I am not quite sure how I will best share my Venice trip photos with my readers. They are all on Facebook, and are all viewable in my Instagram account, but organizing something like eight or nine hundred photos will be time-consuming.

In the meantime, please enjoy this photo of me with Shakespeare that I took just after I got home yesterday afternoon. Shakespeare really was glad to see me, I think. Even now, he is next to me on my couch, happily curled up.
