A Humble Magic

Weekend breakfasts, dusty books, homemade bread, afternoon tea, yoga, clementines in winter, baby giggles, dog snuggles, the woods.

The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life. It’s so easy to make it complex. What’s important is leading an examined life.

But the pleasant thing is to wake early, throw open the window, and lie reading in bed.

“Imagination is the highest kite that can fly.” 

Rest In Peace Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014)

"I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"
