It was a quiet one for me but I was able to work a bit in my studio, take care of some errands and start a couple of new books. I know, I said I wanted to focus on finishing some books but the lure of a new story is too much sometimes.
So I dove into some poetry by Langston Hughes. Oh my goodness, why have I never read more than one or two of his poems? Some have been incredibly moving and others make me want to read them out loud, fast and loud. They make me feel like they are meant to be performed. Like this one for example:
“Love is like whiskey,
Love is like red, red wine.
Love is like whiskey,
Like sweet red wine.
If you want to be happy
You got to love all the time.”
From Lament Over Love
And, for something completely different I picked up The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. What a juicy read. I feel like I’m reading a telenovela as the story is filled with secrets, affairs, fake smiles and grudges. Oh so scandalous and readable.
