Dresden is a study in delicacy and steel. Once the Jewel Box of Europe, this masterpiece of baroque and rococo has a rich and turbulent legacy of culture and art, war and destruction. There is energy in such synchrony of past and present, wonder in the timelessness of a city reborn. On stormy evenings, when painted clouds brush roofs and towers with the colors of heaven, the solitary watcher under his black umbrella could be you or me or anyone with an eye for beauty and a sensibility for love.
