Cooking with Love

“If you are careful,’ Garp wrote, ‘if you use good ingredients, and you don’t take any shortcuts, then you can usually cook something very good. Sometimes it is the only worthwhile product you can salvage from a day; what you make to eat. With writing, I find, you can have all the right ingredients, give plenty of time and care, and still get nothing. Also true of love. Cooking, therefore, can keep a person who tries hard sane.”
― John Irving, The World According to Garp

  • C. Booth is one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve been using their tea tree oil toner on my face every day for the past week and a half and it has cleared up my skin straightaway. (Not that while I like C. Booth, I don’t think this effect is specific to just their product; rather it’s sold me on tea tree oil in general)
  • TIME talked to the man who revised U.S. dietary guideline for 5 tips on eating healthy
  • Writers, when you get discouraged, never forget that the The New York Times said of Steinbeck during his lifetime: “limited talent is, in his best books, watered down by tenth-rate philosophizing.” Steinbeck never published another work of fiction and died 6 years later

Book Love: Silence

SILENCE, by Amorito Citrella

The books held her in a total silence, a depth and richness she’d never imagined, that made the air hum and the pages vibrate with a music and a promise of hope, of magic, of adventure, of home, of thousands of worlds to be lived in across the smooth, slippery brown boards (made for dancing) of the library room…

Sea

The sea will always be yours, they told her. No matter how life breaks or shapes you, how many cracks it makes in your beautiful surface, you belong to the sea and it to you. In it, you are whole, and you.

Free.

Quotidian: Virginia Woolf
