Quote of the Day

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, & hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new & different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security & adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning & its incredible beauty.” –Into the Wild

I plan on backpacking through Europe sometime — it’ll be a unique opportunity to experience the world in a brighter, purer way.  But until then, Chris McCandless inspires me daily.

Scientia Est Potentia

Books I recommend:

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

The reasons for this are numerous, but let’s go with Nabokov’s unforgettable prose for now.

The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

Beyond epic! I experienced every human emotion possible while reading this.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe

Ken Kesey’s adventures make for some interesting reading.  Could literally feel my mind expanding.

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (cover design, Heather Fulton)

Profound, provocative, haunting.  Esther’s narrative is like looking into my own brain.

The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley

If you’re at all curious about psychoactive substances, read this book! It’s very methodical & honest.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

It’s a classic for a reason.  The upcoming movie just gives me another reason to re-read it.

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

This book is life-changing.  It will alter & inspire.

Mere Christianity  by C.S. Lewis

Nothing but truth – it doesn’t get any better than this!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Basically, I am Charlie.  This book is my adolescence. I love everything about it.

And about ∞ more…

Isbjörnar och Troll

I love being Swedish! In honor of Luciadagen (St. Lucia Day), which is today, I’m sharing an old Scandinavian folk tale — East of the Sun, West of the Moon.  Dags att ha lussekatter, glögg, & risgrynsgröt!
