Now that the stores are full on Christmas…as well as TV channels…
To Read: Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. I thought this was an interesting love story- not without fault, but a slightly different twist on love and fate.
To See: Beautiful Boy- movie in theaters. This is a tough movie for parents as it deals with a teen sinking into the depths of addiction, but I thought it was well done. Apparently the book written by David Sheff is even better
To Listen: I put this weeks playlist on shuffle and these are the first five things that came up:
- La Boeuf sur la Toit Op. 58 Milhaude- beautiful piece
- Nine Inch Nail- Ahead of ourselves
- USA for Africa- We Are the World
- Madonna (Timberlake) 4 Minutes
- Rufus Wainwright- Going to a Town
To Read: Living Forever Chic: Frenchwomen’s Timeless Secrets for Everyday Elegance by Tish Jett. I sort of love these lifestyle books. I’m going to do a blog about this for anyone interested in what I learned and what I interpreted from this
To Do: New York Botanic Garden- Kiku- There are Japanese chrysanthemum that only bloom for about two weeks a year, which happens to be now. Spectacular. I will be doing a picture blog this week about them.
To go to: Morgan Library: It’s Alive! Frankenstein at 200. Fantastic exhibit if you are a fan of Frankenstein and the genre it’s created. This book is especially timely in todays environment, and the movies are just fun.
And that wraps up my week!
