|We did have a marvelous week with a Dutch friend in Stimigliano. We sat on his patio in the sunshine, drank coffee and kibitzed. We made plans for lunch the next day, deliciously consumed before the rains came. March is that kind of month. We talked about how we missed big gatherings where we could kiss and laugh uproariously. That laughing thing is a really hurtful deprivation.|
He hit the Vatican museums on Friday, and we made a trip to the Etruscan Museum in Viterbo. I just had to get in a good museum fix before everything I see is onscreen. I am constantly looking for inspiration for my terra cotta work, and the Etruscans were top notch. Sometimes I feel the Etruscans are still among us, when I see an interestingly positioned rock, or find a broken piece of pottery. But no, the Romans creamed them.
