a point where it’s hard for me to find the mind space to do much blogging or surfing. I’m good and my family healthy, in fact Fio is growing beautifully, it’s a wonder every day … I guess it’s just that’s there’s not much internet power in me lately. I wouldn’t want to quit this, but I think you might continue to see some sporadic blogging from me. I still do keep up with SketchCrawl though … and two weeks ago on November 21st, we held the 25th World Wide SketchCrawl. Be sure to check out some of the amazing results from all around the globe at the forums!! Cool, see you around!

    Missed you! Life´s real and 3d, the internet efect on humans sucks infact, I can understand u.

    I´ve been revisiting the photos u uploaded and I love the part when u show the creative process on The Venice Chronicles, specially the part when it´s getting printed. Awesome! Lately I´ve been a lot into books and I mean the object itselfs and how they get real, and the time when they transmutate from the screen to the paper is simply magic! Thanks for sharing these Photos.

    Take care.

    Welcome back! Internet blahs is a normal thing to get (healthy, actually) especially when real life is good and demanding.

    Enrico, ever since we returned from the family reunion in Italy, I too have been plagued with a … hesitation to blog. a “not today” feeling that just keeps repeating itself. and yet … I love to blog – I have my “family” blog and my “creative adventure” blog — and even one called FRANKIE GOES TO ITALY which was started to chronicle my father Frank’s first trip to Italy at age 88. Now 89. I have barely kept it up. JUST BLOG FOR US WHEN YOU CAN and it’s all good. Love from your cousin in San Diego — Davi

    I just picked up your book “the Venice Chronicles” last night at Nucleus and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. WOW, what an incredibly cute, feel good, heart warming read. Thank you so much for your creation.

    I know exactly how you feel, Enrico. As much good as blogging does me, the mindspace cycles in and out of the required wavelength to actually do it.
    By the way, awesome and wonderful to see you so briefly at maverix. I hoped to pull you aside to say hello properly, but the night swept us in different directions it seems. Hope to catch up soon, my friend! -Ed Bell

    Hello Enrico, I finally had the chance to read your chronicles, and I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. The emotion is there especially when you go back where you grew up. There is something untold beautiful.
