December 2022 Favorites

Hello! We are at the end of another month, and more importantly, another year. December was an eventful month. Winter slammed into us. States were affected by major snow storms. I saw a meme that accurately summed it up, saying: “Winter is coming. The entire thing. All at once. In one weekend.” The month feltContinue reading “December 2022 Favorites”

November 2022 Favorites

“Elon is crashing Twitter, Kanye is exposing the illuminati, Ghislaine is drafting her memoir, Trump is back to causing mayhem, and Biden still doesn’t know he’s been elected. The drama level is so high.” Jessica Kraus (@houseinhabit) That quote above basically sums it up. November felt like a short month with too much to do.Continue reading “November 2022 Favorites”

The Libraries

[Image via The University of Cambridge] Thinking of autumn reminds me of wandering libraries. I have wandered many. There was the large one in Gainesville with all of the movie/DVD shelves. I would browse, waiting for my computer ticket number to come up so I could check my email at one of their computers. ThereContinue reading “The Libraries”

October 2022 Favorites

[Kate Moss and Johnny Depp via Pinterest] Elon Musk tweeted, “The bird is freed.” Is it really? The Twitter deal is complete. (Insert Honey Badger laughter here– if you know, you know). The month felt like it went by fast. The nights are longer and darker. Winter is at our doorstep. This month was moreContinue reading “October 2022 Favorites”

My French Library

By: Gabriela Yareliz I lit my candles to get rid of the evidence in the air that I had been cooking and roasting potatoes all morning. To contextualize this post (I keep thinking of those in the future who may read this back if they are bored or looking for a good French read), theContinue reading “My French Library”

September 2022 Favorites

It’s officially autumn. What did I do this month? A lot. I bought a baseball bat, mostly because I was so sold by the Q&A on Amazon. One of the questions was: “Assuming the bat doesn’t function as expected, what’s the return policy for bloodstains?” The answer: “Depending on whose blood is on it, itContinue reading “September 2022 Favorites”

Jeanne Damas’ Library

By: Gabriela Yareliz When I wrote The Didion Estate, it was the first time I had put in writing my dissecting of another’s library. I do it all the time mentally, but it was fun to share it. So, as summer winds down and autumn calls, I figured it was time for another fun library.Continue reading “Jeanne Damas’ Library”

The Didion Estate

By: Gabriela Yareliz All Joan Didion fans know that her estate is going to auction in Hudson, NY. Architectural Digest quotes Lisa Thomas, a Stair Galleries fine art specialist, as saying that Didion’s apartment and her things, “It all just really told the story of who she was as a person, how she wrote, andContinue reading “The Didion Estate”

A Society of Cowards

By: Gabriela Yareliz A society of cowards. Perhaps most of the ills in society can be traced back to a spiritual crisis in which we have eliminated God and have placed ourselves alone on the universe’s stage. And then, in the midst of the anarchy, we grow afraid. We live in a society that cravesContinue reading “A Society of Cowards”

April 2022 Favorites

Hello fellow journeyers, Another month in the 2022 books. Chapter five starts tomorrow. This month was one of very early mornings (4 a.m. early), crazy train rides (shootings and all), skipped lunches (gonna work on that), and plenty of court time. Not only was I in court for my cases, but I have been engrossedContinue reading “April 2022 Favorites”
