I visited Rome back in 1997. While touring the Coliseum, I captured this wonderful photograph of three nuns in full habit. There is no doubt this ancient amphitheater built between 70 and 80 AD qualifies for the contest. As for the nuns, a bit harder to determine. The stern gaze of the nun on the far left transports me back to my first grade classroom and to memories of my strict but excellent teacher, Sister Bernadette.

I am an ex New Yorker who still misses the vibrancy of the city. I seek out the humor in every day life and relay it through my stories in the hope others will appreciate as well. I love to write about growing up with my fantastically unique Irish mother whose memory inspires me every day. Although she is no longer with us, her antics are an endless staple for my tales. I currently live in Connecticut with my husband, two sons and toy fox terrier Anabel. View more posts
