The young man and the old man and the Sea

In a summer of a thousand July`s (Billie Holiday sings, like Marlene Dieterich and Astrud Gilberto too, Dizzy Gillespie) the red flag waved, swimming strictly prohibited. One man is in the Sea, with the waves, they eat him. He’s gone, then he is back and gone. Marcello, rescue swimmer calls over. From the neighboring beach the Lifeguard is alarmed. The Sea stay`s alone, Marcello heads off. The missing shows up, starts to walk out. Which elderly man would like to be rescued by a young man, it thinks in me. Foto: Eva Gossling, Paestum.
