23.12 – every year

23rd December is a date I cannot forget. First and foremost it is the birthday of my best friend of 27 years. It frightens me to think that I have known anyone who is not my own flesh and blood for that length of time. But I have. And friendship endures despite, or perhaps because of, our very different lives.

23rd December is also the anniversary of Tita Falcieri’s death. This year it’s 142 years. Such a long time indeed. Memory endures.

You can read my book ‘A Most Faithful Attendant – The Life of Giovanni Battista Falcieri‘ by purchasing it here.
