“He owned an expensive camera that required thought before you pressed the shutter, and I quickly became his favorite subject, round-faced, missing teeth, my thick bangs in need of a trim.

Jhumpa Lahiri, Unaccustomed Earth

Brian Selznick
“Time can play all sorts of tricks on you. In the blink of an eye, babies appear in carriages, coffins disappear into the ground, wars are won and lost, and children transform, like butterflies, into adults. That's what happened to me. Once upon a time, I was a boy named Hugo Cabret, and I desperately believed that a broken automaton would save my life. Now that my cocoon has fallen away and I have emerged as a magician named Professor Alcofrisbas, I can look back and see that I was right. The automaton my father discovered did save me. But now I have built a new automaton. I spent countless hours designing it. I made every gear myself, carefully cut every brass disk, and fashioned every bt of machinery with my own hands. When you wind it up, it can do something I'm sure no other automaton in the world can do. It can tel you the incredible story of Georges Melies, his wife, their goddaughter, and a beloved clock maker whose son grew up to be a magician. The complicated machinery inside my automaton can produce one-hundred and fifty-eight different pictures, and it can wrote, letter, by letter, an entire book, twenty-six thousand one hundred and fifty-nine words. These words.

Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Melanie Harlow
“I did love being an uncle to their kids, eight-year-old Harrison, six-year-old Violet, and fourteen-month-old Ethan. Any day now they'd add that fourth to their brood, and my mother was constantly pestering me about catching up, as if we were in some kind of reproductive race.

In fact, she kept one section on her mantel purposefully empty, and she claimed she was waiting for me to get married and have kids so she could put something there. Every so often when I'm at her place, she'll find a moment to stare at it and sigh longingly, or dust it off with a rag. Last Christmas, I gave her a framed photo of Renzo and me and told her that was as good as it was going to get. She harrumphed, but she kept the photo on proud display. She loved that dog almost as much as I did.”
Melanie Harlow, Insatiable

“Yoga is not for the pictures,
Yoga is not for show off,
Yoga is not for acrobatics and gymnastics,
Raw Yoga Practice is for your own self.
You grunt relentlessly on the mat.
You cry on the mat.
You learn to fall and rise up on your mat.
Each asana speaks to you on your mat.
Your Yoga Practice is Unique.
Yoga practice fills you up with gratitude.
You teaches you to be Kind.
Towards yourself and others.
Yoga teaches you to breathe.
Raw Yoga Practice is way beyond physical twisting and turning.
Yoga is not for the Pictures.”
Purvi Raniga
