I just needed to revel in the memory
of a glorious spring day in Rome!
A wonderful day to all of you,
wherever you are,
Forever etched in my heart.
where the roots of my youth's happiness
found fertile soil to grow and carry me into adulthood.
Rome, where at the Teutonic Cemetery of the Vatican, next to St. Peter's Basilica, rests the woman who gave me so much love.
I miss her.
Hello Merisi ..not been over here for a while . look what I have missed :-( Fabulous photos and Italy .. No spring day here .. :-( cold and wet.. so I am happy I came over here, all very cheery.ReplyDelete
I miss a living city. In winter here in Cleveland few dare to venture out of doors. I want to sit outside with my coffee and paper and wave to my neighbors again. Beautiful images as always.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it! I like to see your sight on my adopted city.ReplyDelete
Love the shades of blue against the terracotta colours. It's still cold (-14 Celsius) in Warsaw.ReplyDelete
Roma forever. Also it is the anniversary of the death of John Keats in Rome. Sniff...ReplyDelete
I loved to see Vienna through another's eyes. Your photos are wonderful. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...MaryReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, Merisi. I particularly like the one with Vespa and roses.ReplyDelete
I love to play chess like that.ReplyDelete
Fabulous walk in Roma... It's not an angel : it is Bacchus ! lolReplyDelete
Have a nice evening,
Thank you all so very much!ReplyDelete
you are absolutely right, no way around it,
Bacchs it is! :-)
I cover my head in shame.
Rome - how I miss my favourite city in the world. Thanks for the memories.ReplyDelete
Amazing how the light is a different light in another Country. You could so easily do for Rome what you have done for Vienna. You find the most interesting compositions.ReplyDelete
Oh, I so needed to this light and warmth. Gorgeous shots!ReplyDelete
I miss la Cittå Eterna, every day since I left.
yes, that is so true, the light, the light!
It is still so that I know Rome better than Vienna,
and much more emotional connection. I am telling myself that Vienna is a wonderful place to live, but it is a different kind of emotion.
I remember watching a documentary about Sophia Loren on American (Public?) TV. I almost jolted out of my seat when they showed scenes of Pozzuoli, the area Sophia was born. It was the light that had struck me, I was sitting there, incredulous. Big case of homesickness ensued!
We all long for sun and light, after a long hard winter, don't we?
colorful, amazing, warm Rome on your picutures!ReplyDelete
OH I thought you were off to Rome last week-end or other...ReplyDelete
So why not Paris?
Thank you, Ola! :-)ReplyDelete
I was down in Veneto, north of Veneto,
doing research. Four days full of great coffee, though! ;-)
I love the bucket of roses highlighted against the bright blue Vespa. Very bright and cheerful!ReplyDelete
How beautiful! Bello, bello!ReplyDelete
Oh ... I miss it. Thank you for this today.ReplyDelete
