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.

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.)

Nicola said...

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

Love sitting dreaming in idylls by the sea!

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

That picture looks like the perfect idyll. :)

Ah, yes, the happy places of life.

Patsy said...

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

Patsy said...

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.

Patsy said...

As long as it has wi-fi, Nicola!

Patsy said...

That's just what we need, Mac.

Patsy said...

Oh me too, Rosemary - and you have some lovely ones up your way.

Patsy said...

It's certainly a romantic gesture, Christine.

Patsy said...

It's a gorgeous place, Linda. I hope to go back soon.

Patsy said...

Indeed, Oscar. We all need them, don't we?
