'Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.' Rita Mae Brown
3 cups Jeanette Winterson
2 cups Oriah Mountain Dreamer
1 cup Michael Ondaatje
1 cup Twyla Tharp
2 scoops Anne Lamott
1 tbsp Jane Kenyon
1 tbsp Carol Ann Duffy
a dash of Pema Chodron
a pinch of May Sarton
Blend together until smooth. Serve over ice, with a long curly straw and a comfortable sofa.
Sounds like the perfect book smoothie indeed!
LOVE IT! And writing that quote in big black marker on my windowshade as I sit here reading feeds instead of working!
mmmmmmmmmmm, make mine heavy on the Lamott
And it is healthy and low cal !!!!! I’ll take one !
I have some ingredients to locate! Yum!
Ondaatje just gave a talk at a small fundraising party here in TO and he says that his books always start with moments—a girl, a horse, a farm; a boy walking through a field eating rhubarb; a nurse and a patient and sometimes that moment doesn’t happen until the middle of the book. He also said that he, too, misses his characters. oh- and that prose allows him to fill in the story more than poetry does ( although, gosh, his prose is so lyrical!)
I’d like mine with Anne Morrow Lindbergh sprinkles.
Yum. And don’t forget to sprinkle a little Rita Mae Brown on top for that special je ne sais quoi!
what fun! delish!
oh my gosh. i want this for breakfast, lunch dinner. second breakfast… midnight snack. . . !
Must try that recipe!
Sounds like the perfect mix :-)
i remember hearing rita mae brown read years ago at uvm — i’d read her book rubyfruit jungle that past summer — ira allen chapel was packed and one of the things she said that i always remember is “if you are a writer, work with your hands because it frees your mind.”
you are beyond cute! Don’t recognize some of those names, but I love the quote and the pic.
And never hope more than you work….
Yes! Just finished Anne Lamott–and starting Twyla Tharp. Wonderful when books can be both grounding and inspirational.
