City Series – Maria Salsilli in Lido, Venice, We the Isolationists (85th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Maria Salsilli]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see my beloved lagoon, so peaceful and still… no boats, hardly any vaporettos, just the odd seagull. San Marco is looming in the distance, everything the same but so profoundly different. This view from the Lido is tantalizing, so close and so unreachable… I haven’t been in town, as we from the Lido say, in over a month. When will I be able to go there again? I am still happy with the mere sight of it, and with all the beautiful sunsets that each passing day I am gifted.
“We the Isolationists” series urges folks from any part of the world to share a brief diary starting with “I close my eyes in my self-isolation from Corona… and I see…” Not more than 100 words. With a horizontal-sized selfie, along with your city name… please mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
