Shall we start with the books?
|From Left to Right: 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', byLewis Carroll. 'Monsters', by Christopher Dell. 'Mythologies', by Roland Barthes. 'Tree and Leaf', by J.R.R Tolkien.|
The book on monsters is a random purchase I made on a whim once, and it's basically all about religious/mythological creatures. It's also amazingly illustrated. It always gives me a supernatural and yet beautiful vision of death and danger, as well as mythology, whenever I need it.
Mythologies by Dr Roland Barthes is quite the strange one, too. I don't know how to classify it, but it could go under the 'essay' label, as an academic, thoughtful and funny account of the author's reflections on life. It's incredibly inspiring, and my most recent purchase. I'm not done with it, I'll keep you updated!
Another book which I find kind of unclassifiable is my favorite one as of late (behind Alice, no one beats her). I bought it whilst searching the meaning of the word "Mythopoeia" (Noun: The making of a myth or myths), and, seeing as it was written by one of my favorite people in history, JRR Tolkien, I decided to get a copy (and one for my dearest friend Blanca, because I thought she'd enjoy it), and it's a beautiful compilation of essays, reflections, short stories and poems by the author of The Lord of The Rings. My Father says it looks really boring. I think not.

These are possibly my three top favorite films in the world. I will not talk about them even a little because that wouldn't be enough to express my love for them. I just urge you to watch them. The aesthetics, storylines, camera shots and directors/writers of these films are my real raison d'être when it comes to making ANYTHING creative.
I hope you have an amazing weekend, and, if you're in Spain, mini-break. You probably deserve it. Thank you for sharing my love for these things and allowing me to be boring and open about them.
I love you. xx
