Today, and one year ago today...

I've tried hard, over the course of the last week and more, to write this post. Tried and failed. It's been through a number of versions and none of them are any good at all.

Today, momesto and sammy3ox are back in Belmond, Iowa, where scarlatti was born, was baptised, and was buried.

She died a year ago today.

You can find my posts of a year ago by clicking on "yesterday", "today" and "tomorrow".

In lieu of any new content by me, you could click here, or here, or here, or any one of a number of other places at around the same time. Or, most especially, here. Be sure to read the comments too.

    The second of scarlatti's two benches is now in place, and Sam has posted some photos here. Well done everybody, and thank you.

    Or, more accurately, Susan's benches. Well done everybody, and thank you.

    I've been writing a post, and I can't get the wording right. Instead, go and read what I quoted from Sam in my Thanksgiving day post.
