The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

Tuesday, December 13

One of the guys was gifted with a "room with a view"... and pretty much pondered from within the rest of the weekend. The rest of us, less gifted with window-vistas, found other pondering spots to call our own, mine happened to be in the (very Chestertonian) old library, complete with fireplace and cheery crackling wood fire, and enough "old book smell" to satisfy any bookworm at heart. Perhaps it was not as grand as seeing Creation out the window, but in its own way I think it was just as fruitful for meditation (when you could keep from the temptation to gently fall asleep in contentment that is).
