I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Arrivederci Venezia

One last ride on the Grand Canal before going to dinner, this time enjoying the details: mosaics, arches, quatrefoil windows, all the hodgepodge of centuries of influences floating above the water.

I love this woman's face. It's so different from the faces on either side, which are more classical. It must have been copied from someone the sculptor knew. And, I'd like to think, loved.
