Not just nostalgia but sadness

WordPress prompt: What makes you feel nostalgic?

My fellow inebriates,

I feel nostalgic, and also sad, because the death of ex-Pope Benedict reminded me of this painting.

Dan Lacey’s painting of then-Cardinal Ratzinger wearing pancake vestments

The painting reminded me of the artist, Dan Lacey, who died of brain cancer 11 months ago.

Dan was very kind to me when I ordered a print from him (not this one but this one). I thought he was an absolute genius and would have hung his paintings on every wall if I were in charge of the art at LBHQ. (My parents have vetoed Benedict.)

What's your poison? Drop me a line.
