I D E A

by Gilda Davidian

I thought this quote from Roland Barthes was a fitting way to wrap up this Valentine’s week. Here are some of my favorite love-related posts from around the interweb that made my eyes twinkle a bit:

– A letter written in 1937 by Ansel Adams for his best friend Cedric Wright after Adams had recuperated from a nervous breakdown: LINK (Thanks, Joanna!)

– This David Foster Wallace quote from Good Old Neon in Oblivion: LINK

– What I Did For Love, episode 457 of This American Life: LINK (particularly Act One, Best Laid Plans)

Have a lovely weekend, friends!

 

P.S. I just finished “The Marriage Plot” by Jeffrey Eugenides, which was a great story and a wonderful read. As Michael Silverblatt said on Bookworm, “If you like to read, you will like to read this novel.”
