So…today’s post. Hmm. Hard time focusing on it with how busy work was today and a certain midnight movie release that I’ll be attending tonight/tomorrow morning. (I wonder if you can guess which one THAT is? ^_^)
…but I did manage to wrangle some time and my thoughts to bring you something new, something refreshing, something from gay olde Pariee…I mean, Paris. It’s a literary walk through the city of lights with a good helping of bookish goodness. Shall I reveal today’s title? Here goes. Today’s book of choice is….
This is a case of how one is captured by a book; for me, it was the title and the cover more so than the actual content. Allow me to explain. First, the title….who WOULDN’T want to experience that and when you find out it’s set in Paris, it’s almost a guarantee. They are known as the city of lights for a reason and their beautiful architecture speaks for itself. Second, let’s look at that cover. Every time I look at it I get lost in the waterways of the top image or imagine myself strolling down the lamp lit street below. The subtle use of color in both give them a warm glow, inviting the reader to take that first step on the pathway to greater things. Now about those “greater things”…I’d like to share a quick quote from the book if you please as it’s from the late great Mark Twain….
“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
