“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”

―Rainer Maria Rilke

AROUND THE WEB

I adore seeing what writers have written beyond their novels, especially there personal things. These greats have all written letter’s to their moms. When’s the last time you wrote a letter?

I’m needing a break from home, but sometimes getting out or going on a trip isn’t realistic. You’ll find me working through this list for staycation reset ideas. What would you add to this list?

While I’m at it, let’s bake something tasty! I’m thinking this tasty lemon sour cream bundt cake would be a great treat to cook up with my daughter who loves to bake!

NPR has completely sold me on reading Exhalation. “To read the first kind of book is to walk behind a madman spilling diamonds from a hole in his pocket. To read the second is like contemplating eternity at the bar with a friend you've known forever. And to read Ted Chiang is to do both at the same time.”

I’ll never not love a woman who goes against the grain and leaves her mark on history. A study of writer, Kathy Acker, and while her books are not really my thing, I admire her greatly. Have you read anything by her?

In exploring and sharing more poetry, this is such a great article that discusses poetry that ends with questions.

Alisa has a super cozy lifestyle feed that I really just want to crawl into and talk books for hours.

This adorable indie bookstore has a great feed, and we love shops that inspire us regularly. If you’re in Brooklyn stop by for us!

A good moody literary lifestyle will always be in, plus, we’re a little envious of the cool places Ariel visits!

WHAT WE’RE READING

Michaela - I've been stealing away time to continue reading A Brightness Long Ago, and it's so good.

Rikki - You guys, Anne of Green Gables is truly as magnificent a book as I've ever heard. I find myself laughing alongside all of Anne's troubles and revering in her love of nature and life.
