Mawson Bear There I was napping on my cushion as we bears do until suddenly, with no warning, I woke and was napping no more! It was horrible!

The thing for writer-bears to do is to find a cushion, or possibly a whole pile of cushions, and nap. Wake and look hopefully about for any stray ponders. If there are still no ponders, look in the fridge for the honey-choco-mello-creams. (less)

Mawson Bear and 6 other people liked Kath B's review of The Painted Veil:
The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
"A fabulous read by one of my very favourite writers. It's years since I read anything by Somerset Maugham and returning to him via this book was a pleasure. He is an amazing storyteller with a real talent for exposing human weakness which lead to dis" Read more of this review »
Mawson Bear and 35 other people liked Amina's review of The Bookshop:
The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald
"I had The Bookshop sitting on my currently reading shelf for longer than I can remember. I started it and got distracted by other reads. I am so glad I finally picked it up on a cloudy rainy day. This book and the current mood created by perfect aest" Read more of this review »
The Truth About Bears by Maxwell Eaton III
"Informative and funny. If you see a bear in the wild, don't run away or climb a tree. Instead, make your voice very deep and back away slowly."
Mawson Bear and 84 other people liked Andy Marr's review of Persuasion:
Persuasion by Jane Austen
"Jane Austen understood that nothing is sexier than standing seven feet away from someone, making brief eye contact, and then going home."

“This best time to Nap is ... after the one before.”
Mawson Bear

Crazy for Young A...: * 2019: A-Z Reading Challenge 90 425 Dec 22, 2019 01:23AM  
“Why do cats sleep so much? Perhaps they've been trusted with some major cosmic task, an essential law of physics - such as: if there are less than 5 million cats sleeping at any one time the world will stop spinning. So that when you look at them and think, "what a lazy, good-for-nothing animal," they are, in fact, working very, very hard.”
Kate Atkinson

“This best time to Nap is ... after the one before.”
Mawson Bear

“They're just weeds, love, they don't belong anywhere.' Her granddaughter stuck out her bottom lip and furrowed her brow.
'That doesn't seem very nice. Everything belongs somewhere.”
Kathryn Hughes, The Letter

“But what attracted me to weeds was not their beauty, but their resilience. I mean, despite being so widely despised, so unloved, killed with every chance we get, they are so pervasive, so seemingly invincible.”
Carol Vorvain, A fool in Istanbul - Adventures of a self denying workaholic
tags: weeds

“It developed gradually. Quietly. But I remember the moment I thought to myself, ‘Something is not right with my mind. Something is not right here.’ Admitting this was the first step in my recovery. I didn't need anyone to diagnose me with anxiety or depression to know that this was my struggle. I felt so attached to the feelings, the uncontrollable thoughts, the incessant fear, all of which dictated my everyday experience. I allowed my struggle to become my identity. I didn't know I had any other option.

On good days, I feel hopeful. About life. About my recovery. On bad days, I spend my time thinking that life is no better than death. Despite the mental battles I face each day, I remain resilient. Not just for my loved ones, but for myself. Because deep down, I know I deserve it. The relationship I have with myself is one I refuse to give up so easily.”
Ally K.
