Ciao, tutti!

It is good to know that I have been conspicuous by my absence - or so I have heard from various friends in the blogosphere.

How long has it been since I fielded a new post? A quick glance at my Archive tells me that it was way back in December 2012. (For the record: YIKES!)

Why's that? First, I was traveling. Then, I was preparing for more travel - including a speaking tour in March (with various presentations in Detroit, Toronto, London, Ont. and Chicago).

So, my manic word-crafting and image-polishing has been focused on a brand new talk on (what else?!)

Maybe you can hear me in person ... live? Click on the above link for places and dates.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the turbulent relationship between Michelangelo Buonarroti and the Medici rulers of Florence. And in a few days, I will be beginning a speaking tour on this very topic. This will take me to Detroit (9 March), Toronto (12 March), London, Ont. (13 March) and Chicago (21 March). Then later, who knows where else?! If you live in those parts of the world, it would be great to meet you! See below for the relevant times and places.
