FLOODGATES ON THEIR WAY TO KEEPING VENETIANS’ FEET DRY


Floodgates on Their Way to Keeping Venetians’ Feet Dry

High tides swamp Venice on an annual basis, but a barrier project 10 years in the making will hopefully protect the historic city from the worst of it. Billions have already been spent on the “Moses” project, and it is at least two years from completion.

Island of Loneliness - Rie Sinclair

Island of Loneliness – Rie Sinclair (Click to play this lovely song!)

Where do I go, when it’s all blown over,
Where do I start when it’s all gone to the dogs,
I am not bitter, I’m just trying to recover,
from my island of loneliness.
Where do I hide, from the careless words you speak,
I’m not immune, I just want to see beyond,
beyond my island of loneliness.
So what should I say, I hear the cannons fire in the distance,
is there a place for the tide to change my heart,
stop wasting time, collecting lines of girls, wake up out of it
in my arms, out of your island of loneliness
