Autumnal, so here's a link harvest

Clouds billowing light while the air goes chill in their gray shadow is pretty much what a perfect autumnal sky is all about. We got that most of the afternoon, and then we got gray dusk as the clouds massed and consumed the entire heavens. I'll accept that.

Twelve websites about Florence. Audio books, e-books, photos, all sorts of stuff. Just go explore.
