Hi All, A staff member received an entry on August 28th, which has not shown up on the blog. I am submitting it here on his behalf. This is from Aloysius, and he says "The beauty and culture of our city always spurs me on to continue to write poetry, take photographs, and inspires my art and my writing." Take a look at his photograph here: https://goo.gl/photos/obJkqQjUWgbQB98o6 Thanks!!
