I was just another tourist looking at Rome through the little view finder on my camera.
Amazed that all this was built by ancient folks who apparently
had knowledge far beyond what we give them credit for.
It was a folk who loved big.. the bigger the better.
A proud folk who relied on themselves and the grandness of what they created.
Art so well done that it stands for years. A tribute to the gods of Rome.
Mighty cathedrals built for a god they served.
Places where they gathered becoming just another view through the view finder.
Rome, I loved you, but I didn't love what you served.
My good friend Paul wrote you a letter, I wish more of you would have read it.
