Jonathan Stylites

A tropical eight degrees at 2pm this Immaculate Conception. If you could walk in mist like fallen autumn leaves, today you'd be knee deep in it. The clouds hang so low over the lake you feel you have to duck in case you bang your head. In certain places and at certain times the mist dissolves into rain. 

This Jonathan picture is posted today to remind me of the last day of pure, bright sunshine, when I tool a seat on Cannobio's lungolago, next to the ferry port and read my book in the sun.


Ferry lookout, Cannobio.

Hope he doesn't plan to be up there 37 years - that'd be enough bird poop to silt up the lake!

We have a Heron standing quite still on a roof nearby fending off a couple of Crows who think he's on their territory. He got fed up with the attacks and gave one of them a good pecking with his long sharp beak. They never came back.

What a lovely ferry lookout. I can feel the serenity and would long to st in peace and write there. Beautiful.
