Il Dolce Far Niente (The Sweetness of Doing Nothing)

The phone is silent.
No rings... no dings... no buzzings.
No numbers in little red circles or squares indicating that something... or many somethings need to be addressed.
The calendar is clear.

I barely know what to do with myself... because I should be doing something... shouldn't I?

The answer is yes.
The answer is no.

I should do something for me.
Maybe the something I should do for me is nothing.
Absolutely nothing.

It sounds so sweet.
It sounds so sinful.
So selfish.
So indulgent.
So very necessary.

I deserve a break.
If only I could take it guilt-free...
