Sicilian Delectables

Cinquecento

(Uno) 1. Hearing Feist playing on Italian radio! While I was at work, no less – I love it that we have music playing in the office.

(Due) 2. Finishing up my book with a glass of wine and a delectable Sicilian dessert (see photos below).

(Tre) 3. The book itself: “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd. It was full of vivid images and a sweet story of rising with the swell of your emotions without letting yourself drown in them.

(Quattro) 4. Hearing the wind howl around the house all night and into the morning. This morning we found two huge flower pots knocked over in our front drive. They were around 80 pounds each! That’s some wind.

(Cinque) 5. Sicilian delectables – yum, yum! Almond brittle, macaroon type cookies with pistachio and almonds, and a fried bread puff topped with a honey and fruit extract syrup.

Cento

Miranda July is sailing onto my horizon again and I couldn’t be happier, thanks Mike! I have been looking forward to watching her latest movie, “The Future,” since it premiered at SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) and I missed it. Ms. July bewitched me with her first film “Me and You and Everyone We Know.” I delved into her work and found another compelling work: her book of short stories, “No one belongs here more than you.” Her work is unique, outrageous, touching, squirming, and striving to hit some level of truth as she sees it in our world.

The Sweets!
