Eight Things I Miss During Covid-19

I miss the simplest things during lockdown.

1. Cappuccino made by someone other than myself.

2. Seeing beauty every day.

3. Going out for pizza

4. Poking around wonderful Roman stores.

5. People watching.

6. Walking everywhere.

7. The Pantheon

8. The warmth of my favorite city.

I hope you are all well. We will be back to walking, shopping, celebrating with each other, and enjoying a cappuccino in a bar!

Take care of yourselves.

Warm tones of Rome

One of the things you notice first about the eternal city is that it glows. There is a wonderful light in this city, and the yellow and orange tones of the buildings soak it in. The city is bathed in sunlight even on a dreary day or at night! The warm tones also convey the history of this incredible city. To me the warn feeling of the buildings is welcoming and comfortable, we are old but we are loved. Architecture here is perfectly imperfect!

Beautiful little area near the Trevi fountain
The Capital Buildings
Day view of the Colosseum
The night view it is hauntingly beautiful.
What inspiring colors!!!
I love this building it is typical of Rome, beautiful windows and shutters. The second floor has a lovely arch detail…ahh this city is amazing!
The greenery is magnificent but so it the round accent on the top floor.

The colors of the sun set the tone of this city, warmth is everywhere. Come experience it for yourself!

Angeli di roma

I have always been drawn to Angels, I find comfort in them. According to the dictionary Angels are “spiritual beings believed to act as an attendant, agent, or messenger of god, represented in human form with wings and a long robe.” Rome is full of Angels. Here are some of my favorites.

Angels bring healing, protection, light of God, and communicate with heaven to those of us in need on earth.
This Archangel Michael painting can be seen at the church Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini.
This is a beautiful representation of an Angel.
Bridge of Angels
One of my favorite places in Rome!
There are plenty of Angels at the Vatican, this is a wonderful place to see art.
Angel of grief

Angels are everywhere you just have to look for them! This city is the perfect place to search for Angels.
