Finding My Word

The simplicity of life here astounds me.  I slept in till roughly noon and it was glorious.  Opening my window and looking out over the sea is just spectacular.  I've needed this time to myself to just reset. Thats what a Sunday, or Sabbath, is right? Appreciating life and the beauty of everything you've been blessed with, right? And readers, I have been blessed with much more than I deserve.

 Lazy day in my pajamas means eating Nutella and pasta-in that order- drinking coffee, sitting with the window open to smell the sea, watching movies, blogging, journaling, and writing letters. Today has been good for my soul.

I watched Eat, Pray, Love today and it got me thinking. What's my word? For those of you who haven't seen the movie, its about a divorcee (Julia Roberts) who travels the world to find herself and find balance.  In the end she finds that occasionally losing that hard fought balance for love is worth it. Crap, if you ask me.  But what do I know?  I love Javier Bardem so it was a good movie in my eyes.
Throughout the movie, she is looking for one word to describe herself and at the end of the movie she chooses an Italian word, "attraversiamo"  that means "let's cross over". It got me thinking, what's my word?  I have no idea, maybe that's what this adventure is for me, finding my word too.

It's dark here now, the candlelight is fading, and Ron Pope is on repeat.

Bonne nuit readers!!
