Crepuscolo

Crepuscolo is the Italian word for twilight or dusk. I never knew that til I asked google translate just now. Just like ‘calice’, it’s not a word in my Italian vocabulary.

Right now I’m sitting out the front of my hotel in Treviso enjoying the crepuscolo. You need to be a certain distance away from the equator to experience twilight- we get it in Melbourne but not in Brisbane, nor in Sydney or Perth. I’m sinking a beer whilst I wait for the hotel buffet to open and thinking that my work here is done, soon I will be home enjoying the dusk on my front porch in Avondale Heights.

At moments like this, I am reminded that life is good.
