St. George and the Dragon (Carpaccio) 1502. Detail.

All the stories I dare to tell of my life and times form the darkness and out into the light, here I’ll pick at the dusty corners after wild nights, tall tales or true, you decide, but I swear it’s all true drawn from deep within lifes cool well, it’s heaven and it’s hell. I have lived a life as in a dream a movie a novel and this is in part my biography

The Countess and I had the pleasure of visiting the floating city of Venice, Italy this past January what a please to get to pay homage to Carpaccio’s St. George and the Dragon in the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni. For me the feeling of walking to and then coming up on the prize of our destination on a small street over a bridge besides a venetian canal, stands this tiny church that holds this divine treasure for all who seek to find it and give it homage. I was and am still deeply moved by the moment, as my eyes adjust to the dimness to reveal the mightiness of the master Carpaccio……
