However, on the colorful envelope posted a few weeks later, the stamps were canceled with a single postmark, no bonus one this time. I wonder if the clerk respected the image on this envelope? Just another mail mystery, I guess.
Key to sating your hunger pangs at the central market in Rome is this fun guide to the food on offer. Love the fact that one part is an A-Z story and another is a found poem.
M is for Memory is the title of this photograph that Eva sent to congratulate me on finishing the A-Z challenge. Not sure I saw the connection to memory from the photo at first. Of course after some contemplation I can see seeds 'remembering' how to grow into full plants. Perhaps the image is intended to evoke a memory. Quite likely one of a half-forgotten summer picnic. Refreshing watermelon eaten on a hot afternoon. Scrambling to evacuate after the ants also realize how delicious the fruit is. Tired after spending hours in the sun. Unhappy to be returning to reality. Vexed at having to unpack the car in the heat, which now seems sweltering instead of relaxing.
What things in the letter's contents have I not mentioned so far? X is a letter Italian's don't have to worry about starting sentences with, Eva points out. Yet another postcard from Rome showing the 17th century work titled Prospettiva you can see in the Galleria Spada.
Zebra-striped washi tape puts the final seal on Eva's envelope, as well as this post.
