I hope it didn't hit the whole roof - seems to be big enough for lots of normal houses. In the Constance case fire started further down (when I was there, it was supposed it happened by a candle of of those advent-rings perhaps in the staircase) and made its way through the whole house up to the roof.
Very beautiful and good photo LIKE Mimi.
A Good and Healthy and Happy New Year to you and your family.
Greetings from Holland John.
Grazie a tutti e Auguri di Buon Anno.
Questo edificio in pietra, del 1908, era utilizzato negli anni Venti del secolo scorso per le cerimonie della società funebre ebraica. Interessante l'esposizione di abiti per le cerimonie e le informazioni relative alle iscrizioni e decorazioni delle lapidi dell'adiacente vecchio cimitero ebraico, altra meta da non perdere. Ciao
Hi Axl Thanks for your kind comments on this photo. They are all appreciated
Ideal and beloved voices
of those who are dead, or of those
who are lost to us like the dead.
Sometimes they speak to us in our dreams;
sometimes in thought the mind hears them.
And with their sound for a moment return
other sounds from the first poetry of our life --
like distant music that dies off in the night.
Konstantinos P. Kavafis
Ιδανικές φωνές κι αγαπημένες
εκείνων που πέθαναν, ή εκείνων που είναι
για μας χαμένοι σαν τους πεθαμένους.
Κάποτε μες στα όνειρα μας ομιλούνε•
κάποτε μες στην σκέψι τες ακούει το μυαλό.
Και με τον ήχο των για μια στιγμή επιστρέφουν
ήχοι από την πρώτη ποίησι της ζωής μας --
σα μουσική, την νύχτα, μακρυνή, που σβύνει.
Κωνσταντίνος Π. Καβάφης
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you also,
罗布泊, my friend. Antonio
