how do you draw the wind.

I do wish I had more Italian study, as I would be able to muster more
courage in Civita. I tend to stay in the background; as not to embarrass,
perhaps, and for sure not to be noted as a ‘turisti’. Going out early, by
7:00AM is perfect as no one is there and the rhythms of the town are just
settling in. I see the store owners arrive, the tractor man is already
preparing the town for the next day and running errands for who ever needs
them; carrying large and heavy items up and down the bridge.  He was happy
to see I illustrated the ‘tractore’ in one of my sketches. He also works two
brooms at once. Sketching every day.
