Rest in peace, Gabriel García Márquez. (via theatlantic)

I read Love in the Time of Cholera when I was 16, it meant so much to me then and still resonates 16 years later. Thank you Mr. Marquez, RIP.

Chance to win a really awesome book that I’m working on (ends in 10 days). The author starts the book talking about Guardians of the Galaxy, seriously.

Decided on a whim that since Andrea was home from work when it was still light out that we’d see if the tennis courts were free on a cool night - they were and we played an hour into dark. Just a few blocks towards the waterfront, with Manhattan in the background, it was a great idea.  (at Tennis Courts at Van Voorhees Park)

Yeah, I said it.

You’re not alone, from the countless similar opinions I’ve picked up on it. Have yet to hear from someone who did like it. Meanwhile, it’s been on my Kindle and won a Pulitzer, but that’s not enough to get me to read it yet.
