Quote of the Week – The Great Gatsby

IMG_0219

“What’ll we do with ourselves this afternoon?” cried Daisy, “and the day after that, and the next thirty years?”

“Don’t be morbid,” Jordan said. “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

I have just finished re-reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and thoroughly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t read it yet (is there anyone?) or re-reading it to those who have previously read it. It never fails to make me fall in love with Fitzgerald’s writing style.


Suggested soundtrack: Harry Nilsson’s album “A Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night” has the right vibes for a late-night audio session; or search out any of the music actually mentioned in the book.
