I probably need a day off from walking. I have walked constantly since I left Winnipeg. I offer up my weariness some days for those of you who cannot walk or breathe. Maybe Rome gets its name from roam. This is a city built for walking. I have not seen as much as I would like to and the Trivi Fountain was closed for renovations so no coin toss for a return trip.
I was deeply moved today walking into St. Peter’s Basilica. It is a holy place. I was surprised by the Square–it looks so much bigger on TV. The Sistine Chapel was amazing. The Vatican Museum too large to appreciate. I cannot write long at the moment as I am on the go but I hope to write again tomorrow night.
All is well. God is good. My heart breaks at the death of Robin Williams, a man who brought so much joy and laughter to others but could not hang on to it for himself. May perpetual light shine upon him. For those struggling with depression and addiction, seek help. My prayers rise in this eternal city for you all.
