Today's Menu

Today's Menu: Living to Tell the Tale by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Drinking: chai (my latest addiction)

Thinking: What a delicious thing to dip back into the deep, lyrical waters of Marquez' rendered world and prose. This first volume of his autobiography has all the magic, beauty, humor and enchantment of his finest novels. Each night I read five pages before drifting (at around 9pm) into a wonderful, watery, deep and majestic sleep. Thank you, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, for bringing my third-trimester sleep such murkiness, fantasia, mystery, light, drama, romance and levitation.

PS: Also, for filling my dreams with such stunning names: Tranquilina, Wenefrida, Francisca Simodosea...
