The sweetness of doing nothing.
I dote on Italy and Venice and the mysterious, unspoken stories inside catacombs, and pasta, and il dolce far niente! Thank you, Elizabeth Gilbert for the simple language lesson. I love lazy days and it’s even lovelier to have THE perfect excuse to bum around—a beautiful, self-assuring Italian expression that understands (and validates, mind you, :p) the exquisite experience of not having to do anything. AT ALL. Il dolce far niente!
Taking this to heart, I resolved to un-busy me self last weekend.
For Phoebe, il dolce far niente has become a way of life.
I can think of lazier days ahead and bask in the sense of liberation that comes with them.
Once in a while, the world needs a break from the endless fretting. Hence, I will idle away more and embrace some la dolce vita ~ the absolute sweet joy of everyday life. :)
Right. Now I’m in the mood for some lazy singing.
