Nonnina

A while back, I posted an old photo of my grandfather, the same one that is in the banner for this blog.  It’s very true that my grandfather has been a major influence on this project, even in his absence.

But I haven’t spoken much about my grandmother, much to my shame.  It was my grandmother who took care of my sister and me while my mother worked full-time.  It was my grandmother who sang Italian lullabies, who threatened me with the wooden spoon when I misbehaved, who cooked delicious meals every day, who had a beautiful garden full of incredible fruits and vegetables.

So I think you should see a nice picture of my grandmother, now.  Grazie, Nonnina, per tutto.

About lapiccolacoccinella

I consistently have trouble with self-definition, but I'll give it my best shot here.... I am a twentysomething Italian-American woman from New England who loves clowning and cats and goth subculture and animanga and art and writing and books. I am an aspiring author and artist who currently blogs for Amazing Stories Magazine. I love getting feedback and advice from readers in order to allow my work to grow.
