The Beauty of Doing Nothing

…which the Italian’s call, “Il Bel Far Niente”.  (Included in my senior quote in the yearbook actually.)  I have an addiction to “Eat, Pray, Love”.  I can’t put it down.  I have been pleasantly attacked by yet another book from Oprah’s Book Club.  It doesn’t help that I have already been fascinated with Italy and am now tortured to read about every single pastry, stone, and brown eye that I hope to experience myself someday.

So while my bank account gave me a thumbs down for airplane ticket-buying, I did manage to wrestle an adventure in Tie Siding, Wyoming.  I will be embarking in a mere two hours on my second escapade with my father into the Wild West that is Medicine Bow National Forest.  I am resisting the seduction of my camera, which desperately desires to capture the breathtaking magnificence for all of you to see.  But I inherited my father’s nature genes (the love of nature really might be genetic according to this article I read!  More on that later..) and this land is so pure,  so completely unspoiled by the ravaging damages humans inflict, that I would be stealing some of its innocence.

So if you care to see the whitest of mountains with a crystal blue lake tipped with glacial ice, and your pockets don’t have enough coins to carry you to Alaska, you will just have to come with me.  I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation of a blessed two and a half days without having to see a computer, a phone, or hear anything that will provoke a solution from me other than pulling out my fishing pole.

Have fun in society.

    You need to read this book by Richard Paul Evans that I have. It’s set in Italy, called “The Lost Promise”. It is SOOOO good!
