Venice: April 4, 2015

Fever Dream 2012

There never was such an amusing and beautiful place. . . . We have a room here right at the top just at the side of the Grand Canal: beneath all the gondolas are moored, and the gondoliers make such a noise I cannot think coherently.  It was the strangest dream to step out into our gondola after those two days of rain.

Letter to Violet Dickinson, 
Grand Hotel, Venice
April 4, 1904 (L1 137)
