Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A Memory: I shall always remember that moment… that view, as I leaned against the railing of the vaparetto which would ferry Lynda and I to the train station. A soft ribbon of pink on the horizon reflected on the choppy water’s crests providing bits of light to early morning toilers. We were not discomforted by the gentle, rhythmic, pitter-pattering rain that peppered our faces, so entrenched we were, lost in our own silent farewell to Venice. I doubt whether I’ll see Venice again as I have many adventures in queue, but I have this memory, evanescent as it may be. 

Daily Gratitude: watching several butterfies fitting in the garden; seeing the waves crashing along dog beach (wish I had my camera); spending time working on a mosaic listening to my playlist

Quote of the Day: Friendship is evanescent in every man’s experience, and remembered like heat lightening in past summers. ~Henry David Thoreau

  1. “I doubt whether I’ll see Venice again”

    You never know. I first saw Venice from a Raketa class hydrofoil that had crossed the Adriatic from Pula in what was then known as Yugoslavia. We actually landed in front of St Mark’s! I never forgot the magic of that day.

    In 2014 I was back in Italy intending to see Rome and Florence, and possibly tour Tuscany. But plans are made to be changed and we (actually a different partner by then) took a high speed train for a three day visit. Very expensive place to stay – also in St Mark’s precinct – but worth every cent.
