Photographs That Speak Volumes

Over the weekend, I hit a wall – in terms of writing and blogging. I was in Sausalito on Saturday, just enjoying the Indian Summer, and all of sudden, I realized I had nothing to talk about. I know this happens to most people striving to be creative.  Then I went home that night and watched 3 classic films and suddenly, I came to. More about that later.

Saturday Morning Interesting Reads Online

I get up at 5:30  every morning, no matter the day. I love the quiet, and the peacefulness, because it helps me think best and plan out my day and even reshuffle my life goals.  Then, I do some of my best writing here, there, and even a chapter for my next novel.

Laughing, or giggling like school girls, we decided to pass. I think the pressure of him taking our order would have made us spend too much 🙂 – Now that I think about it, we should have taken him up on his offer to simply sit  at curbside, and just be. So, this article, about the colorful storefronts of Paris is actually so very true.

Frank Lloyd Wright – Architecture Admired

One thing I do while travelling within the US, is see if I could detect which architect designed a building, a  house, or even a monumental structure of sorts. Mostly in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York,  I do lots of searching for that unique style – a structure or dwelling that stands out above the rest. In line with this topic, I found this interesting article about one of my favorite  – Frank Lloyd Wright – an illustrated guide to his work. Who’s your favorite architect?
