I’d give anything to be with Jamie right now in Venice.  But business, a book launch and a baby girl keep me Stateside (… and responsible and thrifty).

What do I wish for the most? Venice at night with my husband. A glass of prosecco takes us from sunset to black and a long evening of flavors lies before us.  What do I wish for second? Strolling the Rialto Market in the morning and not emerging from the stalls and stands until the City of Mirages has put on her best and is ready for dinner.

“It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone.”
