Stories Are Words With A Soul
As I trudged, wind picked up, (-13 wind chill), and snowflakes fell from the sky. Flakes accumulated on my lashes and my mind started to wander on words from an excellent book I recently finished by Anthony Doerr. He talks about living in Rome and wanting to be in the Pantheon with the first snowflakes falling through an open hole in the domed roof (the oculus). When I toured the Pantheon years ago I saw blue sky through the oculus and watched sunlight illuminate the floor around me and can only imagine how gorgeous and magical snowflakes would be!!!
I highly recommend Doerr's wonderfully written book: "Four Seasons In Rome". It will warm you and take you somewhere lovely. It is a story with a SOUL.
