Bear Suits & Butterflies.

Gorey with a teddy, Sontag in a bear suit, Nabokov chasing butterflies: Emily Temple's Flavorwire slideshow, "Extremely Silly Photos of Extremely Serious Writers," is chock-full of gems. Click through to see the full post, which includes a priceless snap of Hemingway doing a high kick.


In other news, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day! Mine was delightful, though of course it felt too short - tonight, I'll be getting on a plane and heading back to New York. Saying goodbye to family is always hard, but I'm hoping to be back soon for another visit - after all, I have to make it to all of the amazing restaurants and shops you recommended! Photos to come later this week!

Oh those bear suits - they say it's good to wear during winter. :)

I agree with you on saying goodbye to family. Always makes you wish to have more time and more time and more time with them.

I totally know the feeling, when it comes to leaving family--saying goodbye to my sister after a weekend/trip never get easier.

I hope you enjoyed your time, though, and I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip!

Shoko, these are SO great! I followed the link and especially loved the one of Hemingway, Vonnegut & Mark Twain! (but really, I loved them ALL). I know how hard it is to part with family and I hope you will get to go back very soon! Wishing you a smooth flight home!! (you're probably on the plane as I'm writing these words :))
