| #myphotography #mythoughts | . ❗️We all get those days where we feel utterly unimportant, useless, and unmotivated. We’re left asking ourselves why am I even here? What’s my purpose? When will I get my act together?
-
That day is today for me. I don’t know how to get out of this funk. I don’t know how to rewire my mindset to not think like that, because I know it all has to do with timing, and patience. I’m here for a reason, and I may not know that reason right now, or tomorrow or by the end of the week, but I will one day. There are so many things I want to do and accomplish, I just need to be patient and actually work on the process to achieve that goal; we all do.
-
Don’t look at what other people are doing, what they’re achieving, how they’re handling their business, etc—they’re all going according to their own pace. Don’t try to compare yourself to anyone. You will get there too, on your own time. So will I.
I know posting a caption as such is easy to say whatever, and then not take your own advice, but I need to keep reminding myself of this. To not worry and cause unnecessary stress.
To just breathe and do my own thing ♡
I hope you have a great day 💫

Try this exercise: The next person in your day that your day that you communicate with, be it a family member, colleague, or even someone that you don't know, clean the slate and truly see and hear them as if you knew that this was an important moment in your life (because it is and it's all we've got so we may as well not skip it). 🙏🏼 #mondaymantra #qotd #johnsteinbeck #beherenow #namaste

Pour ce soir, je Vous poste mes livres de John Steinbeck. J'en ai cinq, je ne connais pas "La perle", dernier livre acquis de cet écrivain.
J'apprécie l'intensité des moments et la complexité des situations dans les œuvres de Steinbeck, j'aime cet auteur malgré la violence souvent présente, j'aime son style d'écriture puissant dans la narration ❤️
Bonne soirée Vous ! 🤗🌌📚#johnsteinbeck#bibliophile#livrestagram#folioeditions#bookstagram#livreaddict#bookaddict#lectrice#jaimelire#jelis#mabibliotheque#bibliothequestagram#lelivredepocheeditions

I had grand plans yesterday to dive into this classic, but my plans were thwarted by a little thing called Disney+.
.
I signed up for a free trial to watch the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, but then I fell into all of the old Disney animated classics I haven't seen in years. So...yeah. That's how I spent a big chunk of my Sunday.
.
Anyway, I'm grateful today for good old classics. Classic Disney movies, yeah, but also just classic literature.  I'm still on the fence about East of Eden, so stay tuned for my full thoughts, but it's fun to dive into something like this as a change from my usual reading.
.
Did you read this in a high school or college English class? What was your take on it?

You'll fall in love with this book!

Love a great road trip tale? Always dreamed of seeing America? Then you'll enjoy this adventurous travelogue, "Chasing Charley", written by Fairfield HamletHub Editor and local writer/photographer Mike Lauterborn!

TO PURCHASE:
https://www.authorhouse.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/787404-Chasing-Charley

In 1960, John Steinbeck (Grapes of Wrath) traveled around the United States with his dog, Charley, aiming to rediscover the country he had last roamed as a young man. His trip resulted in "Travels with Charley", a best-seller and classic American road novel.

In 2003, Mike Lauterborn set off by van to follow Steinbeck's path, to both learn about the author and see how America and Americans had changed in the intervening forty-plus years. Over 66 days, through 35 states and four provinces of Canada, and along 16,000 miles of road, Mike encountered some of the people and places Steinbeck had while taking in new sights and experiences, using Steinbeck's book as his guide. Mike had similar hardships -- vehicle troubles, adverse weather, solitude, health woes. He had up-close looks at some of America's most enduring landmarks: broad rivers, rugged coastlines, azure-blue volcanic lakes, barren deserts, quaint small towns and sprawling cities. He met people from all walks of life and was struck by their common resilience, work ethic and patriotism. Ultimately, he was impressed by the scope of the journey Steinbeck had undertaken. This book is a tribute to the author's tireless pursuit of the noble quest.
Pub. Nov. 2018, Softcover, B&W, 375 pgs., 6x9, ISBN: 9781546267751

Dal Corriere della Sera / Roma
Grazie a ©️Emilia Costantini per la preziosa intervista... prima della “prima” 🎭✨ Al seguente link l’articolo completo:
https://www.google.it/amp/s/roma.corriere.it/notizie/cultura_e_spettacoli/19_novembre_18/massimo-popolizio-io-ribelle-scena-furore-089d379c-0955-11ea-b74a-83e463a73bb9_amp.html (...) Dai «Ragazzi di vita» di Pasolini a «Furore» di Steinbeck, Popolizio prosegue il suo percorso rivolgendosi soprattutto ai giovani: «Sì, perché anche questo è un libro rivoluzionario per la tematica che affronta. Ma attenzione: il seme del furore è anche positivo, può servire a far cambiare la situazione stagnante dell’attualità. Furore significa ribellarsi contro la depressione, contro una realtà che non va bene». #massimopopolizio

Pictured with my breakfast, because this book made me SO HUNGRY. I ate like 3 dinners last night while I was finishing it.
My favorite parts were the short chapters with the zoomed-out perspective. But it would have been exhausting to read just that, so I liked how they were sprinkled in the larger narrative.
I would love to learn more about this time period. Were most Okies’ lives really like this? How and when did labor laws change? Any suggestions for further reading are welcome!

