Although I’m not officially celebrating my birthday until next week, I am going to see a Picasso exhibit with my family today. I’ll be back tomorrow. Have a great Sunday!
The Orange Book by Allen Tucker:
I’m not going to lie; her fingers kind of scare me.
It’s a new season! Have you changed your reading habits to suit the demands of warmer weather, or do those habits stay steady year-round?
I’ve been so wrapped up in creative projects, that my reading has, by my standards, practically slowed to a trickle.
Since 1st June, I’ve finished:
- The Fauves (Art of Century Collection) by Nathalia Brodskaia
I’m in the midst of reading:
- Thinking About it Only Makes it Worse: And Other Lessons from Modern Life by David Mitchell
- Ilya Repin by Grigori Sternin and Jelena Kirillina
To be finished by 30th June:
- Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by Emily Bingham

The other day, through complete happenstance, I found myself listening to/reading the perfect music/book combo. I’ve never consciously attempted to so harmoniously blend the two before, but I’ll definitely do so in the future.

The talented, beautiful, and well-connected artist Vanessa Bell was born on 30 May 1879.
The Library at Dingestow by Charlotte Bosanquet:
I could be happy reading in this room. You?
“There’s no “correct path” to becoming a real artist. You might think you’ll gain legitimacy by going to art school, getting published, getting signed to a record label. But it’s all bullshit, and it’s all in your head. You’re an artist when you say you are. And you’re a good artist when you make somebody else experience or feel something deep or unexpected.”-Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking: or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help
I recently came across my childhood copy of Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse. This edition is from 1946. It’s as charming as ever!
