Letting Be

It’s quite funny that for someone who is so generally “quiet” I have such a hard time just getting my mind to be still but I’m learning to just let things be, and take the weight of the world off my shoulders.

Here are some things that have caught my eye lately:

Postbourgie Takes a look at who can appropriate stories and culture

The Grey Lady on Lucy and Oscar Hijuelos’ Muse

Spot-on:
5 Ways to Cultivate an Active Social Network infographic

Not so much: Prince declares “the internet is over.”

Loving 
Sade – Babyfather “Your daddy love come with a life time guarantee…” – Sweet and sexy video to a sweet song.

Bookshelf Porn – no explanation neeeded

Random confession of the day: I am addicted to Nutella – it’s like crack.

Books I want to read:
The Passage by Justin Cronin
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A Novel by Aimee Bender– the description reminded me of LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks – My best friend is reading this – she’s lending it to me next.
Let the Right One In: A Novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and Ebba Segerberg – Vamps, bullys, and vendettas – coming to the big screen this fall.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot – I’ve always found genetics fascinating.
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet: A Novel by David Mitchell – Who can resist a tale of forbidden love?
