Take a tour of Rome's Sistine Chapel

I get lots of emails but this one is fabulously beautiful.

I always look up when I enter homes, buildings, events ... ceilings have always grabbed my attention. Its like a blank canvas to me, if I look towards the sky I feel that's the way to heaven when I pray and when I am day dreaming with my eyes open.

Its cool to watch the fluffy clouds change forms and storm clouds always moving across the sky, like a magnificent ceiling with no limits that's constantly giving me a personal show of change, like a kaleidoscope. I love to lay on my lounger or on the grass and watch them slowly move by, it creates a peace inside me.

I love art and paintings created by the famous artists like Michael Angelo has done on the ceilings, it amazes me the talent he had.

Olld homes with plastered ceilings with swirls of design in each and every ceiling above my head, fascinate me. If ceilings are flat I post posters above my children's beds of maps of the world, yes they think I'm odd at times, but smile.

Attached is a link or virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel which is just incredible. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and always remember to look up and dream. Or put something on your ceiling and think of me :).

Apparently this was done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican. Technology is amazing. To view every part of Michael Angelo's Masterpiece just click and drag your arrow in the direction you wish to see.
