This is hard on a couple of levels.
First, all that stone—
but mainly because this is the "children's
section" of the graveyard at
San Miniato al Monte, in Florence. Little
Luigi was only 3 when he died almost
60 years ago. His gravestone says:
"Don't cry for him. Eyes extinguished on
earth sparkle in heaven with light
and so much happiness."

These pretty poppies were in bloom
this past May (on Memorial Day) . . .
. . . growing wild here near the Theater
of Marcellus (casting its rounded
shadow on the left).

Went up to Piermont, NY, last Saturday
for a wedding and took a walk
around town on Sunday morning.
We saw lots of bikers—and
this mural near the local bike shop.

The church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva
opened its doors very early one
morning last month for part of a
series of special musical performances
(check it out if you understand Italian)—this
one started at 5:30 a.m.!

Hanging out in the Piazza di Grillo,
in Rome, just steps from Trajan's
Market and the Forum of Augustus. Always
grateful for a sunny Roman day
(and a nice clean car!).
