Another Great One Lost.

" much as anything else, it was the stare, not so paradoxically, of a privacy-lover who, once his privacy has been invaded, doesn't quite approve when the invader just gets up and leaves, one-two-three, like that." (Franny & Zooey)

There's something terribly sad about realizing that the last of your favorite authors has died. The man who firmly sat in your top three, the one you knew you could always come back to. To return to Salinger after months, or years, rereading passages of your favorite book always felt as though you were returning to a best friend you hadn't seen in ages. Thank you for being there through the wonderful and terrible times Mr. Salinger.

Starting To Feel Like Home.

Everything's been a bit all over the place since i've been back. Sometimes i forget about what it takes to re-settle into a place, the problem is, i'm off to Paris tomorrow, so there hasn't really been any sort of settling at all. It's nice to be back in London. It's starting to feel like home.

Little Brother, Big Sister.

When left to our own devices in an empty house with a brand new chalk board wall there is only one thing a brother sister duo can do. They draw. They draw as old records are played and pictures are snapped so that the moment can last forever. Time frozen so that years from now when this brother sister duo don't live under the same roof for certain periods of time, it can all still be remembered.
