Dolce Far Niente
I am obsessed with home right now for I am in search of one. A quiet place, a private place where I can retreat from everything. There is a beautiful expression in Italian ‘Dolce Far Niente.’ The sweetness of doing nothing. For me, these spaces are exactly that, places that require little more than just being in them — doing nothing.
There should be at least one room, or some corner,
where no one will find you and disturb you or notice you. You should
be able to untether yourself from the world and set yourself free,
loosing all the fine strings and strands of unison that bind you,
by sound, by thought, to the presence of other men.
