Happiness Is

...Cool sweet almond granita for breakfast overlooking the sea.
...A snail's pace stroll with cigarette through the myriad of tiny little alleys.
...Stumbling upon the markets, with produce riping in the shade and sellers yelling, beautiful shiny fish of all kinds, figs the size of apples for 2E a kilo, capers smothered in salt.
...Swimming in the Meditteranean.
...The first kisses of the sun on my skin, turning it the colour of honey.
...A cold Peroni and plate of spaghetti ai gamberi et panna, the prawns fragrant and tasting of the sea, followed by a limoncello that goes down a dream, a Sicilian dream.
...An afternoon nap on a full tummy.

Apart from the fag part it all continues to sound amazing. You paint such a beautiful picture. I had a Tempura Bento at Macquarie Centre last night, it doesn't quite compare with your gorgeous sounding meal. Belissimo!

*gulp* that is just sooo beautiful, they say a picture paints a thousand words, but you have painted a far better picture of Sicily in those sweet few words, sounds like poetry...

Keep writing and bringing a smile to our faces.

p.s. you are so creative with your blogging too,I wish I could add colour to my posts like you.
