Untitled, by Kelly Schreiber

There, at the door, stood a couple. A woman and a man, looking slightly harassed. I stared at them.
"We need a closure," said the woman as a greeting.
"Yes," the man agreed. "We need the rest of the chapter."

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

Margaret Atwood's Newest Project Won't Be Seen For 100 Years 

the-library-and-step-on-it:

If you’re dying to see the next thing Margaret Atwood writes, well, you’re out of luck. Atwood will be the first contributor to The Future Library project, a work of public art conceived of by Scottish artist Katie Paterson. Here’s how it works: Paterson has planted a forest of 1,000 trees outside Oslo, and if everything goes as planned, every year for the next 100 years, one writer will add a new text to the collection. In 2114, the forest will be cut down to print the 100-book collection, so they can be read at last.

❝ Do you know, darling? When you became involved with others you quite possibly stepped down a level or two, but if you become involved with me, you will be throwing yourself into the abyss.

— Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena

Ten books that have stayed with me

Tagged by Anna 

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you.

1. “The History of Love,” by Nicole Krauss
2. “Love Begins in Winter,” by Simon Van Booy
3. “Nobody’s Baby But Mine,” by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
4. “Where Rainbows End,” by Cecelia Ahern
5. “The Little Prince,” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, trans. by Katherine Woods
6. “When Marnie Was There,” by Joan G. Robinson
7. “Centuries of Stories,” edited by Wendy Cooling
8. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” by J.K. Rowling (duh)
9. “My Sunshine,” by Catherine Anderson
10. “Blue-Eyed Devil,” by Lisa Kleypas

+ “The Two Towers,” by J.R.R. Tolkien (only because Éowyn first appeared here)
+ “Little Women,” by Louise May Alcott (hate the sequel though)
+ “Anne of Green Gables,” by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Rules: YOU CAN tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod / iPhone / iTunes / Media player and write down the first 10 songs then pass this onto 10 people. (My presence here on Tumblr has been sporadic so I honestly don’t know who’s done or who hasn’t done this yet.)

And here are the songs (shuffled on iTunes):

1. The Beatles, ”And I Love Her”
2. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, “Tiny Light”
3. Deathcab for Cutie, “Technicolor Girls”
4. Joanna Newsom, “Soft As Chalk”
5. Beyonce, “Blow”
6. Goldmund, “John Harrington”
7. Britney Spears, “Soda Pop”
8. Ramin Djawadi, “Wall of Ice”
9. Stacey Kent, “I’ve Got a Crush on You”
10. Explosions in the Sky, “First Breath After Coma”

❝ I think she was afraid to love sometimes. I think it scared her. She was the type to like things that are concrete, like the ocean. Something you could point to and know what it was… And I think that’s why she struggled with love. She couldn’t touch it. She couldn’t hold on to it and make sure it never changed.
