December 12, 2014 First of all, let's take a moment to acknowledge that I TOTALLY nailed that post title! Secondly, happy birthday to the author of Madame Bovary. To celebrate, let's meditate on one of my favorite quotes of all time by: "Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live." -Gustave Flaubert #gustaveflaubert #madamebovary #birthday #morningcoffeeatlukes

October 30, 2014 Happy Birthday, Ezra Pound! What says "birthday" more than a mugshot followed by some earnest poetry? The Tree I stood still and was a tree amid the wood, Knowing the truth of things unseen before; Of Daphne and the laurel bow And that god-feasting couple old that grew elm-oak amid the wold. 'Twas not until the gods had been Kindly entreated, and been brought within Unto the hearth of their heart's home That they might do this wonder thing; Nathless I have be
