Fragments by Richard Schickel is a rare opportunity to see into the unconscious psyche of America’s sex symbol…a collections of notes, doodles, poems, letters…this work attempts to capture Marilyn not as we would have seen her, but as she saw herself…it is amazing. I high recommend it…and images of the actual handwritten scrawls are included…beautifully compelling!
I am so thankful to the friend who knew me well enough to gift this to me…thank you Jess’…xxx c
So…after a debauched firmware update…my Nook was caput! So I called B&N and they sent me a new one FREE! Which I received in 2 days! Oh joy…back to my bibliophile ways!!!
I just finished the start of a new vampy suspense series by Christopher Buecheler, The Blood That Bonds. I originally picked it up because it was FREE on Nook…still it had solid reviews and since i read at least one or two books a week I thought it was a good gamble…and it was. While the actual technical writing is only fair, the author does a great job of creating characters that you really care about and then creating a backdrop and plotline that send you on an emotional ride…definitely a cliff hanger ending…but if you are in the mood for a quick read with a kick ass main character and a world where vamps abound…give this one a shot! xxx c
Skull Here comes the water Death, a skeleton, *This probably refers to the skulls and skeletons that are made to decorate the alters for the dead. Here’s the original version in Spanish… Calavera Ahi viene el agua La muerte calaca, —Unknown Mexican Poet
Down the slope,
And my skull
Is getting wet.
Neither fat, nor skinny.
A homemade skeleton,
Stuck together with wax.*
Por la ladera,
Y se me moja
Ni gorda, ni flaca.
La muerte casera,
Pegada con cera.
Here comes the water
Death, a skeleton,
*This probably refers to the skulls and skeletons that are made to decorate the alters for the dead.
Here’s the original version in Spanish…
Ahi viene el agua
La muerte calaca,
—Unknown Mexican Poet

His voice dropped, nearly to a whisper, and his arms tightened around me.
