Joan Didion, minimalist author of Play It As It Lays and A Book of Common Prayer. Writers and Their Advice
People with self-respect exhibit a certain toughness, a kind of moral nerve; they display what was once called "character," a quality which, although approved in the abstract, sometimes loses ground to other, more instantly negotiable virtues. Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self-respect springs. - Joan Didion
Joan Didion’s trailblazing nonfiction set a forbiddingly high standard, but a slew of idiosyncratic writers are proving that her example may be inimitable but it is also inspiring.
What Joan Didion Can Teach Us: "I have already lost touch with a couple of people I used to be," from 'On Keeping a Notebook.'
From Joan Didion to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, our readers have been sharing their favourite books by female authors. Ahead of International Women’s Day, here’s our celebration of life-changing, beautiful and inspiring stories by women.
Joan Didion, writer of painful truths, hilarious observations, and wicked-good sentences, turns 79 today. She has taught us about the pleasure that can be found in keeping a notebook and the mixed feelings that can be experienced when moving away fro...

"This mug of mine is as plain as a barn door. Why should people pay 35 cents to look at it?" ~ Spencer Tracy. ( You watch those old black and white movies and Tracy just takes you away. He had such a presence! I read a lot about him and I respect him for certain decisions he made and why he made them. He wasn't a pretty boy actor but he was something more, a man's man! Swag, hell yeah!
Spencer Tracy by Irving Penn - "This mug of mine is as plain as a barn door. Why should people pay 35 cents to look at it?" ~ Spencer Tracy
Spencer Tracy ‘Irving Penn (1917 – 2009) was an American photographer known for his portraiture and fashion photography. He was among the first photographers to pose subjects against a simple grey or white backdrop. Expanding his austere studio surroundings, Penn constructed a set of upright angled backdrops, to form a stark, acute corner.’

Manchester-based photographer Lee Jeffries is an accountant by profession but for the past few years he’s traveled around the world photographing people he encounters on the streets, particularly the homeless. He spends time getting to know each of his subjects before shooting them, which I think is completely evident in his work

Homeless man- Lee Jeffries. I really enjoy the fine details of this portrait. The dirt, wrinkles, and shaggy hair are apparent and enhance the intensity of this photo. Black and white sets the mood. The subject reminds me of the man on the cover of Jethro Tull's Aqualung.

Lee Jeffries is an accountant by profession but for the past few years he’s traveled around the world photographing people he encounters on the streets, particularly the homeless. He spends time getting to know each of his subjects before shooting them, which I think is completely evident in his work, as the stark portraits seem to suggest details of each individuals life, taking a hard unflinching look at their personal condition.

“I was tired of seeing the Graces always depicted as beautiful young things. I think wisdom (and beauty) comes with age and life and pain. And knowing what matters.” ― Louise Penny, "A Fatal Grace" (photo by Jojie F. Alcantara)
"Serene Beauty" by Jojie Alcantara. I find in her eyes, a gaze which is shy, beautiful, eloquent, and graceful.
Her eyes sparkling with hope and her lips pursuing sweet news.. By looking at this picture I one more time believe that beauty is the way you manifest from inside... Age with grace... Only manipulative people want face lift,fake nose.
others faces - old and wise and wistful © Jojie F. Alcantara Ever notice that often times the difference between beautiful eyes and ordinary ones is a smile. :)
