I have been so lucky.
In my life I have walked La Seine.
So many times that I am unable to count them.
And that has been, in the third third of my life, the most important thing.
Of that third third.
Of my life.
But more recently I found the Arno.
Words won’t suffice.
So there aren’t any.
About the Arno.
Then, just a month ago, it became the Tiber.
La Seine is my favorite.
And the Arno is a demanding mistress.
I said that there aren’t any.
But there are:
She is so beautiful.
And so beguiling.
But then there is the Tiber.
She is totally unwilling to abandon abandon my reverie.
How Lucky I am.
