Daniela is a regular and vibrant participant at the Carnevale di Venezia. I was lucky to spend a day with her in Burano, and also lucky to meet her the following day when my hands were suffering from the cold. She kindly provided the sleeves of her warm jacket to warm them up. I am hoping to see her again next year!

A colourful note: the term cerulean has been used in English since at least the 1660s; some claim since 1590. It came from the Latin caeruleus “blue, dark blue, blue-green,” and may also have been associated with caelulum, meaning “heaven” or “sky”. The Latin word was certainly employed by Roman authors to describe both sky and Mediterranean waters.
