Romanza



I am a fool.

If I had more sense, I would see the world the way it truly is.

I would have more money in my encroaching old age.

But I am a Romantic.

Always the Show has carried more freight for me than the Biz.

Ah.

So be it.

You can only play the cards you are dealt.

Here is the upside:

You know what happiness is for me.

Niente.

Nothing.

Strolling alone or with friends along the back streets of Venice.

The Madonna dell' Orto, the home of the great Tintoretto paintings - and a STOLEN Titian which has been represented for years by a color Xerox and a note - receives as many visitors in five years as the Basilica in San Marco has on an average morning.
