loose ends

As you probably guessed from my lack of posting and comments, I'm having a lot of trouble making my way onto the internets. Yesterday, I sat on a wooden cart on the side of an alley and almost was able to get a signal. But an employee of the restaurant next door made clear that he needed to use the cart for chopping the tops off turnip-like vegetables and I gave up my spot and lost the tenuous connection.

As soon as I get a few pictures uploaded, I'll post them. Rome is crowded, beautiful, wonderful. But I'm feeling awfully pessimistic about this cycle. It's probably still too early to test, but for whatever reason I can't conjure up much hope about the ultimate result.

Sigh. Anyway, stay tuned for photos. Though none, I'm pretty sure, of food.

Gelato can be vertical (on a cone) or horizontal (in a dish). I suggest you check it out. May the beauty preoccupy your mind. The Pantheon always did it for me. (And there's great gelato right near there . . . )

Gorgeous pix. You do have a way with the camera. Crossing fingers for you.

Christine said...

those pictures of horizontal/vertical are perfect.

and do you think that being away from kyrie and everything going on is good for you? distracting?

Julia said...

The pictures rock.

Not for nothing, but I was completely, positively sure that I was sooo not pregnant when I POSed in December. May you be equally wrong.

It is so difficult to hope and impossible not to. Keeping you in my thoughts.

I'm loving seeing your pictures, not only because I enjoy your eye- but also because my Mom is in Rome right now as well! You are giving me a glimpse of what she might be seeing as well.

Funny to think you could pass my Mom on the straight and have no idea...

I will hold hope for you.

Amelie said...

Your pictures are wonderful. Maybe the beautiful and crowded city can distract you from the pessimism? I'm hoping for you.

Beck said...

Praying for you...

Pamela Jeanne said...

Ah! Thanks for the mini escape. Like those before me have said: I hope the sights and sounds distract ... and sending you the best for this cycle.

Sigh... how I love Rome. I wish I were there too.

Emily said...

Gorgeous pics, as usual.

I'm glad that you are making the most of your extended stay.

Hoping the best for this cycle!