Il Dio nel romanzo di Steinbeck è un Dio che cerchiamo tutti, assente e per questo tanto presente, sconosciuto e per questo tanto importante. Joseph Wayne fu il primo della sua famiglia ad emigrare dal Vermont in una ricca vallata della California, in cerca di una terra migliore in cui stabilirsi. Dopo un periodo di prosperità, si affaccia tra le colline verdi di alberi e di distese rigogliose, il mostro della siccità. La famiglia cade lentamente in rovina, il pascolo viene decimato e il contadino, Joseph, viene prosciugato come la terra della sua fattoria. Nelle pagine appare subito evidente una continuata trasformazione, quella di Joseph, che diventa un indecifrabile sacerdote-colono, in un quadro primitivistico-pagano.. Nelle ultime fasi del romanzo Steinbeck dona alle parole una dimensione mistica e Joseph, che ha sviluppato una percezione religiosa-naturalistica, compie un sacrificio estremo. A quel punto, finalmente, inizia a piovere. Il titolo è una citazione degli atti degli apostoli là dove San Paolo va ad Atene per convertire gli ateniesi, e avendo notato che la città ha eretto un'ara per ciascun dio conosciuto e perfino un'ara dedicata "a un Dio sconosciuto", inizia la sua orazione nell'Areopago ateniese dicendo appunto: "Ho trovato un'ara con l'iscrizione 'al Dio sconosciuto'. Colui che voi adorate senza conoscere, io ve l'annunzio. Un libro che consiglio senza ombra di dubbio, gustatene ogni parola!

BOOK HAUL
.
This weekend was the 5th Cultural Exchange event. It’s the first time I attend and I found some great books for me and my kids. The way it works is you can take your books you want to trade and you get event credits which you can use to take books at the exhibition tables, or you can just buy directly any book you want. Book prices range from $1.50 to $2.65 which is great for used books, although condition varies a lot.
.
Here is what I got:
.
Four Past Midnight - Stephen King
Old Gringo - Carlos Fuentes
The Adventures and Memoires of Sherlock Holmes - A. Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories Vol 2 - A. Conan Doyle
The Winds of Change - Isaac Asimov
The Great SF Stories - ed. Isaac Asimov
The Westing Game - Ellen Raskin
The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck
.
Not bad right? The condition of the SK hardcover is really good. I wish the Sherlock Holmes books would’ve been in a bit better shape but I guess I can live with them.
.
This is only what I got for me. I managed to get my kids some books too: Wimpy Kid, Captain Underpants and more!
.
All in all I found some great titles that just made my TBR list bigger than it already was 😅. Great event! Looking forward to next year!

"A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east." - John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

“Tom, the third son, was most like his father. He was born in fury and he lived in lightning. Tom came headlong into life. He was giant in joy and enthusiasms. He didn’t discover the world and its people, he created them. When he read his father’s books, he was the first. He lived in a world shining and fresh and as uninspected as Eden on the sixth day. His mind plunged like a colt in a happy pasture, and when later the world put up fences he plunged against the wire, and when the final stockade surrounded him he plunged right through it and out. And as he was capable of a giant joy, so did he harbor huge sorrow, so that when his dog died the world ended,” (Steinbeck, 39) #eastofeden #johnsteinbeck #americanliterature

ℝ𝕖𝕡 𝕡𝕠𝕤𝕥: Book reveal! Contains spoilers!
This is my unwrapping of my November Parcel from @novelteabookclub - this is my last month as a rep for Angie and such a lovely note to end on. This parcel was beautiful, and with the theme of friendship, every item was carefully thought out. It included friendship tea by the amazing @artofteatasmania and a copy of Mice and Men (which never fails to make me cry 😢). The rest of the package was filled with gift cards, a beautiful bookmark and the CUTEST little hearts from @1000_hearts - I’ve posted an earlier post about that loveliness! .
. 🌿.
Angie’s book parcels are so charming and considered. If you are wanting a gift for Christmas, this would be perfect. I love representing small Australian businesses and have really enjoyed showcasing such lovely wares and collaborations. My code is Lost10

