George’s Postcard Note: The lanterns hanging in this loggia are so fantastic – restored to perfection and tethered with small wires to the side walls like spiderwebs. Their scale is hard to imagine, much less to draw. You can get some idea by comparing them with the glass-paned doors in the background. I like the red going up to “no-where” steps…. Maybe to a room from the past, maybe to something else. The entire tableau fascinated me. Later, when I found the stamps, I thought of Hoagy Carmichael’s “living in the room at the top of the stairs!”
