A Moveable Feast

Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Last Supper, inside the refectory of Milan’s Santa Maria delle Grazie

Even though seeing this capolavoro (masterpiece) has long been on my wish list, I didn’t expect to be so moved by it when I finally saw it in person. I. Was. Wrong.

The Last Supper pulled me in, enveloped me, took up residence in my heart. For the remainder of the day, I carried these emotions with me, and could not stop thinking about the painting’s significance, beauty and power.

It felt a tiny bit like falling in love…(please come back tomorrow for the extended post!)  

I invite you to sign my guestbook, and to join me on Facebook. This post first appeared on Prayers and Piazzas.

  1. I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award!! Just in case you don’t want to read the post, here is what I said about you on my blog: “Okay, this blog has got it all! If you are at all interested in history, travel, everyday observational posts: go follow this chick. She’s got GREAT content and her photography is kinda sorta AMAZING. Whenever I get the chance, I love to read of her most recent adventures. It’s the kind of blog I’d want my blog to evolve into when I’m older and get out into the world (a whole lot of travel, adventure, and insight). Keep up the great work! Thanks for bringing the sunshine 🙂 ”
