what’s your greatest achievement in childhood?  (retrospectively, obviously.)

these are “tre cime di lavaredo” (italian for “the three peaks of lavaredo”), also called the “drei zinnen” (german, literally “three merlons”) or “tré thìme” in the local “cadorino” dialect.  they sit in the sexten dolomites of northeastern italy.

wikipedia editors refer to them as one of the best-known mountain groups in the alps.  back home after a family trip, i jotted down a vaguely resembling outline of three peaks on a rocky hill.  et voilà’.  success.  after that, it was decided i was talented for the arts.
