Book rec: Girl At War by Sara Nović.

Some books (arguably, the best books) pluck you out of your life and put you right into someone else’s experience, someone else’s place and time and life, and through it, you are able to feel and understand something you never had before. This is one of those books.

I started the audio version on my last day of driving home from California; I had reached Wyoming but still had hours ahead of me and my truck was acting up and I was tired and didn’t want to drive anymore but I really didn’t want to stop. I got a giant Coke for energy (with each sip, I felt tiny hand cranks steadily rolling up my eyelids and tiny syringes stabbing life-force into my heart, Pulp Fiction style; I rarely drink pop so it has this effect on me) and turned on this book and everything changed. I was transfixed. At one point, sobbing hysterically (it being Wyoming, I was the only person on the highway and could safely sob while driving). And I actually – impossibly! – felt a little bummed out when I reached home because I didn’t want to stop listening to this book.

I don’t want to share the plot (two hints: the Croatian genocide + really good technique of moving though time); I’m sure many a summary may be found online. Or just read the book!

And here’s a video of a coyote in San Francisco – playing with a toy just like Charlie!

It’s been a while since I shared an artist whose work I love. This painting, by Diana Tremaine, was inspired by Charlie. I’m obsessed with it.

You can see Diana’s portfolio site HERE. Her style is just so good.

I LOVE HIS WORK!

In other news… names! Oh my goodness, names. I have compiled a short-list and will be reading them to the calf and Fiona and we shall decide this weekend.

Why haven’t I named the calf already? Your name suggestions were too good to make the decision easy and this week was bonkers busy – in less than a fortnight, I will be launching a Kickstarter! I am SO EXCITED. More on that soon – stay tuned…….

Fav Artist Friday: Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego

This is another print I have and love.
I bought it because, to me, it’s a portrait of Charlie.
See the halo? And the fangy smile? And the pointy ears? Charlie!

He creates great murals, too.

Fav Artist Friday: Stephanie Buer

A photo posted by Stephanie Buer (@stephanie_buer) on

Stephanie Buer is one of my favorite artists – I have this print. I loooove this print.
The original is not a photograph, it’s a painting.

Some people live in the city and have nature on their wall; I live in the country and have urban graffiti on my wall.

You can see more of her awesome work on her portfolio site, HERE.

I think I’ll share links to some of my favorite artists each Friday. What are some of yours?
