Diary of an optimist, day 8

“Dolce far niente”, a great Italian saying, which means “it’s sweet having nothing to do”.
Sometimes it’s really sweet to just watch the rain falling, or the wind blowing or the clouds moving.
It’s sweet to sit on the sand and watch the waves breaking or the small boats rocking on the water.
It’s sweet to be in the park and watch the birds looking for something to eat.
Sometimes inertia is indeed sweet.

I finally opted for Bluff!, a book about how each one of us may understand the world the wrong way, based on false conceptions or insecurities. The author is trying to enlighten us to find a way out, not continue to live watching "the wrong film" all the time. 
 
The truths expressed by the author may sound simple or at times commonplace, but in the end we readers need them.
 
We need to remember from time to time what we don’t need.
