John and Stan are back from Ohio for the Winter, Elaine (from Rhode Island) is visiting my new friend Joanie (recently moved here from Boston) and the five of us met at Sharky's for dinner last night. Although it was a super windy evening, and a bit cool too, being by the sand and surf with good food and friends was a nice way to kick off The Season in Venice. After dinner we walked out on the pier for the sunset, then met a parrot and a baby raccoon.

"It is in being true to myself that I am most of use to others; It is in expressing the joy of my own heart that I am open to hold and behold the hearts of others; It is in seeing my own beauty that I am able to experience the magnificence of others" - Raphaella Vaisseau
