Dolce Far Niente / by Roni Delmonico

"The sweetness of doing... nothing."  Italians are masters at it.  But then, sometimes.. so are Hawaiians.;-)  Last year, we went to Cape Cod in search of our adventurous twenty year old selves and that was really fun.  This year... we decided that dolce far niente... is what our 40 something year old selves prefer to cultivate.  I met him when I was 20.  Married him when I was 22.  Twenty six years of learning the inherent sweetness in every one of those days since then.  There is certainly joy in the journey...  and comfort in that Italian + Hawaiian sweetness.
