            POSITANO–. Through the years that I have beeen in this paradise I have found myself staring into the eyes of thousands of foundlings newly arrived on the Amalfi Coast. Foundlings mind you in the sense of “once I was lost and now I’m found”. That is to say enlightened.  And what is it that these red eyed and tired travelers have found coming into “our” territory. I’ve been here long enough to call it that and to have it acknowledged back to me.

                                 What is it they’ve found? A treasure, a treasure of inestimable worth. They’ve found something they forgot deep inside themselves. A way of life so full of color and day to day joys that the awakening instead of a shock is quite gradual. They don’t quite understand what is happening to them. Their breath begins to lengthen, no more short intakes. Their heart rate begins to calm. Their blood pressure undulates like the waves of a calm sea and their repetitive,compulsive thoughts dissolve.
