* currently reading both, hoping to read most of the others. I'm crazy about

a tres sweet tribute to much loved Swedish dog Morran - so happy I could be a part of her book

& I sometimes watch music videos & I love this song, the strong women & the cinematography


  1. The Owls landed they are wonderful!

    I have the Artist's Manual {it's excellent} and I love, love Geraldine Brooks...I am reading a few photography books {trying to get inspired...} and A Complicated Kindness {which I am loving. She has a way with words...} and, as ever, the dictionary. :)

    Actually that's all I am doing today. Lounging in bed reading, with occasional trips to the coffee maker and computer...

    Be well.

  2. Odd how I can be in such a different climate and yet my sky outside my window looks so similar to yours... is it because we're both on the water? Wondering...

    My bedside reading list is all sci-fi and fantasy these days. Much of it young adult stuff, a la Harry P0tter but with girls as protagonists, natch. Your reading list is much classier. Heh.
