Ceci n'est pas un poster : why ?

« One morning I take the boat from Fondamente Nove, I take it automatically so I don't know which direction I'm going to take..." the morning is fine, a little cold and there are few people I see they are heading for "San Micel", I start to popa, I'm sitting in the back, I like being in the right seat, I've always done it since I was a child. I probably fall asleep and when I wake up I can't find any point of reference. I hear voices and I understand that we have arrived at our destination. At the landing stage with the name «Orto» I find an island that I have never seen before. In the center there is a large covered palm tree and the island is circumscribed by a low wall, it looks like San Francesco del Deserto but it isn't. Inside is full of greenhouses with lots of plants that I obviously don't know the name of, I find myself in front of a pond full of goldfish, I sit on the marble bench and start drawing..... was it a dream or reality?
