The traveling glass cheeseburger • Murano

•Talisman•

noun
  1. an object that is thought to have magic powers and to bring good luck.

As I empty my backpack into the armoire in our Venetian apartment, my glass cheeseburger glimmers.  It is 7 a.m. on our first day in Venice.  I kicked my coffee habit 7 years prior, but the smell of an authentic cappuccino is too much to bear.  In the piazza cradling our terrace, a table for two awaits with the glow of morning sun.  I carry my talisman out to the table.  We walk to the water taxi to Murano for our first day of the Glass Art Society Conference 2018.
