And now, for the REVEAL:
Last week’s image:
Was The Duomo in the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) in Pisa, Italy.
The image was shot in the summer of 2011, on our second visit to Pisa. This particular day, my eye was drawn to a small back corner of the cathedral dedicated to the honor (and containing the tomb) of the Patron Saint of the town of Pisa, Saint Ranieri. My mouth dropped in wonderment as I read about the Saint to whose remains I was drawn, whose name is the ancestor of my own married name- Reyneri- who was also the Patron Saint of Travelers. “Could this really be my calling, I wondered?” Perhaps through my dreams, visions, and revelations- and in a very literal sense- the images of our travel- are meant to inspire others to dream God-sized dreams, to get out and explore this great big beautifully amazing world in which we live? I once heard the still small voice within whisper, “others will live vicariously through your stories.”
My hope is that through living vicariously, you will be inspired to get out and live authentically, largely, and vivaciously! And, you, in turn, inspire others to do the same!
Be blessed- Jen
