Reading Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities while in Venice is like:
— — –

i was going to write a list of metaphors that summed that up, but it boils down to this, that it is pointless to do so
to read a description of the magical place in which you are is to not be in that magical place

but reading it in venice is…

donate to triumph of the now?
there are cost involved in this, financial as well as psychological/social. please give generously. I can offer a pdf of SCAT TO BE POO as thanks for any donations, though you can just donate money with nothing in return. Thank you for your support, blog readers!
