Monday inspiration:

All good fortune is a gift of the gods, and you don't win the favor of the ancient gods by being good, but by being bold."
~ Anita Brookner

Zeus, king of the godsHere in the land of ancient gods, this quote rings true! I'm in Rome now, and one thing is certain -- those Roman emperors who ruled the ancient world were bold, and accomplished many things.

Were they good guys? Not most of them. Bold? Definitely! :-)

I'm in Italy now, scoping out a new Italy trip for women for 2009. I've always been fascinated with Rome, and the amazing history here. And Pompeii (the lost city, buried by a volcano) is another all-time favorite. I'll keep you posted on what I come up with!
