Idyll

An idyll is a simple, happy and peaceful situation or period of time, or picturesque scene or incident. Often they're rustic, rural or romantic (or all three). It can also mean a poem or other artwork which describes something so idyllic. Some of the places we visit with our van are idyllically suited to my becoming an idyllist.

    1. Lovely isn't it, Hilary? It's Mottisfont Abbey, in Hampshire.

  2. Rustic, rural, and romantic. I picture a log cabin in the mountains. One with all the amenities, of course. (Because an outhouse is just not romantic.)

    1. Sounds good to me, Mac - or I could swap the cabin for our van. That way I'd be sure to have all the amenities I needed.

  3. I love that word and its meaning. I think we should all head over to Alex's idyllic log cabin.

  5. Wagner composed the Siegfried Idyll as a birthday gift for his wife. Let's hope she thought it was an idyllic pressie.
