TOURING POMPEII

Rising above the ashes, the walls of a doomed city 
again filled with living creatures... as tourists roam this stage. 

My sister, Diana and her late husband, Bill
witnessed a performance of life beside the menace. 

Fearsomely beautiful, it fumes... and waits. 
Messages from the past - unheeded - in the shadow of Vesuvius.
