Born lucky

I think there's a lot of truth to that (I can see how most things in my life are the result of my actions), but I still wonder how much pure luck really does come into it.
What a great quote!
And I love his novels, thanks for posting.

hello lovely. today a friend sent me a little gem of a poem that I want to pass on to you:

Artichoke
Joseph Hutchison

O heart weighed down by so many wings.

Re: quote

That's beautiful, I love it! It makes me think about the humble (and I always thought rather ugly) fat little artichoke in an almost romantic light.

Thank you! xo
