I'm soaking up what sunshine I can gather and what laissez-faire I can fathom so that I'm fortified for the adventures of the looming rentrée.The lapping of the waves on the shore, the faint hint of watermelon with salty nuances smelled in the background, the driftwood on the beach, the changing moods of the summery clouds passing over the mountains afar, shading and lighting the distance into an undulating bosom... The fried calamari over the squid with spinach and the joy of artisan-made gelato in flavors such as "bacio" (i.e. kiss). Leaping unto the risen sun high in the sky seizing what's there of the day, backpedaling into the night listening to the crickets monotonous song...That's life, my friend.
But I have not forgotten about readers wanting their little piece of excitement. Therefore a giveaway, a fun one hopefully, as it involves surprise European-only perfume samples from my drawers (which are set to overflowing, ssssst).
Enter a comment saying what you'd like to read more of on these pages -come the time to be back and jolly- and I will pick a random winner.
Prize will be sent in a few days after the winner is announced early next week.
