Diana Cowper had enough equipment to cook a Michelin-starred meal for ten but probably went to bed with a boiled egg and two pieces of toast.
Such a sad and vivid picture.
On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
"I want to give this 4.5 stars. It’s been a long time since I have read a novel so poetically written. A beautiful letter to a mother who can’t read it of traumas of multiple generations. "

“But I should caution that if you seek to plot out all your moves before you make them—if you put your faith in slow, deliberative planning in the hopes it will spare you failure down the line—well, you’re deluding yourself.

“Don’t wait for things to be perfect before you share them with others. Show early and show often. It’ll be pretty when we get there, but it won’t be pretty along the way.”

“Embrace constraint. What you get in return is the art and craft of editing your own life, weeding out what is and isn’t necessary.”
