...a whirlwind trip to the 'old country' to welcome little Massimo into this world. 'Roots are important'...a line spoken by the Saint in the recent Italian movie, The Great Beauty. Watch it and we'll talk. In the meantime, I'll be beating the cobblestones and shooting from the hip...on the fly

May I have this dance?
To get this shot, I did my little dance around this wonderful sculpture in the plaza outside the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. I made reference to it on my Instagram page and on my photo driven Facebook page where I make more regular posts. Please feel free to go there and 'like me' a lot. I am in the process of updating my website and will keep you posted about that...

In the meantime, enjoy March Madness...Husker Heaven...Spring Fever...Daylight Savings...on and on...

Let's Play Ball! 
It's in the air!
Can you feel it?  :^)
