A bit tired...
What marvels, thank you! Sleep well.
Glad you to got to to visit the convent; it's one place I would love to visit again. It's rather sad it's a mere museum these days, how wonderful it must have been to have one of those paintings on your cell wall to meditate upon!
I am on the “downslope” of life and will never be able to see this in person. Your pictures here are little windows of joy for me, Hilary. Thanks.
Your post brought back good memories. I was in Florence in 1988 over spring break. I remember the cathedral with the famous bronze doors but don't think we saw the works of Fra Angelico at the monastery. (It was Holy Week when our group was there.)
I visited San Marco on Feb 26, 2020 when Italy was panicking over Covid and the government had just restricted international inbound flights. There was no one in San Marco so I took my time to gaze at Fra Angelico’s work. Having no chattering tourists around makes one feel as if the the monks were still there sitting quietly in their cells.
