Somewhere Off Of Italy’s Big Toe


Well, the whole iPod to laptop to flashdrive to desktop digimage transfer plan ain’t gonna happen. Apparently firewire cables are very 2002 around these here watery parts. But in the meantime I’ve worked some borrowed Belkin magic and uploaded directly from the camera’s memory card the above snap of me lounging this afternoon on our starboard suite’s balcony just prior to entering the strait between Sicily and the Italian mainland.

We’ll be in Rome tomorrow. Livin’ la vida dolce.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
