Henry Miller hanging round the toilet


In my bathroom I have a copy of Henry Miller's The Colossus of Maroussi sitting around.
I have been reading the first sentence several hundred times lately.

I would never have gone to Greece had it not been for a girl named Betty Ryan who lived in the same house with me in Paris.


I like thinking about the way the world works.
How life unfolds.
I also would have never have gone to Greece had it not been for a compulsive liar yet interesting boy I knew when I was in college.

There are so many I would never have________ had it not been for__________ in our lives.

Who's yr Betty Ryan?

I would never have gone to Baltimore had it not been for a tattooed, tortured artist boyfriend in my life.

I'm all for experiences but am grateful that one is past me.

I would have never lived had it not been for my hubby saving me.

What beautiful boys you make--and no wonder, with a such a beautiful grandma fighting to make her pies. Oh! {and I want to hear Lala's story!}
