    Every time I am in Basilica San Marco, I marvel over the magnificent and varied patterns and designs in the floors. I always think that if one could sew (and alas I can’t), the patterns and colors would make beautiful quilts.

    Good to hear from you. Yes, there are so many things at our feet, to see and admire, too!

  3. It’s so good to be seeing these from my computer at home! Very beautiful. I met a woman last year in Florence when she was photographing a puddle on the sidewalk. She made me aware of the things you miss if you don’t look down. Thanks for these.
