[Book Nerd Links] Eve Babitz, Louise Bourgeois, Bloomsbury, and Harold Bloom

I should probably rename this regular feature, as it often spotlights artists, musicians, and other creative-types. Until I decide on a new one (suggestions welcome!), however, Book Nerd Links it shall remain.

I’m Back…with Appropriate Apologies and This Lovely Painting by Mary Cassatt

Hey all! Please accept my apologies for my (totally unintentional) protracted absence from ASPL. Life got in the way (working, vacation, moving, and computer problems…mostly the latter, really). 

We’re in our new rental house. Yay! I’m typing these words on a brand new laptop. Double yay!

What does this mean for ASPL? Daily posting. Again. FINALLY!

Here is the promised Mary Cassatt painting. It’s a repeat, but a favorite. Enjoy.

See you tomorrow, you lovely, patient people.