[Book review time x2!!]
This time I'm talking about two books I have finished just recently!
📚 In my never ending quest to read more French I followed my brother's recommendation and read Chanson Douce [Lullaby/The Nanny] by Leïla Slimani. It is a thriller, technically, but it didn't feel like one. It feels much more like a social portrait of a young, middle class family and their nanny. As the narrative goes on, the focus shifts from the young parents (especially the mother) to the nanny, Louise, and her living circumstances, her background and how the family she works for becomes her sole purpose in life. It is an extremely interesting portrait but even more so I was moved by the perspective of the mother who starts out as a lawyer-come-stay-at-home-mum. And she doesn't like staying at home. So against basically everyone around her, including her husband, she gets a nanny and sets her family up for tragedy. Just because she still wanted to forfill her dreams after having children, something her husband never had to give a second thought to. It hits very close to home.
📚Tortilla Flat I got from my mum who read it in 1970 in high school. Such a cool way to get a book, don't you think? It's about Danny and his group of friends, who are living in Tortilla Flat, a poor district of Monterey, California. I admit it took me a while to warm up to them as they are so different from the proper and clean characters I usually read 😂 But once I got there I did like the book a lot! I liked the description of companionship and friendship and also being able to read about surroundings that I am absolutely unfamiliar with. As my venture into American literature continues, I think Steinbeck while come up many more times and I'm not opposing that at all. .

Finishing the school year with my Year 10’s reading Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. These students are so intelligent and avid readers so it’s great that they are engaging with literary works 📖 I’ve actually never read this one before and am surprised by how much I’m enjoying it! We’ve done a bit of reading together as a class and I love hearing the students’ reactions (especially to Lennie who they love). Am looking forward to one last critical analysis of a text for the year 😂

I tried reading this about a year ago and stopped after 50 or so pages in. I hope I can actually finish it this time.

Coffee; lunch; and The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck. So far a slow read, but it seems to promise some excitement and controversy.

Herkese mutlu haftalaaar🙋‍♀️ Gazap Üzümleri çoğunuzun okuduğu bir eser sanıyorum değilse de en kısa zamanda olmalı bence.
Büyük buhran döneminde makineleşmeye beraber küçük toprak sahiplerinin topraklarını kaybedip Kaliforniya’ya göç etmek zorunda kalmaları, bu süreçte kadınların özellikle annelerin büyük fedakarlıklar ile kritik kararlar alması ve diğerlerinin ailenin dağılmasını önlemek için bu kararları yerine getirmesi, umut ve sonuna kadar hayatta kalma mücadelesi derinlemesine içinize işliyor bu eserde.

Будь благодарен ⠀

Роман "Гроздья гнева" я прочел в необычный период своей жизни - когда проходил службу в Севастополе от военной кафедры. По плану я должен был побывать на выпускном и уехать через пару дней, но меня забрали за день до этого (Света расстроилась сильнее меня, ведь с универом у нас связана куча воспоминаний, а поставить точку в этой главе нам пришлось порознь). ⠀

На время службы (а это, к счастью, немногим больше месяца) я взял с собой одну книгу на английском и одну на русском. Этого оказалось ничтожно мало, но мне повезло, что во взводе было еще трое читающих парней, с которыми мы устроили импровизированный книгообмен на время службы. Но это было уже ближе к концу срока, до этого я успел прочесть «Гроздья гнева» дважды. Когда я вернулся, сразу посоветовал ее Свете. В результате, для нас обоих эта книга стала знаковой, мы без сомнений рекомендуем ее к прочтению. ⠀

Действие романа происходит во времена Великой депрессии. В центре повествования находится семья Джоудов, которые, как и тысячи других семей, вынуждены покинуть землю своих предков и отправиться на поиски лучшей жизни. Джоуды кочуют с места на место, ищут работу и способы выжить. Внутри семьи, насчитывающей больше 12 ртов, все тоже далеко от идеала: их преследуют разочарования, голод, бедность, предательства. Удастся ли им выйти из такого положения? В каком составе? Помогут ли им в беде и помогут ли они своим «конкурентам» в борьбе за хорошую жизнь? ⠀

Прочел я последний абзац и понял, что вряд ли кто соблазнится читать такое потому, что это слишком про жизнь. Это слишком про нас с вами. И читать роман будет действительно нелегко от того, насколько реалистичны описанные ситуации: мелкие фермеры не в состоянии оплатить уборку урожая, поэтому он гниёт. Фрукты выбрасывают, поливают керосином и сжигают, ибо кто будет за них платить, если можно взять бесплатно? Урожай уничтожается, пока люди умирают от голода. ⠀

Читать эту книгу стоит хотя бы потому, что после каждой страницы испытываешь неподдельную благодарность за свою жизнь и все те привилегии и блага, которыми мы бессознательно пользуемся каждый день.
А какие книги у вас вызывают чувство благодарности за свою жизнь?
