Musings on art, books, travel, writing
and finding your place in this world.


"We should choose our books as we

would our companions, for their sterling

and intrinsic merit."

– Charles Caleb Colton, Laçon


“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

― Gustave Flaubert


“August in Florida is God's way of reminding us
who's in charge.”

― Blaize Clement, Raining Cat Sitters and Dogs
