    "quite simply, I was in love with New York. I do not mean “love” in any colloquial way, I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again."

    I read a book recently- The Light Between Oceans- and it was… incredible. I was finishing it as I was waiting for the MARTA train to take me to my neighborhood from the Atlanta airport. It was a bit past midnight and my flight back from New York had just landed. I was tired and stressed and kind of overwhelmed and I was very much struggling to not be the girl weeping into her kindle. That was almost two weeks ago and I have thought about the story a lot since then. I very much recommend that you read Jaclyn’s review as it puts into words the journey the novel takes you on better than I can. It is set in rural Australia after World War I and I didn’t think I would be able to connect with it, but as happens often enough- I was wrong. I think my favorite thing about this book is that the reader cannot easily decide who is “right” and who is “wrong.” Those notions become fluid and complicated and messy.

    So. You should read this book. But also: today I was thinking to myself “I feel like I’ve heard that it’s going to be a movie.” And I do what any curious person does and I google. Less than 2 seconds later, I get the second-best* news of my day. Yes, it is being written as a movie, BUT even better- the director of The Place Beyond the Pines** is directing it (Derek Cianfrance apparently also directed Blue Valentine but I have yet to see it because, you know, too much heartbreak). AND my #1 celeb crush Michael Fassbender*** has been cast as the main character (helllloooo Tom Sherbourne)! So, it was a very happy Thursday for me.

    *best news of my day will be made public pretty soon. It is major and life-changing and scary and surreal and amazing. So- stay tuned!

    **this movie was one of the very best I saw last year. Ryan Gosling was amazing in it and the story is well-developed and riveting. This is not a happy film but it is intense and compelling and I recommend it (especially for a rainy afternoon).

    ***if this picture was set as the background on my phone, I would never get anything productive done. that’s all.

    "…Listen, a person is like a rubber band ball. We’ve all got a lot of bad rubber bands, and a lot of good rubber bands, and they’re all wrapped up together. And you’ve got to have both types of bands or your rubber band ball ain’t gonna bounce. And no use trying to untangle them. You know what I’m saying?”
