We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same…

The Coffee: I saw Midnight in Paris¬†yesterday, and I must admit, this is a summer bucket list priority! Little did I know this Woody Allen creation would send me tumbling to¬†memories of my favorite artists, writers, and poets of the 1920’s and make me long to skip over to the nearest Museum and drool over Monets, Picassos and Degas’. The main premise of this story is yearning for a life more glamerous than your own. The protagonist, Owen Wilson, learns to accept his own reality as the best because you can’t keep living in a fantasy. Everyone has an idol, even your own idol. This week I try to channel this into my own life by getting being excited about the present I live in.

The Cream and Sugar: I am moving semi outside Boston in the fall. For once in 4 years, I will have my own room. Mind you, I am an only child, so 4 years wasn’t much to compromise after an entire lifetime of aloneness. I am especially excited for this new move because this is THE move from college living to *real* living. I’m throwing out the sticky wall tape, heading to Home Depot and buying some goddamn nails. I am also saying no to tapestries. First things first, I want pretty wall art.

While I would love a room like this…

 

 

 

 

 

I suppose I can settle for this gorgeous number…
