Their real life relationship is revealed in many fictional incarnations. Zelda and Scott may have been the first 'it' couple, building their life together in accordance with a fictional image fueled by the media of the day. They lived life in epic fashion, as only characters in one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novels might. (less)

"Parents will enjoy this silly likeness of a toothless toddler to Godzilla. The illustrations are very cartoon-ish and the glossy pages make it feel like a Pixar movie."

“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”
Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver
“Listen--are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?”
Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver
“to live in this world

you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go”
Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Vol. 1

Mary Oliver
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
Mary Oliver
