Rime is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the large win­dow in my stu­dio over­look­ing the Hud­son Riv­er and indus­tri­al Man­hat­tan.   This piece was occa­sioned by a recent trip to Flo­rence, Italy, where I had lived and stud­ied in the late 60’s.  The text is tak­en from a lyric poem by Petrar­ch that I had mem­o­rized at the time and remem­bered still for its beau­ty.  And the win­dow becomes the locus for a con­cep­tu­al revis­i­ta­tion, con­tem­pla­tion, and reverie.
