1. free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant.
I’m old enough now to call Book Club and decaf coffee a happenin’ evenin’. We’re on our 3rd book. Extremely Loud Incredibly Close left me extremely depressed and incredibly ready for The Help. The Help left me awe-inspired. The Forgotten Garden introduced me to my new favorite word. “Beautiful and young and impossibly insouciant.” I find that I like when things are “impossibly” something. What a great way to describe the magnitude of what the author/speaker is trying to say. I’m delighted by it. Impossibly delighted.
The days I feel insouciant (usually Saturdays) are so sunny and whimsical and they’re doused in song. They have a perfect 70/30 mix of being alone with a hot beverage and then being around people I truly care about.
FREE from concern, worry, or anxiety. I feel insouciant now, sipping on a mocha while listening to live music at Well Bred. A boy around the age of 8 just joined the band with his guitar. Impossibly cute.
