Went there this past January...wept all the way up the Via Condotti up to the Spanish Steps--saw Keats's window and lost it...

I took tea at Cafe Greco--where he had tea with Severn...surreal...and the people there...passionate, hopsitable, embracing, warm and friendly...a truly incredible place... :wink:

Words cannot describe it. Rome has to be seen, smelt and touched to make sure it really exists.

Yes, I agree. Let's all go and completely overtake the Keats/Shelley house...can you see us all there? We'd all look exactly like this:

You watch. One day we'll all meet for our much imagined Keats convention...when we do--I think I shall weep like a girl... :oops: :lol:

Really, though, to finally get to meet you guys would be phenomenal--I feel I know you all so well...

Am I the only one feeling the love right now?? :lol: :lol:

Dude. I thought you wrote "Let's all *feel* one another right now". Hmm. . .must be the Avenue Q soundtrack I was just listening to that makes my mind go a little south of the gutter. ;) But never fear, I've got English Choir music on now :)

When oh when will my work day be done and the weekend begin??!! :roll:

I would.

*kidding*

I really like that song you referenced, though, Saturn--a great 60's tune---not that I was born when it came out or anything guys! :?

It's called "Love One Another"...a 60's classic... :wink:

Is there nothing more glorious than when two of your completely unrelated interests/obsessions meet?

I love my Keats. I love my Twins baseball. Apparently, the writer of this fabulous and fun Twins blog that I just discovered a few weeks ago (and have been browsing through archives today) does as well. Sure, the allusions probably won't make any sense to you if you're not into baseball, but I had to post it anyway, because it was such a random discovery! :lol:

Note that a few of the comments are quite cleverly Keats-oriented as well. :wink:

Love it, Credo! And Keats must have *some* American genes in him somewhere as he looks killer in a baseball cap! :wink: :lol:

The poem was great, too. Back in college, a friend and I once turned one of Keats's poems into a parody--his poems are great for that. We changed the words of On First Looking into Chapman's Homer to a satire about Whitman college. Not as good as a parody about the Twins, though, I'm sure! :)

Indeed he does! I wonder if he finds inspiration from Twins "utility fielder" Nick Punto, who also happens to be on the short side (by quite a bit) compared to the rest of his teammates, yet runs bases like the wind. :wink:
