Bellagio: month on the lake - Saturday

I am enjoying the delicious irony of reading on my Kindle the letters of a former local - Pliny the Younger - written around 100 A.D. It is said that he had a villa near here - one of many. How surprised he would be to see his work live on almost 2,000 years later delivered through the air to a device that would seem like some magical tablet to his eyes. And yet today’s teenagers might deride it for only being gray-scale and not color.

Would that I could create something that would have such an impact or provide value or even passing interest so long after I have passed and left this mortal coil.
