my musing #5
Our capri candle perfectly captures the lemony glamour of my favorite island.
By the time you read this I will be stuffing my face with gnocci on the ISLE OF CAPRI. This will be my 5th visit. Iâ€™m not a very adventurous traveler.
You wonâ€™t find me stalking rhinos in Uganda. Maybe Iâ€™m just an old fart, but if I go somewhere and have a fab time, then I go back. My cautious Jewish gene has made me a creature of habit.
Capri is totally 1950â€™s.
It looks and feels exactly the way it did in The Talented Mr. Ripley. And then thereâ€™s theÂ Casa Malaparte. My husband Simon and I have been obsessed with this freaky mod beautiful house ever since we saw it heavily featured in the Godard movie Contempt. WeÂ are always hanging around the front gate hoping a nice Caprese cleaning lady will let us in so we can snoop around. Hopefully we will get inside on this trip.
Actually, by the time you read this I might be sitting in a Neopolitan jail having been arrested for trespassing.
