a head of her time


In the Capitoline Museum, in Rome:
I don't know who sculpted this
bust of a Roman lady from many, many
years ago—but I'm blown away
by the folds and patterns in that marble!


She's joined by a few dozen
of
 her compatriots.

  2. Great pun. Considering that the times zones of England and Italy are an hour apart I was thinking about her (above) relationship with my friend’s herb garden near those English white cliffs along the English channel. Timewise, she (above) is (being in Rome) ahead Dover thyme.
