So here we are with the remnants of Roman Emperors, Christians establishing themselves as a superpower, and memories of Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve.
Over the years, people sometimes grew tired of my romanticizing Roman time and told me they may have produced beautiful art and architecture, but they also had slavery, injustice and plagues.
Anno Domini 2020 had all three. As will 2021.

We can all take inspiration from Janus and look back and ahead. While computers take up a disproportionate amount of our modern lives, there are still talented artisans producing beautiful work. My 'resolution' is to find people keeping art alive and share their work with you.
Also, many of you have asked about sharing my emails with friends. Please feel free and you have my gratitude. Writing is only worth the feelings it brings to readers.
Old beauty. New connections.
Happy New Year!
