The other day I was in the dentist's office for a 3 hour appointment. It seems that one of my root canals (my teeth hurt just typing those two words) - well, there was a problem with the root canal and one of my teeth needed to be extracted because the problem had extended into the bone. Lovely, right? Anyway, between the extraction and bone graft my dentist asked me if I wanted to watch a movie or wear the very expensive Bose headphones and listen to Andrea Bocelli.
Now, I love listening to all Italian opera, as well as to Andrea Bocelli, I mean, who doesn't? But I've worn those headphones before and even those the audio is fabulous, every sound the dentist's tools make seem to be exaggerated 10x with the headphones - so I opted out of wearing them for this appointment.
Instead, I decided to visualize my way through Italy, remembering the cities, towns and villages we visited this past fall. And you know what, it really worked! It was so interesting because one memory would lead me to the next, and the next, and so on, until my appointment was just about done.
Since I really enjoyed my visualized trip back through Italy, I thought I'd share some of the images with you.
Lake Como, the town of Bellagio...and Venice....
