Renasamento

Someone once told me "if you love art and great beauty you will always be content" Once , while wandering a major museum I became lost . After turning doorways awhile I looked up and saw a 9 ft sculpture. I had loved it since high school. It is 400yrs old , I put my hands on it and imagined the artist's hands. He is Michaelangelo , unforgetable!

The theme I love art is good I'm in the right place Nice to meet people of similar emotions.

I sat at the foot of Moses with the horns and sneakily stroked statue as I sat in Rome resting from walking through the catacombs. For a moment I felt a surge of something and I thought- his hands finally touched and felt the same place once. I was humbled. It is a neat thing to be humbled in the shadow of greatness.
