blue sky in Rome


This column was built more than 1,800 years
ago, between 180 and 193 AD, a gift
from the people and the Senate of Rome 

to Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
(I'm off to Rome tonight for a few days 

with my daughter Kate—we'll pass by here on our
way to toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain
to ensure a return visit.)

Thursday Challenge—"open space"


No trees, no people—nothing but
350-million-year-old
mountains off in the distance.
This open space is Faksevagen, at
80°N latitude, up in the Arctic.

ABC Wednesday—G is for "garbage?"


At my office, we occasionally
find some very festive
items in the trash.

Soup's on!


My cousin Kay, the best cook I know,
visited recently.   This is the start of just one
of the yummy things she made while
she was here:  a creamy fennel and
asparagus potage.

lights under glass


We have a "giveaway" table at work, where
I have found some pretty random
items—recently I picked up this glass
globe.  Didn't know what I was
going to do with it exactly, until I discovered 
these itty-bitty wired LED lights.

inSPIREd Sunday


The pretty purple doors of  St. Etienne du Mont
give a hint of the beauty that awaits
inside.  (Yes, this is that church from the
movie Midnight in Paris.)
