Hello, everyone. I wanted to stop by and say hello to you all. I’m sorry I’ve been so distant. I’ve been going through a really rough time and needed to take a beak from Tumblr. Thank you for all the kind messages. They put a smile on my face. I’ll check in from time to time, answer messages; maybe even make a return to Tumblr again. I love you all.
Music was the interest closest to Lucrezia’s heart, and one she shared with her husband [Alfonso d’Este], who was himself an accomplished player of the viol. She employed her own singers, pipers, and lute players, even her own dancing master, spending a large part of her income on the patronage of music. She was particularly fond of songs, of the lovely Spanish poems that were set to music by her musicians; and she vied with her rival, Isabella d’Este, to attract the best players and composers to her court.

"As soon as I got the part, I read them all. I love that wonderful, endless, infinite possibility of adventure. It glows warm in my heart. When you’re making something like that, your head is in the clouds all day long."
