Smack dab in the middle of the Missouri River, also known as the Sister River— longer than the Mississippi and once super destructive. What a great city. #omaha #midwest (at Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge)Link →

I first read 100 Years of Solitude when I was 15 and was dumbfounded by such magical prose. I have read many Gabriel Garcia Marquez books and reread 100 Years so many times since then. His stories do exactly what amazing fiction is supposed to do — teach you about struggle and subservience. About love and anger and the seemingly contradictory nature of our actions. About family and strength and curiosity. About desire and death.
At moments in my life, I compare myself to a Aureliano or a Rebeca or a Fermina or even the pleading, lost lover in “Eyes of a Blue Dog.” And I think to myself, hot damn. He is such a f*cking good writer. You find yourself in his characters.
The world lost a great one. But luckily, his words live on. Read them!
"It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment."
