Peace Be With You


Surprisingly, Sheena spent far more time in cathedrals and basilicas this week, and not nearly in enough shoe stores. A week spent in awe. Of the painting, sculpture, soaring architecture, human innovation at its best, combining the very best of science and art to produce pure unadulterated beauty. A renewed respect and gratitude to those in positions of power so many centuries ago who had enough foresight and ego and belief in the lasting talent of mankind to fund the best and the brightest so that we may stand slack jawed and humbled today.

I think it was mostly ego. Those Renaissance Popes were usually heads of merchant families like the Borgias and the Della Roveres.

Still, they commissioned wonderful works.
