Off to Rome

It's been a busy and stressful couple of weeks, but now I get to take a week off.

Well, not off. I'm taking my wife and children to Rome next week. So it probably won't be relaxing, wrangling everyone, trying to explain the difference between Diocletian and Domitian, and Borromini and Bernini, convincing them that going to the ruins of Ostia is interesting, making walk too much. Our vacations together typically involve a cabin in the Adirondacks.

I've never been to Rome. Maybe it will shake something loose.  Life has been too much on top of me lately.  We can talk when I get back.
