Casa Camuzzi
Montagnola, Switzerland

. . . where Herman Hesse lived, wrote and painted in the latter part of his life.  Part of the house is now a museum in his honor.  He is buried in the churchyard of nearby St. Abbondio.

During the year that I wrote The Unfinished Angel, my husband and I lived in Montagnola and every day I walked along the path beside Casa Camuzzi. . . 

near the house in which we lived

overlooking this valley.

Ah, Svizzera!

Snowy Snow, Mainey Maine

And so it goes
the snowy snow
of this Mainey Maine 

Another world
this quiet white coated world

Swirly drifts
and startling sun bright
. . .

. . . but there is work to be done
to clear a path
from here to there
and there to here
