I saw the people around me disappear into their homes.
I saw a duck cross the motorway with her three ducklings.
I saw plants keep growing… the sun keep shining.
I listened and observed the people around me when they came out again.
I was privileged and lucky. although a bit sad. to see Venice without tourists.
and now that I observe my masked reflection… the only thing I can think of. are the five minutes I spent suspended high in the sky. without noise. the distant earth. and the amazing sensation of being able to fly at last. and maybe to flee.
