    I wonder if the sonnet is one quoted by a friend of Dante’s to Dante in his Divine Comedy?! Must look it up. Meanwhile, ALW on the pre-Raphaelites will be saved up and relished soon! Thanks for sharing and many blessings to you in the New Year, Sunny!

  6. We just watched the Andrew Lloyd-Webber program. I didn’t know he’s such an avid collector of Pre-Raphaelite art. As wealthy as he became from his music, why not?

    1. He is quite an interesting character. I cannot even imagine being surrounded by Pre-Raphaelite paintings in my own home! 🙂
