Time to read:
“Why they came East I don’t know. They had spent a year in France for no particular reason, and then drifted here and there unrestfully wherever people played polo and were rich together.” —The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
Time for friends, for gathering:
And festivities–time to celebrate, get messy, laugh, be creative:
Time for new friends, and new beginnings, for soul-satisfying discussions and long runs through tree-filled canyons. For the crisp air and crunchy, fire-colored leaves. Time for nourishment:
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had the familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” (Also Gatsby)
[Just like that, but with Autumn]
Do you know how much I love Gatsby?! Well, now you do.
Also know how much I have enjoyed spending more time with you. xoxo
I enjoy both of those things, as well! Did you know there’s a new Gatsby movie coming out? Also, when is Now & Then November happening? I’m having Ladies’ Movie Night withdrawals already.
Yes! Could be interesting with Leo DiCap as Gatsby, but I’m excited nonetheless. I’ll send out an email about November’s lady date and see what everyone thinks.
Never read Gatsby , but it’s nice to see you with newness and fresh starts on your mind.
I had Anne Shirley in my head today saying that “tomorrow is always a new day with no mistakes in it – yet …” but I was arguing with her 😉
That’s right–argue back! And when that fails, try baking. Or running.
