Sunrise over Perugia

“to scant the truth
of the light itself
as it was reflected from”
-William Carlos Williams, “Cézanne”

There is an advantage to working Hong Kong hours while living in Italy, which makes me feel better about missing out on life while here.

When I take my lunch break, it’s 6 AM here in Perugia. The streets are quiet–the only people out are the sanitation workers cleaning up the evening’s empty booze bottles and cigarette butts.

Greeting the morning in Perugia

Just a short walk away from my apartment is a scenic overlook facing east. It’s a great location to watch the sunrise over the hills below Perugia. After a week of overcast mornings, I found clear skies this Friday. There was an added perk of fog rolling through the fields in the distance.
