I love this photo. I don't think I have ever seen Dad look so happy. We had lunch at a beautiful cafe overlooking the Tuscan hills in San Gimignano. Just to prove it, the second photo gives you an idea of the view. Just as I went to take the photo, a couple stopped and started kissing in the foreground. When in Rome, or Tuscany, or, well... you get the idea.

Fills my heart with gladness. Just exquisite, even the idea of how this would have felt for the Tall Man... even the idea of it fills me to the brim.

In questa notte d’autunno

In questa notte d’autunno
sono pieno delle tue parole
parole eterne come il tempo
come la materia
parole pesanti come la mano
scintillanti come le stelle.
Dalla tua testa dalla tua carne
dal tuo cuore
mi sono giunte le tue parole
le tue parole cariche di te
le tue parole, madre
le tue parole, amore
le tue parole, amica
Erano tristi, amare
erano allegre, piene di speranza
erano coraggiose, eroiche
le tue parole
erano uomini.

-Nazim Hikmet
