for a lifetime of seduction, of shy morning’s soft light, waves whispering between pebbles rolling gently on the shore.
for the ancient houses unheated, their walls seeped in history, wood fire’s smoke and crackle on cool nights.
for the Rose’s bloom throughout winter, the bougainvillea dashing colour along the walls, the first blossoms of Spring intrepidly opening well before it’s season.
for the mountain peak’s meandering paths dotted with crocus and sweet blue rosemary,
for the possibility of walking the streets, the beaches, the paths crowd-less in the season tourists avoid.
for the quirkiness behind every corner, the shabby places hidden from the foreigners but which I recognize as the real you.
Winter in Positano, will you be my Valentine?

Goosebumps and chills. What a beautiful, wonderful, loving post.
Absolutely beautiful words and photos! I love this time of year on the Amalfi Coast - the color of the evening sky, the first hints of the bright spring hues to come, the incredible blues of the sea - it's a magnificent and peaceful time of year. Thank you for sharing your Valentine!
