What (This) Girl Wants: Il Dolce Far Niente

In Italian: the sweetness of doing nothing. In the words of Lucinda Williams: “Cool, quiet, and time to think.”*

For me, it’s lying like a cat in the sun at the pool, alternately watching the olive trees blow silver in the breeze, the kids creating a tent from towels and cushions, and reading.

For Magnolia, it’s sneaking off to the tree swing on the lawn beneath our house, or stalking the butterflys in the lavender.

Whatever works! And more of it.

*The great Lucinda also mentioned “pens that won’t run out of ink” and “passionate kisses” as must-haves. Those too, please.
