ERE'S THE THING. I'll be visiting Italy for a couple weeks at the end of the month and into December. Rome first, to take a closer look at Domitian's new house on the Palatine, to check out a couple of Flavian portraits in the Vatican Museum, and (if I still have the energy) to take a little side-trip out to Domitian's Alban Villa (now a Papal retreat). Then the long train ride to my beloved Venice, where I plan to put my feet up, eat lots of fish, and bask in the serenity.
It was always my intention to take a little break from writing blog articles at that time anyway. But right now I'm just so busy wrapping things up at home and at the art studio that I simply can't do justice to the rhinoceros article, which is really going to be interesting, I think. So please come back on the 16th of December and we can continue on from there.
