Tomorrow is the feast of St. Catherine of Siena, famous Dominican preacher and the first woman writer of the Renaissance. In celebration, Yves Beriault and I took the train from Rome up to Siena in the heart of Tuscany.
Here is the Duomo, the cathedral church in Siena. It is full of tourists, but doesn't fail to impress nonetheless. The cupola in the top of the dome reminded me of Window Rock (see the entry for Easter). It is almost as transcendent. Not bad for something made by humans.
