So yes, I'm big on daydreaming, on long walks and drives around town. That's when my creative juices flow the best. Solitude is crucial to me so that I have the brain space to pay attention to my ideas.(less)

All those things we are told are a waste of time at best and a sign of schizophrenia perhaps? Well, I make a living doing all those things now. (less)

Hidden in Paris in Italian! I'm excited to announce Ricominciare a Parigi

Non so cosa abbia fatto scattare la scintilla. Un incantevole aprile? O Sotto il sole della Toscana? (Penso che entrambi questi film/libri mi siano stati di ispirazione per Ricominciare a Parigi). O forse ha qualcosa a che vedere con quel pericoloso ragazzo italiano con cui sono uscita per 3 anni? Il punto è: io ho sempre voluto imparare l’italiano. Una volta all’anno mi procuro un set di audio... Read more of this blog post »

Spoiler, or rather a warning. I stopped reading at the graphic rape of a five year old by his sadistic father in the early pages. Also the head-hopping from one narcissistic and/or psychopathic character to the next was exhausting.

Topics Mentioning This Author

Andy Rooney
“Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?", here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!”
