I design houses for a living, and remodels are a part of that. When we do remodels and additions we have to measure and photograph the existing homes. In many of the empty ones, I find remnants of the lives lived in those houses.
Just thought maybe you wanted know what I’m reading. I don’t get a lot of reading time, as I am always busy, busy. However, this is on my nightstand; Brunelleschi’s Dome.
If you go to Florence, don’t miss the Uffizi Gallery. Art comes alive in this place. There was one painting that found a special place in my heart. It had an inner glow that I have never seen reproduced in a photograph.
I guess the thing that struck me, aside from her obvious beauty, is the difference between the photograph and the real thing. It is just so striking. But, it’s like that with most art, isn’t it?
Have a great day!
