owlfish and I did something this evening that I think is pretty amazing. Earlier today, we made a date for her (in London) to watch the Piazza San Marco webcam from around 6 to 7 pm (Venice time) while I was drawing. I figured out the camera angle and stood where I thought she would be able to see me. I told her how many arches to count from the clock tower. I also wore a bright red wool coat. She did several screen captures and did indeed find me, though I am very, very small. You can go to owlfish to see. This is the drawing I made during our experiment. The piazza is dry tonight, and workers are setting up a fancy garden that will be the stage for Carnevale events over the next ten days or so.

I have such lovely memories of Carnevale with you 14 years ago. It's hard sometimes to believe that it was so long ago as all that, when the memories, the sights, the sounds, the scents are still so vivid in my mind's eye.

Thank you again for a wonderful introduction to Venice and a magical short holiday.

I remember your visit well, but it is hard to believe it was so many years ago. Iam sure I have photos of you somewhere in a historic dress that you wore for Carnevale. So glad that you were able to come.
