Guys, my little brother is getting married in Istanbul in September to the most beautiful, wonderful woman–and she’s Turkish! Her name is Begum (pronounced “Bay-Goom”) and we first met two years ago when I visited Turkey for a book tour shortly after she met my brother, Josiah. I’ll never forget how she waited in an incredibly long line at a bookstore, for nearly two hours, to say hi (see ph...

Goodnight June by Sarah Jio
“We're each given one life, and it's our job to make it useful, beautiful, and fulfilling. There is no value in suffering through it, doing something we hate. There's no prize at the end for that kind of endurance. Just a spent life.”
Sarah Jio
Sarah Jio liked a quote
Morning Glory by Sarah Jio
“You know, things fall apart. You grieve. And then you sit around and wait for things to somehow get perfect again. But they don’t. They never can. There is no perfect. There’s just different. But different can be wonderful.”
Sarah Jio

“The definition of a true friend is not someone who swoops in when you're going through a rough patch. True friendship is when someone can appreciate your happiness - celebrate your happiness, even when she's not necessarily happy herself.”
Sarah Jio

“If summer had a flavor, it was pink bubble gum.”
Sarah Jio, The Violets of March

“You know, things fall apart. You grieve. And then you sit around and wait for things to somehow get perfect again. But they don’t. They never can. There is no perfect. There’s just different. But different can be wonderful.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Hippocrates

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
Plato

“Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!”
Henry Scott Holland, Death Is Nothing at All

“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you.”
Beatrix Potter
