“Fra Giovanni Giocondo (c.1435-1515) was a Renaissance pioneer, accomplished as an architect, engineer, antiquary, archaeologist, classical scholar, and Franciscan friar. Today we remember him most for his reassuring letter to Countess Allagia Aldobrandeschi on Christmas Eve, 1513, a perennial favorite in these weekly quotes.” weekly quotes, Resources for Recovering Resilience, Linda Graham

added several hours later…
a photo of some rainbow lights shining on one of the printed pages…
that page was hanging from a lamp, next to a chair I was sitting in…
the light was coming through a crystal, hanging in the south facing window behind me…
a continuing fascination each day,  as I  watch where the rainbow lights light…
ahhhhhh…the joys of watching the meandering path of the rainbow lights,
honoring and appreciating the wisdom of the lighting lights…
ahhhhh….the de-lightful rainbow lights…
“to see we only have to look…I beseech you to look!”
