Valentine’s Day.

I wanted to remind you/introduce you to the fabulous works of PABLO NERUDA. His poems are so sensual. You can almost taste and feel them.allureofbeautytitleedit

Full woman, fleshly apple, hot moon, thick smell of seaweed, crushed mud and light, what obscure brilliance opens between your columns? What ancient night does a man touch with his senses? Loving is a journey with water and with stars, with smothered air and abrupt storms of flour: loving is a clash of lightning-bolts and two bodies defeated by a single drop of honey. Kiss by kiss I move across your small infinity, your borders, your rivers, your tiny villages, and the genital fire transformed into delight runs through the narrow pathways of the blood until it plunges down, like a dark carnation, until it is and is no more than a flash in the night.

Pablo Neruda translated by Stephen Mitchell



Finally! After combing through various books about Bohemians, Bohemian Lifestyle, etc., I found this book which was just released recently. HOME SWEET HOME, Sumptuous and Bohemian Interiors by OBERTO GILI with an Introduction by Susanna Salk, published by RIZZOLI. ┬áThis book is fabulous! Mr. Gili’s photography invites you into homes and has you poring over each page, soaking in the ambiance of each abode. I sometime just sit and look at each picture and it has caused me to make adjustments to my own home to capture the feel that these dwellings have. From Bohemian Minimalism (which I never thought I would see the words Bohemian and Minimalism in the same sentence much less the same house) into Full Blown Bohemian, there is something everyone with even the smallest streak of Bohemian in them will like.
