Ah, Italy as the Transcendentalists saw it!
Looking for a lovely vacation next March? Why not tour Italy with a group of Unitarian Universalists and learn more about the Transcendentalists while you're there? The Rev. Jenny Rankin, one of the ministers at the First Parish in Concord, Mass. (where I once worked as high school youth programs director), is leading a ten-day expedition March 19 through 29, 2009. "Our itinerary includes Rome, Pienza and Florence, and is packed with visits to important classical sites such as the Pantheon, the Forum, the Vatican, Margaret Fuller's and Emerson's apartments in Rome, as well as visiting Theodore Parker's gravesite and the Brancacci Chapel in Florence." Ah! I've always wanted to see Italy in the spring. Maybe when Philo Jr is older.
There are still spots available on the tour. Learn more at the First Parish website.
