I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.
What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...
I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose
Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...
food for thought...
Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)
We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)
There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)
The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)
Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

1. One of 13 egyptian obelisks in Rome (5 left in Egypt!)
this is the oldest and tallest - 31m and a metre has been
2,3 and 4. Pics of the side entrance to this - the oldest, and
the cathedral church of Rome
5. Our first view of what is the extravaganza of decoration in
Roman churches - my other shots looked v. dark and I sadly
cleared them!!! But it was quite mind blowing inside - and
quite overwhelmed us - this was late afternoon of a day
that had started at 4am!
6. A view of the top of a 2 storyed portico surmounted by an
attic with Christ the Apostles and Saints
Info in all this series from 'Blue Guide Rome' which was only available 2nd hand (from Amazon that is)

This is where we started the 'sightseeing'
according to my 'Blue Guide' the potmarks are where the blocks were originally fastened with iron clamps and these were torn out in the middle ages!
warmth, blue skies, wisteria
election time and how many bills can you stick on one board - this was small time!!
scooters are the way to go
well most of the time!
