Page 4 of 10: Proceno and Hilltown Heaven

I don't know why I picked this little town for us--pure intuition based on a strange little thing. I had seen a photograph of an apartment in Castello di Proceno several years before, and for some reason I was very drawn to it. It was of a kitchen table set into loggia, and I remember thinking, I can see us sitting RIGHT THERE. Somehow I dredged up the memory and the old catalogue and although they were no longer with that agency I found the place--they just opened their website so a Google search turned it up--and many months later, we walked into the very apartment and sat at the table. It was as if we had walked into a photograph that was waiting for us to complete it. I think there's an incident in Diderot where he so admires a painting he fantasizes about climbing into it. It was like achieving that. And the funny thing was that Proceno kept handing me such gratifications.
