“The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” – Ernest Hemingway, via Live.to.the.point.of.tears
Who better than the gregarious Hemingway to give us this little gem? No need to be a writer to appreciate this reminder to take it in, take it all in.
Happy Monday everyone!
Who says it never rains in Southern California? Well I’ll tell you what… It’s been comin’ down this weekend. And I love every single second of it. With just a smattering of these kinds of days here in LA, I’ll take what I can get. There’s just something so soothing about this weather. Below, a few pix from my relaxing, lazy, rainy weekend:
Rain Boots. Finally.
My friend’s birthday dinner at Superba Snack Bar in Venice.
Saturday morning LA Flower Market jaunt. Sigh. Gorgeousness everywhere.
The best birthday party idea, ever: A grilled cheese and beer party at Andrew’s Cheese Shop. Five different grilled cheese sandwiches, five different beer pairings. “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” Or is it?
Well look who the cat dragged in… My little brother, in LA for the next couple weeks.
“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” – John Burroughs
Have a great week everyone!
