With the Covid-19 madness still showing no sign of abating, it was time to dig back into my archives and look for some photographs from our last trip abroad. This shot was taken in January of 2020 and shows the Roman Forum in the early afternoon. The majesty of these ruins does tend to reduceContinue reading “The Eternal City in January”
My heart is breaking right now, for the suffering of my belovèd Italy, due to the Covid-19 outbreak . This photograph was taken on our last trip to Rome, in January of this year. I hope fervently to return there soon.
