Dreaming of an Island

There was a time when I dreamed of having an island of my own. Many have this dream.

Then we realize that we need a lot of money and/or a sustantial income. The dream remains a dream.

The island above is the islet of San Paolo in Lake Iseo, Italy, in a misty morning. Ah, by the way, the owners of this island produce weapons. Here it is!

“But the landscape of devastation is still a landscape. There is beauty in ruins.” – Susan Sontag
