Italy, pre-COVID.




The times were so much simpler than today.

Why, I could just walk into a store, grab a pair of sunglasses laying on the shelf, & try them on.

I didn’t need to use a wipe, or hand sanitizer.

No gloves to wrestle with getting on.

No mask covering half of my face.


I could literally outwardly wear my smile.


(Yep, those were the days. When, in heaven’s name, will we get those days back?)

Italy, Pre-COVID


The Clown Head

The Clown Head

An eerie legend loomed over the remnants of an abandoned carnival, in the small town of Ravenswood.
