    I did something last week that I rarely do.  I took a vacation — a whole week off, with no plans.  Well, the only plans were to drive to my beach house, where I would spend the week relaxing, taking long beach strolls, reading, writing, and just being.  Life is funny…it always has other plans.

    I’m one of those people who, when a book I’ve read is made into a movie, either doesn’t see the movie or is disappointed by it. It’s mostly due to the fact that I’m not really a movie person – it’s hard for me to sit still for such a long period of time. With (…) Read more »

    DO: look the answer up in a book. The other things you see along the way, when searching for answers in a book, are always fun. You can’t help but stop and peak in on other tid-bits as you look for your answer. The mind is hungry to learn and devour words from a page. (…) Read more »

    An outtake from the iconic shoot with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which took place hours before he was killed. When it comes to role models, one of mine has always been Annie Leibovitz. She inspired me from a young age to study photography, and to this day her work sets a standard that few (…) Read more »

    I saw these Bicycle Portraits on Miss Moss and was so intrigued by the photos and the story behind them. Over the course of a 2 year journey in South Africa, Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler compiled portraits and stories from over 500 cyclists. The beautiful photographs have been divided into three books, each containing (…) Read more »

    DO: Make a mark. “I bent down the page who’s triangle still marks that instant. Touching that triangle of yellowed paper today is like sliding my hand into the glove of my seventeen-year-old hand.” “The sentence that had so addled me suddenly made sense (in the paperback…I still own, the phrase has rockets and fireworks (…) Read more »

    DO: go to bed an hour early and read. I have two problems: 1) I never seem to get enough sleep, and 2) I never have enough time to read as much as I’d like. Rather than continue letting this bother me, I’ve begun a little experiment. An hour earlier than I typically would, I (…) Read more »

    To wrap up our posts on Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins, here are some quotes from the final part of the book that inspired me. I loved the ending of this book. After reading the final page, I put down the book and sat for a while in silence, drinking in the words and thinking (…) Read more »

    There are so many amazing quotes and passages in this book, I find myself dog-earing almost every page.  Here are some that have stuck with me lately, along with some inspiring photos. “What difference does it make if you live a million more lifetimes? At least, you can enjoy this one.” “I have found peace (…) Read more »

    At the start of Jitterbug Perfume, on the page in between the dedication and the start of the saga, the author included four quotes. These quotes seem strange in proximity with each other, but they tell you a great deal about the journey you are about to embark on and I felt the need to (…) Read more »
