San Miniato al Monte on Flickr.Most people were taking snapshots of the exterior of the church or of the ornate artwork and objects all around. I thought the beauty of the church was best captured in the light that crept in through the small doorway. Taken inside of San Miniato al Monte in Florence, Italy.

Sports and St. Louis

I’m not your typical guy that’s into sports. I like a good game every once-in-awhile, but I don’t own any jerseys or hats. I’ve even wondered if a city’s investment of so much time and money in a team, a stadium, etc. was really worth it. Well I watched a good baseball game last night, and it gave me joy. And, even more so the next day to see an entire city smile – we all had something to talk about, we all had something in common.
