I'm floudnering a bit with catch-up in the blogworld and, for that matter, in "real life," having just returned from a visit to family in Rome. But I've saved and saved the link to your post because I so want to make sure I tell you how much it touched me.
And then I scrolled down to your post on your love for Italy, and I see that the comment I was sure I'd left, thanking you for reading suggestions, doesn't appear there, which makes me look very rude and ungrateful. In fact, I managed to order a secondhand copy of the Bernini book (through ABE books, a wonderful source). It's glorious! And gradually I'm working my way toward/through some of your other recommendations. Thanks very much!

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
