CHROMATICS “INTO THE BLACK” (by AlbertoRossini)
Photo of the Day - June 2, 2012
Petra, the magical ancient land in Jordan, turns almost mystical by night. Candle lamps guide visitors down the mile-long Siq, and when you reach Al Khazneh, it is overwhelming to see this sight. People are gathered around these candles spread out in front of the Treasury while musicians play soulful music.

In our living together we are one another’s hands, ears, and feet. Marriage redoubles our strength, rejoices our friends, causes grief to our enemies. A common concern makes trials bearable. Common joys are all the happier, and accord makes riches more pleasant; it is even more delightful than riches for those without wealth. Marriage is the key of moderation and the harmony of the desires, the seal of a deep friendship.
-St. Gregory the Theologian
