Charles Baudelaire,  (1821 – 1867) was a French poet who also produced notable work as an essayist, art critic, and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe. His most famous work, Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century. 

Santa Maria in Trastevere, perhaps the first church in the world where Mass was publicly celebrated.

The Saturday morning market was almost too much for my little heart to handle! Rows of French antique collectibles, artwork and linens, dried lavender, jams and honey, produce and freshly picked flowers. So dreamy. (at Cour d’Appel de Aix en Provence)

Lacrimosa or tear bottles reappeared during the Victorian time period of the 19th century. During this time these bottles were used with special stoppers. The mourners would collect their tears and mourn until the tears evaporated, thus showing the end of the mourning period.

I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of nonfeeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.
