"Its a terrible feeling, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
Hugh Laurie

A typical scene in most Italian cities, not sure about other places in Europe. But I do sincerely, honestly love these retro-style door bells. While most of them are in stainless steel or painted metal, this one is a special copper or bronze version. Clean, shiny, and possibly a representative of its occupants.

We have them here in London but it would be most rare for a personal name to be attached . . just an apartment number or buisiness.
