you will do foolish things,

but do them with enthusiasm.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette (b. Jan 28 1873, d. Aug 3, 1954, French Novelist)

She had an extraordinary and controversial life, considering when she was born.

I would like to read some of her work, but I wonder how well the material translates to English. I just bought a compilation of three short stores, "Gigi, Julie de Carneilha, and Chance Acquaintances: Three Short Novels". Although I won't be able to comment on the translation, I'll be sure to write about the stories themselves.

My two most foolish (and wonderful) acts this weekend:
1. driving to NY, spending less than 24 hrs and driving back
2. getting into an argument with a goose

Both were completely worth it. :)
