Devotion ~ Question #3 Reading

If I am in the middle of a good book I will take it with me to the doctor's office, etc where a wait is expected. Whatever I am reading at the moment. I am addicted to Anne Perry's mystery novels, so it will likely be a book like that. Most often I carry a magazine with me when I anticipate needing ...

Devotion ~ Question #2 Journals

I have kept a journal from time to time, but it usually ended up being a therapy session for myself, with many painful memories and emotions being poured out, dissected, and dealt with. Those things have been destroyed, they were simply too deeply personal to risk anyone seeing, even after I am long...

Tidbit #10 - Albert Camus: Notes and Connections

I read the essay about Suicide and found my eyes glazing over and rolling back in my head, figuratively speaking. Listening to Viggo read made the writing seem more clear, but still a bit too cerebral for my liking. Camus certainly loved words, and he writes beautifully :cool: , but the thought proc...

Devotion ~ Question #1 Inspiration

Inspiration is a big word and it covers a lot of topics for sure. And I am not entirely sure how I would define inspiration. It can be something as simple as a lecture that makes me believe I can do something by telling me how to go about it. It can be someone or something I admire and desiring to r...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #8 Eugenia's Road Trip

Wow! Talk about a whirlwind tour! I will be savoring travel videos for day as I work my way through their itinerary. :cool: I hope you enjoyed the videos. :hatsoff: It can be difficult to find an informative and professional video of top tourist spots now that everyone has a camera. Some I watched ...

British GQ interview

Well, I am a bit of an innocent, I guess. When I first read him say he "worries about her", I took it to mean he was concerned for her well being. After all, he loved her very much and even when couples break apart, there must be some remnant of caring left. I thought that maybe he thought...

Devotion - Tidbit #7 The Short Story

I will have to read the stories by Coetzee. I enjoyed Waiting for the Barbarians and will need to read it at least once more before a film is released.

I didn't realize there were so many short stories available on line.

Devotion ~ Tidbit #5 Simone Weil

To learn more about Simone, her philosophies, and her legacy, I recommend watching the documentary and checking out the websites listed in the resources.

British GQ interview

I am glad to see him speaking out. Unfortunately, we live in a society where a man accused of abuse is automatically guilty of abuse unless he can somehow "prove" it isn't true. Later, sometimes years later, the burden of proof has been put on the accused. And even when not proven guilty o...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #4 Gallimard and Séte

I have to admit that much of the history of the publishing house and the previous tidbit about Café de Flore make my head spin. So many unfamiliar authors or authors whose name I recognize but have never read their work. :dunce: But Séte -- what an absolutely charming place! I can certainly understa...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #2 Road Trip!

Interesting travel videos! The architecture, both old and new, is amazing. My friend who creates stained glass works would be in heaven to see those massive windows. And oh! that magnificent cemetery! I could spend days exploring a place like that. :cool:

Devotion ~ Tidbit #1 Ristuules

I wish the full Ristuules movie on You Tube had English subtitles. I may attempt to watch it anyway. The woman's voice and the "still life" images are haunting in the trailer. It is an interesting artistic concept and I would like to see how it is carried out in the film Of course, it was ...

Johnny Depp circling Ciro Guerra's 'Waiting For The Barbarians'

I am so thrilled that it appears Johnny will be in Waiting For The Barbarians. Coetzee is a superb writer and the role in question is very dark, and I can see Johnny creating a perfect villain. As some of you know I work over at The Zone as an ONBC book discussion manager. I am so hoping we will be...

Re: LONDON FIELDS Updates

London Fields is supposed to be releasing soon You don't say? That situation seemed to be a hopeless mess, I'm pretty surprised it's going to be released? I guess whoever invested in it wants to get some of their money back, but at this point, seeing Johnny in the same movie w AH and Billy Bob Thor...
