Night…a poem

it’s
humid
damp
and
wet
outside
it
has
been
raining
off
and
on
for
days
but
the
night
doesn’t
care
it
wants
white
satin
dresses
and
smoky
rooms
filled
with
haunting
music
pulled
from
saxophones
that
have
seen
hard
times
and
are
trying
to
find
their
way
home

 
the
darkness
encircles
me
whispering
of
things
to
come
it
holds
me
ever
so
lightly
and
smiles
knowing
that
I
can’t
resist
its
invitation
to
dance

Graffiti at the Colosseum…Rome, Italy

I think it’s funny the way people like to leave their names everywhere.  Several people wanted us to know they were at the Colosseum in 1915 and 1918.

Cat at glass blowing factory in Venice, Italy

The cat was sleeping on top of a stack of boxes that were ready for shipment to Russia.  Between the cat and several drool worthy, beautifully dressed men (their jackets tailored to fit perfectly) with incredible haircuts, I didn’t see them do anything at all with the glass. I think someone made a horse.  Life’s like that sometimes.  You just get lucky.

Grate…Paris, France

There are so may beautiful grates on the buildings in Paris.  Fabulous iron work in Art Deco and other periods.  It’s wonderful.
