I live in the city of Lucca ( Italy ) and this is how I see it.
As I walk around the city I see its reflections in the puddles. As I enter the countless churches I'm awe of the "Light of God". As I continue to stroll around the city , I revel in the ambiance and the subtle nuances of light and shade.
The city comes alive with Christmas lights, but I would love to have seen it as it was in bygone days.
