alone to a quiet supper

"a girl in the convertible is worth five in the phone book."
- mae west (american actress and sex symbol, 1892-1980)

can a biography ever have enough photographs?
during my commute to and from work - mostly "from", granted, since my "to" takes
place in total darkness - i read.
the book-of-the-moment is a reprint of "goddess" by anthony summers, his tale of
marilyn monroe's final years. i am captivated, but i find myself craving images.
bless youtube. i discover this bit of brilliance, and this, and this, and this:
wish, granted.
i have - magic! - pictures to enhance the words.


  1. Ah, Books. I'm not getting round to reading just now. Cannot find the time. Shame. But then you cannot do it all. I commute as well, but I work in the train, it makes it slightly livable.

  2. This, incidentally, is the Haunted Bookshop - and that window is pure magic :)

  3. i am lost in her beauty ~ thanks for the fantastic links and your beautiful photo :)

  4. Wonderful links, Lynn! I tend to forget that almost anything can be found on you-tube.
    And, o, the magic of books and bookshops!

  5. my concentration stops me reading much these days but I understand where yu are coming from Lynn.
