Splash du Jour: Wednesday

We were not having any fun, he had recently begun pointing out. I would take exception (didn't we do this, didn't we do that) but I had also known what he meant. He meant doing things not because we were expected to do them or had always done them or should do them but because we wanted to do them. He meant wanting. He meant living.
-- Joan Didion, The Year of Magical Thinking --

Have a great Wednesday!

It is the saddest book, albeit brilliantly written.
Anyone should read it, before it is too late.

I hope you are having a truly magical day,

I totally agree with you Merisi and Amy.
This book was amazing. Sobering. So real.
Didion is writing in the deep end of the pool.
