Rome. October, 1980

Fashion photo! When my late friend Dali took me to Italy for the first time (and changed my life), we would often be swept up in the cosmopolitan feel of Roma and indulge in every photo opportunity that came our way. Like this one. (In an aside, I've often thought that in spite of the many ways my Catholic school education was damaging, there are still a few things that I value from it. I appreciate grammar. I have good handwriting. And I can identify most of the saints in old paintings, some of whom were martyred in the building seen behind me. To honor my late friend Bernard by repeating his annual reminder about the correct and proper name for this very day: Happy Saint Valentine's Day.)
