Still, when I think about my trip to Venice, it feels almost like a dream. Venice has this enchanting charm that I'd never forget. I met some interesting people there too. But I remember one defining moment where my heart just broke.

I am sitting in this little off-the-path piazza, it's around 6pm. The aroma from homes nearby, children running, some playing a board game, and laughter. I hear moms calling for their kids... The simple tranquility of the place was so profound, somehow it was almost painful. And there, I sang 'As Tears Go By':

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by

My riches cant buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by

A dress-up concert.

Vivaldi was born in Venice.
