Reposi en la suno

I have a weakness for napping in the sun.

A couple of years ago, Rob and I discovered the joys of Incubus, starring William Shatner, which is the only feature length film made entirely in Esperanto. The cinematographer was Conrad Hall (American Beauty) so it’s beautifully shot, but still… Esperanto. The point of this is that only phrase I can remember from the film is “reposi en la suno,” which means “to lie in the sun.”


Since then, when the sun falls across the bed or the couch, I will sometimes announce that I am going to reposi en la suno.

It’s warm and cozy and, in Iceland, a rare opportunity. And what I’m going to do right now. Mmm…reposi en la suno.
