They say that what we find depends on what we are looking for. Well, that is not entirely true. Life happens when we least expect it to. In the open air museum that is Rome, life bustles at every turn. But there is stillness, too, tucked away where you least expect to find them, a stillness so serene that momentarily stuns you into silence.
