Instead I walk and walk and walk. Every glance and glimpse, every shutter blink is more gracefully deliquescent than the last. A sliding gondola, a gargoyle with one eye, a little shop with an old man marbling paper with floating oily inks, a bobbing market boat overflowing with five kinds of artichoke, immigrant vendors selling selfie sticks on the Rialto Bridge. My mind was lulled by my own metronomic footsteps; touristy palazzo, quiet backwater… ah, I am lost again!
