Heading home

And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be,
Homeward bound...

I got a call from my realtor in Norcia saying that the city engineers have cleared my house as safe for occupation. Or at least, the middle floor flat is, which is the one I live in. I think the upstairs flat will have to be repaired. In any case, I’m going back to Norcia on or around February 15th. I’ve been in Germany, flat and cat sitting for a friend for a week but will be back to Italy tomorrow by train. After that, I think we are going to try to rent a car or a small SUV to get me, the little bits of stuff we brought down and the kitties back home as soon as possible. (More.)

Keep praying though, that the quakes stop, or at least that the house doesn't fall on us.

But the supermarkets are open again and they've started opening the centro. The time has come.

Good luck Hilary. Prayers continuing that your will be safe. By the way, recently met a newly traddie Carmelite who is a fan of your blog posts. Chloe

I'm so relieved that you are safe and homeward bound, Hilary! Please forgive my forwardness, sometime I forget we haven't been properly introduced. Bubye!
