In these days when following the daily news is upsetting and dramatic, and while just hoping all the best for this planet of ours and all species on it, here come two sketches. One of them after one of my visits to Venice, Italy, a number of years ago. I hope everyone is fine. --- UPDATE: I have just seen online the 'give2asia blog', in which anyone can make a donation that will go a very long way. Please take a moment to visit the site.
