You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 17, we are $5,700 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Mentre dormi, Amor fomenti
il piacer de' sonni tuoi
con l'idea del mio piacer.

Abbia il rio passi più lenti;
e sospenda i moti suoi
ogni zeffiro leggier.

Siam navi all'onde algenti
Lasciate in abbandono,
Impetuosi venti
I nostri affetti sono,
Ogni diletto è scoglio,
Tutta la vita è un mar.
