Ten Years After

This image popped up on Facebook this morning. Share your old memories they say. This was 2010 class in Rome. I was to go one last time in 2011, then called it quits. Hard to believe it has been ten years already. For maybe three or four years after that last class I would have a yearning to be in Rome again this time of year. The gradually the feelings faded. It was a great period in my life, living in Rome, working with amazing students. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever return, if just to walk the street in the early morning when most Romans are still sleeping. I am feeling quite nostalgic right now. Funny what feelings an old photograph can stir up.
