Today it was last minute shopping, Liesbet bought a leather bag and I bought two millefioro pendants. We walked out to visit “The most beautiful bookshop in the world” and the owner Frizzo Luigi just might be right! His shop floods every time the waters rise so most of his millions of books are lying in boats or baths. We bought a couple of books and I made a few photos.
We then took a lunch of sachertort and tea or coffee. It is still bright but noticeably colder, there are frosts predicted here for next week.
Thanks for all those who have read and reacted to this blog and most of all thanks to Ruud for allowing me this indulgence. I will post a farewell here tomorrow.
Bless bless.

A chill wind blew through the city of Venice this day. Whilst yesterday saw a shedding of the excess layers of clothing, today required a zipping of zips and a jerking of jerkins. This was the penultimate day of running with the camera, weather permitting we will walk out again tomorrow but Sunday will be spent getting our packing organized, a necessary act as many of the artists we have met have given me books, catalogues and art works for the VEC archive and I will be returning with considerably more than I arrived with. The first few days back at home will be spent burning the CDs I have promised people. If you didn’t receive the CD(s) I promised you by the end of the month contact me by email.
…and whilst on that subject! I am an audio artist, I put considerable effort into sound detail, if you receive a CD from me please do not play it via your laptop computer loudspeakers as that would be the same as trying to look at a painting through a brown smoked glass window that has not been cleaned for 23 years! The best way to hear VEC audio is on a CD player with a pair of quality stereo headphones plugged into a hi-fi system, good loudspeakers are also good. All VEC audio CDs are verified after the burning so they leave me fault free.
Today we bought trinkets and gifts for family and friends, carnival mask fridge magnets, bead bracelets, millefiori paper weights and the like, not quite enough wampum to buy Manhattan with, but enough. Yesterday in Murano I bought myself a little pill box with a lid of green and white millefiori and a black millefiori bracelet to hang on the corner of my computer monitor.
