Castel Sant'Angelo II, Rome

Castel Sant'Angelo II, Rome, originally uploaded by - di.

I used to sit on the banks with a raft and watch the water roll lazily by. One day I pushed my raft into the shallows of the water and found the water moved swifter than I thought. My raft was actually a boat. Then, after some time, I rowed my little boat into deeper water. There were great storms, mighty winds, tremendous waves, and sometimes I felt so alone. But I have noticed my little rowboat is now a mighty ship manned by my friends and loved ones; and beautiful calm seas, warm sunny days, and nights filled with comfortable dreams always double after a storm. Now, I could never go back and sit on the bank. In fact, I search for deeper water. Such is life when lived.

Merci, Tara. I have fallen back into quotes as life became a little unmanageable.

It's Rome, Van. She just kind of litters your path with beautiful things. The light was stunning and I was pleased to find this new angle on an old favourite.

Not bad, eh Julie. Next time I'll show you where I found it. I had coffee at our old haunt there - it was as good as ever.
