“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilization, and find the globe granite underfoot,”Robert Louis Stevenson.
Many have asked and to many I have answered, but time has come to make this “move” official since I have finally found a house 🙂
I am on my way to depart beautiful Washington, D.C. toward a new life adventure in New Orleans with final destination few months later in the Brooklyn hood of New York City.
Chance wanted that one silly Friday afternoon, I walked in my usual Vinyasa Yoga class and my lovely Yoga teacher shared with me some piece of information about a photographer she was friend with who needed an assistant for a project he was going to put together in Louisiana.
So, here came my opportunity.
I have often talked about having chosen the journalism path to travel and to experience the “globe granite underfoot,”and when the occasion seemed to have knocked at my doorsteps, I opened. So here I come. New Orleans’s inhabitants watch out, you will have one more crazy Italian on the loose on your streets during the Carnival!!!
I will make a quick (one month) pit-stop in Italy on my way to NOLA, but from Jan. 25 on until beginning of April, you will find me in the post-Kathrina region photographing (and hopefully still teaching Yoga) as many hours a day I can.
Thanks, DCists, for these wonderful 2.5 years of love, growth and political savviness. I shall return!
P.s.–I will be posting as much as I can about what I will be shooting, seeing, feeling, eating and, if time allows, I will resume “the Yoga Column” for once and for all. In the mean time, stay tuned and hang on to your chairs. More to come in few days.
