I visited the historic Morris Theatre in South Bend last night, seeing Celtic Woman in concert (what a joy, catch their live show while they're in America, they're amazing), and managed to capture this amazeballs photo of the corner window being kissed by the evening sunlight. I love old buildings and architecture, and often find my most treasured travel pics are taken when I pause a moment to look beyond the obvious. The designers and builders of the past left some of their most detailed and beautiful artwork at the tops of the buildings we hastily pass on the street every day. They still whisper to us from days long gone. Don't forget to look up!

Don't follow the crowd, follow your heart.

Almost finished painting “Tampa Theatre No.7: Two Lights”. Oil on canvas 48x36”. There is mystery and magic even in the faraway corners of the theater.#tampatheatre #tampa #contemporaryartist #historicplaces #oldtheaters #maineartist #tampaartist #vermontstudiocenter

🇮🇹Oggi, 2771 anni fa, avvenne la leggendaria #fondazione di #Roma. Secondo il #mito, quattro secoli prima, il suo destino fu scritto da eroi e divinità sullo stretto dei Dardanelli, a #Ilios, l'antica #Troia. Da qui fuggì Enea, valoroso principe dei Dardani, il quale dopo un lunghissimo viaggio fondò sulla costa laziale la città di #Lavinium (oggi, nel territorio di #Pomezia).
La leggenda narra di una fondazione avvenuta ad opera di Romolo, discendente dalla stirpe reale di Alba Longa, che a sua volta discendeva da Ascanio, figlio di Creusa e di #Enea, giunto nel #Lazio proprio a seguito della distruzione della sia Troia.
Quando mi trovai per la prima volta davanti le Porte Scee, ingresso monumentale di Troia, ho provato un'emozione indescrivibile. Risuonavano in me i versi dell'#Iliade che raccontano la struggente fine dell'amore tra Andromaca ed #Ettore, della furia di #Achille e della predizione della sua morte per mano di Paride.
Cos'è il mito se non emozione e suggestione?

🇬🇧According to the #legend, today of 2771 years ago, #Rome was founded.
Heroes and Gods wrote its destiny four centuries before, in Ilios, the ancient Troy, along the Dardanelles.
#Aeneas, a valiant prince of the Dardans, escaped from here and after a long journey he arrived along the coast of Lazio and founded the city of Lavinium (today in the territory of Pomezia).
The legend tells about a foundation that took place by Romulus, descended from the royal lineage of Alba Longa, who descended from Ascanio, the son of Creusa and Aeneas.
When I first found myself in front of the #Scaean #gates, the most famous monumental entrance to #Troy, I felt undescribable emotions. The verses of the Iliad resounded in me, recounting the heartbreaking end of love between Andromache and Hector, the fury of #Achilles and the prediction of his death at the hand of Parid.

What is #myth if not #emotion and #awesomeness?
