I somehow hadn’t gotten around to explaining the current header. It’s from one of my favorite places in the universe, namely the city of Rodos. The picture is of a ceramic tile on a small square in the old town. It shows the Madonna of Filerimos, an image apparently from the time Rodos was under Italian government. I honestly don’t know why it looks the way it does with its seeming neo-primitive style, it dates from the 1930s.
The Italian period left its mark on much of the city of Rodos (though parts of it also remind me of the area I grew up in on the Gulf Coast of Florida).
