Visiting the Sistine Chapel

I’ve been to Milan, but not Rome.  Rome is a place I’d like to explore, and since time and money (and a young daughter) do not allow it right now, I thought we could have a little fun on this beautiful Saturday morning.

Imagine: we’re sitting in a quaint cafe not far from Vatican City, sipping cappuccinos.  Soon, we’ll trek onto Vatican grounds and enter the Sistine Chapel.

Are you ready?  Take my arm.  Maybe we’ll follow this nun.  What do you think?

How glorious is this?  Such a gorgeous space.  Michelangelo did wonders with it.  Zoom in, scroll through…

Bask.

Soak.

Listen.

I’m going to sit here for a while.  Maybe I’ll see you for dinner this evening–where was that little restaurant we saw last night?  Do you remember which corner it was on?

Ciao, darling!

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
