Back from vacation…

Hello, again.

The past few weeks have been filled with visiting and visitors, jaunts short and long, book talks at libraries, and much attention to beautiful sunsets.  I always experience a certain poignancy at summer’s end–the lengthening time of darkness, the hydrangeas turning from deep blue to rusty beige.  It won’t be long now until a sweater will feel comfortable against the skin.

Among the summer’s interesting reads has been Melissa Riebe’s 2010 master’s degree piece:  Sotto i Portici:  Life in Seventeenth-Century Bologna through the Games of Giuseppe Maria Mitelli, 1634-1718.  Sotto_i_Portici-Life_in_Seventeenth_Century_Bologna_Through_the_Games_of_Giuseppe_Maria_Mitelli_1634-1718[1]

I hope you enjoy it, too.
