AN ANCIENT AIR by Bradley K. Rosen
They say the air is older in Italy than it is in America. They say the cotton ball clouds and the rolling vineyards and farmlands and the sun’s warm light have been around for an ocean’s eon, since the day before Jesus rolled the rock. I know this romantic idea of an older air is certainly a scientifically ridiculous one, yet, when you are there, in Italia, the idea that the air is older somehow seems plausible, seems more I do believe in fairies.
