To Linger.

From Liliana in Seville I learn the Spanish ritual of sobremesa—“over the table”—that leisurely time after lunch when everyone stays put at the table to talk, relax. A way of eating as important as the food, maybe more.

When laughter and conversation negotiate amiably and call it a draw.

The first afternoon, I start to take my leave soon after the last bite of tocino de cielo.

“No, Peterman, stay. You must learn to linger.”

She offers me a cigar and refills my coffee.

In retrospect, I admit her admonition was spot-on. At least I’m a quick study.

Liliana’s Embroidered Caftan (No. J8270) in pure, crisp cotton. Artful, sweeping blue embroidery embellishes the front of the body and dances alluringly along the sleeves. Flirtatious ruffles at neckline, hem, and elasticized cuffs. Raglan sleeves. Twelve shell buttons at center front. Maxi length. Imported.
