Hi, I’m Michael Anderson. Welcome to Sicily!
My connection to Sicily begins with a ship called the S.S. Patria, which left the port of Palermo in October 1914. As a young child, I used to listen to the stories of my great uncle who told me about crossing the ocean on that ship as a boy. Those stories led me to Sicily for the first time in 2012, and I am excited to share this beautiful land with you through this program.
Our world is in a state of rapid change, flux, and uncertainty. It is important that we find a still point in this turbulent world, that we come to know ourselves and tell our story as only we can tell it. It is important that we come to see our individual lives as an integral piece of a much larger human tapestry. To do so is to become more fully human, more fully our true selves.
