Piazza Tale


As always: for my husband red wine, for me white wine.


"When I was young, strangers complimented me."

"What was your last sentence, honey?"

"Strangers made compliments in my youth."

"Often?"

"No, not often. I was shy and had to wear glasses."

"A lot of women have to wear glasses."

"I was too stupid to recognize that I was quite pretty then. Today photos tell me that..."

"Salmon or lamb chops? Or better the vegetarian dish?"

As always: no coffee after lunch.

We walk across the footbridge and reach the piazza.


Heat

the dog

opens one eye

"Today, photos tell me that..."

In looking back, we see what we could not see then; often we were more... than we were.
