Watching the sun set on Elba.
I love this view. Thinking of a brooding Napoleon with his mother and sister in Portoferraio. They're giddy at being somewhere closer to Corsica. They're going to build an opera house. They're going to make those locals know culture!
Paris is here and now you insular peasants!
But history tells us that that didn't go very well at all. 
The Elbans were ingrates. They wanted none of the Bonapartes' social betterment. 
Napoleon go home!
Meanwhile Napoleon, with his military planning and superb math skills, planned his own escape. Back to Paris for a delirious hundred days before they caught him again and packed him off to Helena, where his days ended not long after from illness.
Elba. Misty and brooding. Alone and apart, indifferent to the mainland. 
Olivia and I are workshopping a plot treatment and screenplay....

Dinner last night at Il Circolo dell'Unione, the traditional supper club of Florentine aristocrats and anglophiles on Via Tornabuoni.
We were hosted at the table with the governor of the British Institute, a dapper gentleman in his 80s who spoke beautiful Italian and who has lived in Florence for almost half a century. His card indicated OBE.
I sat between the U.S. consul - a smart man my age; and the new director of the British Institute - a Brit older than I, and brimming with good humour and a life well lived. We'd met before but had had only brief conversations. 
I reminded the consul he had a named pew and a welcome at St James Episcopal when he wished it. He said he'd stop in again and soon. We last saw him at Christmas service. 
The point of the dinner was greater collaboration between the U.S. consulate and the British Institute, as the British consulate was closed in about 2010.
25,000 Brits live in Tuscany. American numbers about double that, mostly in Tuscany but also Umbria.
10,000-15,000 American students here each year in Florence for varying lengths of stay.
The U.S. consul received my cultural analysis haha. We're invited to his place next week for another event celebrating the anniversary of American independence. Unfortunately the English cannot attend as it falls on the same evening as the Queen's birthday (observed).
The director and I talked about speaking Spanish and compared notes on Argentina, where he lived for five years with his family. 
The governor and I bonded over humour and Latin. Thank you Letters and Peggy Chambers!
The night was pretty much a screenplay.
I actually wound up talking over prosecco prior to dinner with to a charming Italian who recognised me - his wife is on the Gonzaga in Florence faculty. A pleasant surprise and a lovely man.
Writers' room, assemble!

The pleasing lines of a Florentine stairwell, Via Cherubini.
The glowing streetlamp caught my eye first, but the elegance of its wrought iron fixture does not come across in this image.
However ... The banister of polished wood, the metal supports, the echo in the facing building, are all apparent.
Felt a bit like the interior of the Smith Tower, Seattle. 
Also vaguely cinemagraphic.

1. Fresco of saints on wall of nave.
2. Marble inlay floor of nave, Moorish in its clean design and geometry. 
3. Fresco reconstruction in progress. The humidity and chemistry of stone and lime and pigment make for a constant battle of preservation.

Detail of Capella Bardi in Santa Maria Novella. My favorite chapel, tucked away in a corner far from the entrance, hung with a string of oil lamps that recall another time (1300 C.E. ... ?) and possible other cultures (Umayyad? Persian? Dravidian?) The sun was slanting in sideways. It's moments like these that my imagination so easily sparks and I feel like I might step through time if I just hold my breath. .
