The third song in the Someday in Paris OST

Week #3 and song #3.

This time, and it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise since Zara and Leon’s love story happens in France, is a song in French.

It is one of my absolute favorite songs of all time and I listened to it on vinyl, years before I started writing down Zara and Leon’s story. So much...

What is life? Though it does sound like a complex word we often take a deep breath after mentioning, as we stop and think to ourselves of the pains and complications, yet mostly the deep secret behind its existing. Obviously, it’s more than just living organisms, singing birds, pure waters or war...

Eva’s Byte #242: Under the Influence of Absent-mindedness

Is your focus purely on the task at hand, above all else?

The absent-minded professor is one of those familiar, stereotyped fictional characters whose academic brilliance is undermined by forgetfulness, blunders, and/or obliviousness to surroundings.

Escribir poesía sin la presión de tener que hacerlo bien y que encima te seleccionen para un monográfico dedicado a la "Poesía pésima", es un suave placer y un enorme desahogo, algo así como cagar flores.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
