The Life I Imagined-A Memoir

Hello Dear Readers,

Well, I finally did it. A bucket list item that was on my list since I learned to read many years ago. I wrote a book. This is the story of my first year in Italy. The year I took a sabbatical from my job to live in another country and learn another language, two other bucket list items. The book is currently available in print and digitally on,, and Book Depository. It will soon be available digitally.

I hope that you will enjoy it! Please let me know.

  1. I got the book and read it in a couple days. I liked it a lot. I didn’t know about your previous blog until now. Congratulations!

    I found this blog a couple years ago and have been following it. I like it a lot also and hope you keep it going.

  2. Hi Karen
    Congratulations on the book. Your blog is just as interesting! Can you share where you studied Italian in Florence?

    • Thank you Kara. I originally studied at Leonardo DaVinci. It was excellent, but for me going every day for 4 hours for 6 months was too much. I have also studied at Giorgio La Pira which I liked, and now I study at a program offered through the government for stranieri which is at Instituto Calamandrei.
