“I don’t need very much now,” said the boy. “Just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired.”
“Well,” said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could, “an old stump is a good place for sitting, sitting and resting. Come boy. Sit down. Sit down and rest.” And the boy did. And the tree was happy.


Whoa. #NoseBuddies

A additional title for this sculpture I fully support, “Man Holding Lover’s Gelato.” He just can’t look or he’ll eat it all up! #NaplesArcheologicalMuseum

Gorgeous sunset from the train. I attempted to catch the power lines in the frame but after am already inordinate amount of time and snapshots trying to catch it, here is the best #nofilter color/light shot. #BesideTheTuscanSun

Loved this on the walk to draw from Pierro Della Francesca frescos in Arezzo. #tuscany

On my walk “home” after ghost stories and world history discussions. A special evening at the British Academy for dinner, ta boot! #OliveJuice #Edwina #TeacherAdil #StudioVisit #Buddies #origins

Night Painting. We closed down The Vatican square! I didn’t feel finished with this painting but the “Polizia” decided I was. #TheVatican #StPeters #Roma #RomeArt #RomeArtProgram #Italy #Italia #HashtagParty

I spent a good amount of time as a kid finding figures, animals, and narrative scenes in late 70’s style linoleum, walls with textured white paint, and the wood grain of closet doors. I was just awakening here to a beautiful cedar (I think) wardrobe and I see a figure in a body of water, arms outstretched with one catching a cloud. All this having just heard a hilarious start to This American Life’s episode 528: A Radio Drama in which Ira Glass and an opera singer/audiobook narrator retell a story of the opera singer/audiobook narrator’s harrowing recorded tale of accidentally locking herself in a hotel closet through a Philip glass commissioned (just for the show) contemporary opera called, Help. #TAL #Ira Glass #Phillip Glass #Opera

Local girl sat mesmerized watching one of RAP’s student’s painting at the back of the Pantheon. #Rome #ItalianLife
