A year ago today we were in Venice. Venice in the summer with it's tourist hordes and expensive food is intolerable, but in the winter, the place feels a bit more manageable and well.... it's Venice.
These are two shots from 1/13/04. Gosh it seems light years away.

For now travel is just via the armchair... but soon.

Quotes generally don't do much for me, but this sentence by Katherine Anne Porter seemed worthy of repeat:
"I am always surprised by people who cannot understand range and change, variety and contradiction, tragic feeling, a saving dash of frivolity, and the deep sense of comedy, the salt of life that makes our daily bread bearable."
