I Miss "Important Churches'

Santa Maria in Trastavere, Rome.
I've spent a rainy Sunday missing and writing about 'important churches.' Please read on Missives From Rome.

Hello MMH,
I miss the churches and Rome too, particularly Trastevere. Our paths crossed briefly on that rainy Saturday, 12th October 2013 in Galleria Colonna. We know not of one another's existence. Been engrossed reading your blogs the last three weeks, spurred by your piece on being smitten by a Krista Larson skirt. I bought a similar one in May from Lola Frocks. Was tickled to see my husband in one of your photos taken in the Hall in the Galleria C. While sitting on one of the velvet covered benches I had noticed your gorgeous long flowered skirt......What a small world. By the way well wishes from Melbourne Australia. Cheers Helen H.

I wish I could see your husband in my photo. Can you be more specific? Do you have a blog? How did you find mine? Love to know what your Lola Frocks skirt looks like.

Hello again, WARM greetings from Melbourne. I came across your blog rather serendipitously in late October when I googled Lola Frocks to log in to Kathleen's site. Your title of "Smitten by Skirts" and a couple of lines caught my eye. Decided to read on and was amused that my KLarson skirt is rather similar to yours, with a cream background and faint burgundy stripes. I believe yours is called Umbrella skirt while mine is Petticoat skirt with rows of ruffles on hem and A line styled. Very comfy to wear.

I do not have a blog but enjoy reading ones written by bright and interesting ladies (and gentlemen too). Enjoyed your missives from Rome very much as well as other reflections. My husband and myself were in Rome and Venice in late September till mid October last year. One week on our own and two with a group, 18 of us, led by intrepid Sylvia Sagona who lectured at the University of Melbourne. Our trip "The Hidden Treasures of Rome and Venice" was wonderfully informative and enjoyable. In fact had booked for Sylvia's 'Hidden Treasures of Paris' in 2016. She is Melbourne based and her website is Travels Through Time. Danny is in your 5th photo, in the Great Hall of the Galleria Colonna, alas backview only, he was striding towards the collumns eager to find and haul me to see what treasues await in the inner rooms....my fetish of tapestries and chandeliers. He has beige pants on, a cream shirt with faint red stripes, interspersed with red and blue roses. He wears a ponytail with his camera grafted on his side....Interestingly, 4 of our travelling friends were to the left of your 6th photo featuring your friends the Camfields and Earl. I am just amazed....if I have not come acoss your piece re the skirt I would have missed out on an enjoyable blog and the unexpected fun of seeing Danny as well as our travelling friends in two of your photos taken in the G.C. Small world indeed...Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas with good health and lots of good travels in 2015. Cheers HH

I am going to take a good look at the photos in that post and find your husband and friends. Imagine our finding one another with a skirt. My email is mmh@mmhansen.com - may be a good way to communicate with one another.
