Patience, Pastry, Paradiso

September 3, 2011

Pazienza. A Sicilian mantra.

For one full year, I had the patience of a saint.

My favorite al fresco coffee bar sat at the foot of this scaffolding.

Each morning the sandblasted stone let loose an angry flurry of grit, turning my laptop a dusty gray.

Eyes stung, ears hurt.

Paradiso lost.
