Daily Diversion #437: Writing Space

I’m finally getting my new writing studio put together. As most of you know, our recent (okay, it was two+ months ago) move was ridiculous and awful. Unpacking things in my studio was pretty much at the bottom of the list. Better late than never, though. Here’s a partial view of the area above my desk.

Eleanor Roosevelt on Life

“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can think bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.”–Eleanor Roosevelt (The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt)

Shared for the last nine words of the quote.

Eleanor Roosevelt (20 July 1933).

What I’m Reading: 18th October 2019

My book consumption slowed to a trickle in the weeks surrounding our move. Too much to do, too little sleep, no time to think or, after a certain point, properly process words. It was that draining. No joke.

Now that most of the volumes are back on their shelves, my reading is nearly back to its normal, healthy pace. Yay! 

Here’s what I’m actively digging at the moment:

  • Murder in St. Augustine: The Mysterious Death of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley by Elizabeth Randall (I’m including this book, even though I finished it last night.)
  • Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer Edited and with an Introduction by Antonio D’Ambrosio
  • Hollywood Character Actors by James Robert Parish with Earl Anderson, Richard E. Braff, John Robert Cocchi, and Harry Purvis
  • A Glorious Freedom: Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives by Lisa Congdon
  • Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge by Eleanor Herman
  • A Little Tour in France by Henry James

Portrait of Henry James by John Singer Sargent (1894)
