Mona Lisa

Join me in a cyber tour of the city of Paris
Where Napoleon used to rule and call home
That city filled with history and excitement
For on their streets Americans love to roam

I will take a long walk to the Arc de Triomphe
Maybe on over to the Eiffel Tower their pride
But I must take the time to see the Mona Lisa
If I really want to follow a Paris tourist guide

The lights which may illuminate opaque bodies are of 4 kinds. These are: diffused light as that of the atmosphere, within our horizon. And Direct, as that of the sun, or of a window or door or other opening. The third is Reflected light; and there is a 4th which is that which passes through [semi] transparent bodies, as linen or paper or the like, but not transparent like glass, or crystal, or other diaphanous bodies, which produce the same effect as though nothing intervened between the shaded object and the light that falls upon it; and this we will discuss fully in our discourse.

Phew, now I can start posting that fluff you all are so happy to read! There have been some fun journeys along the way.  Interesting people and sites.  Heartbreak, betrayal, confusion and outright exhaustion . Overall I feel like I'm coming up to the surface for some air and want you to tune-in for the adventures to come.   I've missed you!
