Up came the Roman sun this morning at 7:10 and down it will go at 18:46. The days shorten in more than one way. The Ave Maria should still ring at 17:00. The Feast of St. Bruno graces the traditional calendar.

Donec humános animávit auræ

A few shots from the last couple of days, since today I won’t collect many.
A lovely paper cone of freshly grated pecorino romano.
I’m about to use some for my lunch (all’amatriciana).
Oh… and the spaghetti with clams last night.

Remember the monks at Le Barroux and their good wine from the centuries dormant papal vineyards, now revived. Thanksgiving isn’t all that far away. How about some of their wine for your meal?
Here’s a ringing of the Angelus at Ss. Trinità dei Pelegrini and also the sanctuary bell for the beginning of Mass.
Watch for more, later. I hope…
