i am here. sitting quietly on this wednesday morn in the serene republic of venice. on a couch, by windows with green shutters, on ground level, that open onto a small canal. drinking coffee. eating oatmeal with apples. typing out this postcard to YOU. hello out there. a small boat just motored by the window. i can hear water lapping against the walls.
a sheet of gray covers the city today, but the walls across from our apartment glow faintly with pale yellow, and the faded bricks add another layer of warm light. the water in the narrow canal is pale green like sea foam, but different. like an ocean, but different. like waves, but not. it too glows gently against the gray.
we will walk later. yesterday i logged 16k steps which is like an olympic record for me who usually gets no more than 6k per day and many times less! but it felt effortless. i glide along, look about, feel the cold air on my face, and yesterday the sunshine.
internet is absolutely dismal in this apartment so this may or may not load. i am going to make my bed, open my shutters, and shower while i wait.
more later. with love from venice. xo
