ECHOES OF POMPEII
Indulge me. It's raining out, a heavy rain all across the Pacific Northwest, the kind of downpour that looks like it may never stop. Something moody is in order. Echoes... Pink Floyd at Pompeii, 1971. A Roman wilderness of pain. Make some tea and have a listen...
By the way, this little fresco of the Sacrifice of Iphigenia at Aulis is from the House of the Vettii in Pompeii.
