"“... the moonbeams were pouring through a narrow opening, I saw a well-defined spray-bow, beautifully distinct in colors, spanning the pit from side to side, while pure white foam-waves beneath the beautiful bow were constantly springing up out of the dark into the moonlight like dancing ghosts.”" May 06, 2019 12:14PM

If Lisbeth Salander and Dexter Morgan had a baby, it would be Livia Lone.

This book is an amazing thriller, I couldn’t put it down until I finished.

Sometimes I’m hesitant to commit to a whole series—in this case, I can’t wait to continue! Headed to

Livia Lone by Barry Eisler
"Livia (13) and her sister, Nason (11), grow up with their parents and brother, killing and eating their own food. Then one day a white van pulls up, Livia sees her father take money from one of the men, her mom run into the house sobbing and then..." Read more of this review »
Livia Lone by Barry Eisler
"Great Read! I did not know what to expect from this. I had only read a short story by Barry Eisler prior to this book. Livia is a character you are constantly cheering for. She and her sister are sold to be trafficked when they are 10 and 13 by th..." Read more of this review »

Deleted Facebook and Facebook messenger off my phone thanks to this book!

Hard not to feel guilty over phone use after reading, probably because I know I waste too much time on it.

Would read this one again to help ingrain the importance of living the

Love, love, LOVE the HBO show "Insecure."

Love, love, LOVE Issa Rae.

This book ... not so much. It was *alright* but extremely scattered and had a lot of pointless stories, ramblings, anecdotes. After reading Gabrielle Union's We're Going to Need More

Haruki Murakami
“As the days piled up, I wore out, too, and was remade. Nothing stayed still. And time was lost. Behind me, time became dead grains of sand, which one after another gave way and vanished. I just sat there in front of the hole, listening to the sound of time dying.”
Haruki Murakami

Imogen Hermes Gowar
“Touch me again with your speaking. The hectic crowded feeling of being: I would drink it all in. Brimming with things that swell, and make me flip over on myself: elation and jealousy and spasms of love.”
Imogen Hermes Gowar, The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock

Michael Pollan
“So perhaps spiritual experience is simply what happens in the space that opens up in the mind when “all mean egotism vanishes.” Wonders (and terrors) we’re ordinarily defended against flow into our awareness; the far ends of the sensory spectrum, which are normally invisible to us, our senses can suddenly admit. While the ego sleeps, the mind plays, proposing unexpected patterns of thought and new rays of relation. The gulf between self and world, that no-man’s-land which in ordinary hours the ego so vigilantly patrols, closes down, allowing us to feel less separate and more connected, “part and particle” of some larger entity. Whether we call that entity Nature, the Mind at Large, or God hardly matters. But it seems to be in the crucible of that merging that death loses some of its sting.”
Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence

Haruki Murakami
“It was still inchoate, something missing. Something that should be there was appealing to the nonvalidity of absence. And that missing element was rapping on the glass window separating presence and absence. I could make out its wordless cry.”
Haruki Murakami, Killing Commendatore

Imogen Hermes Gowar
“First I sink,
Then I trickle,
Then I rush.
I am here; and here; and here. I touch this surface and also that.
I mingle, I quiver with a thousand voices, and all these voices my own. I am a great tumble of motion which torrents all in unison.
And learning and knowing are the same, and I am a mite, and we are all the space allowed to us.
And if I am made of grief, well! Here is joy, and if I am made a fury, here is peace. Rush, rush, we rush, a sparkling stream through rock and moss, deep in the cold stone of the earth. No daylight here, no dying breaths to catch up. We rush young and bright, and ever-widening, and these bitter atoms are lost in new-minted freshness. We hasten, hasten, onward to the boundless sea.”
Imogen Hermes Gowar, The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock
