    Rather preachy, but a dream that could happen. And think about the good it would do for outdoors art, as well as quality of life.

    That is a worthy dream.

    from “After the Gold Rush” by Patti Smith

    Well, I dreamed I saw the silver

    Space ships flying

    In the yellow haze of the sun,

    There were children crying

    And colors flying

    All around the chosen ones

    All in a dream, all in a dream

    The loading had begun.

    They were flying Mother Nature’s

    Silver seed to a new home in the sun.

    [Smith is actually one of the favorite modern singer/songwriters of Pope Francis. She was invited to perform at two Vatican Christmas concerts. Parts are viewable on YouTube.]

    I like Gabby’s thoughts here. Wouldn’t it be lovely. (“ religion too.”) At least not the condemning kind that we see today.

    Rome as a garden? The Vatican as a public park? Does Gabby want the buildings removed?

    Blessings and perfect outcome for his Holiness in his upcoming surgery.
