Vintage Photography: Camille Claudel (1864-1943) -- Young Artist, sculpted hands for Rodin who took credit -- he was established and got what he wanted. She ruined all her work, after losing her mind from Betrayal. She is the Story of Thousands of Artists. Mostly females. The movie is brilliant, it's a dynamic that exists to this day. Not as easily today, w/devices in hand ...

Robert Graves gave a series of lectures at Oxford in 1965 and it was there that I first met him. Best known today perhaps as author of 'I Claudius', Robert Graves is a wonderful poet and has written some of the finest love poems in the English language. He was accompanied in Oxford that year by three stunningly beautiful young women with long flowing, Pre-Raphaelite hair. I have no idea if these beautiful girls were his daughters or his lovers - somehow it did not seem to matter either way

The Night Circus (novel, book jacket, art, illustration, photography, publishing)
This 2014 Man Booker Prize winning tale of love and war could have broad appeal, but the protracted particulars of the prisoners’ treatment may put off quite a few readers. Evans performs at one point a major medical procedure under such primitive and inhuman conditions that it will make even tough-minded readers cringe in disgust. Though much of this fine novel (whose title is taken from the Japanese poet Basho) is extraordinarily beautiful, intelligent, and sharply insightful...

The narrow road to the deep north : a novel - "A novel of love and war that traces the life of one man--an Australian surgeon--from a prisoner-of-war camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway during World War II, up to the present"
It took Richard Flanagan 12 years to write The Narrow Road to the Deep North — and it shows. The book has some of the most beautiful writing and plotting I've ever read. During World War II, Australian doctor Dorrigo Evans finds himself leading a few hundred inmates in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in then-Burma, building what would come to be known as the Death Railway. **

After Dark by Haruki Murakami: A short, sleek novel of encounters set in Tokyo during the witching hours between midnight and dawn. After Dark moves from mesmerizing drama to metaphysical speculation, interweaving time and space as well as memory and perspective into a seamless exploration of human agency—the interplay between self-expression and empathy, between the power of observation and the scope of compassion and love.

loveyourpoetry: “All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.” - Ernest Hemingway
Quote: 'The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed' ~ Ernest Hemingway ~

Little Black Sambo . Was one of the bedtime stories my mother used to read to me.
little black sambo/images | Little Black Sambo Book
Little Black Sambo/ Sambo is a South Indian boy who lives with his father and mother, named Black Jumbo and Black Mumbo, respectively. Sambo encounters four hungry tigers, and surrenders his colourful new clothes, shoes, and umbrella so they will not eat him. The tigers are vain and each thinks he is better dressed than the others. They chase each other around a tree until they are reduced to a pool of melted butter. I remember them running round and round the tree!!
Little Black Sambo - no way! This was my VERY FAVORITE story!!!!!

The Equator runs across these highlands, a hundred miles to the North, and the farm lay at an altitude of over six thousand feet. In the daytime you felt that you had got high up, near to the sun, but the early mornings and evenings were limpid and restful, and the nights were cold.'from Out of Africa, chapter 1 (Photo: thedandelionchronicles-denmark.) dabacahin.tumblr

Life of Pi, by Yann Martel Possessing encyclopedia-like intelligence, unusual zookeeper’s son Pi Patel sets sail for America, but when the ship sinks, he escapes on a life boat and is lost at sea with a dwindling number of animals until only he and a hungry Bengal tiger remain.
