Human in Summer

ENGLISH

LAKE GARDA FROM PESCHEIRA, ITALY

It is summer, time to be out there, time to enjoy. After you read this, drop the cell phone, open your eyes and watch—discreetly—the people around you, smell the smells: street food, over-perfumed passerby, the subtle smell of trees, and depending where you are, the ocassional whiff of sewer lines beneath the street. Do this for at least ten minutes every day before you hide yourself again on a make-believe world. You are human, you are meant to be part of your physical reality.

Peschiera, Italy; a sweet surprise on the shores of Lake Garda.
