My iTunes: Noi Don Magnifico from Rossini's "La Cenerentola"
I like timeless things. There is something about permanence and stability that attracts me, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. These stone pillars were from Bath, England, and they seem to exude timelessness, even though they are very much rooted in a specific time. When life seems crazy and things are changing and uncertain, looking at something that has stood the test of time -- like these Roman pillars -- has a calming effect on me.
