Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

I believe I have now caught up on last year’s European photos, so I am now sharing the ones I have taken this year. Let me begin by sharing a few statues from Milan.

Statues and Coffins at the Duomo Cathedral in Milan

“Then the singing enveloped me. It was furry and resonant, coming from everyone’s very heart. There was no sense of performance or judgment, only that the music was breath and food.” 
― Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Do not be afraid; our fate
Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.” 
― Dante Alighieri, Inferno

“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” 
― Paulo Coelho, Brida

“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.” 
― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

“There’s so much to be grateful for, words are poor things.” 
― Marilynne Robinson, Home

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” 
― Joseph Campbell
