  2. Thank you,
    Happy Spring to you too! :-)


    The pictures lead to some "Roman" pieces of music, the last one to a scene, playing in Rome, in and around the tunnel connecting Via Nazionale and Via del Tritone, from the classic black and white Vittorio de Sica movie "Ladri di Biciclette" ("The Bicycle Thieves").

    Enjoy! :-)

  4. Wonderful photos and music, Merisi.

    As I have been working on my writing, I will have to catch up your previous posts on my day off writing.

  7. You know, I think I will always miss Rome, every time I think about it, for as long as I love. Something about the quality of the air and light, the colors, the temperament, the layers of history...It is just a place in which I feel "right".

  9. Beautiful pics once again! My favorite is the angel drinking from the decanter. Cute. Also, I love the color of that bike.

  10. Oh, I love these images of Roma. How gorgeous--that cherub and wine sign is delightful. Well, matter of fact, it all is!
