Time takes its toll

Sometimes, the metal-works we notice in Venice are so fragile. They look as though they would crumble with a touch that wasn’t gentle.

I’m grateful that they have survived this long.

    What I’ve noticed in Italy is that women seem to be allowed to age gracefully and still be considered beautiful….like Venetian buildings.
