the second is from last year in September, driving back from France, starting in the morning and driving all day, into the night, to arrive home after midnight.
Longreads: this week, i followed various literary hashtags and arrived at funny ones, like mini stories from bookstores: #bookstorebingo, which reminded me of the days when i worked in a bookstore myself during university time, and the customers that arrived with puzzling questions: "Do you have that book, it was up in TV yesterday, can't remember the title but it had a blue cover.."
I also followed a hashtag that is for longer articles and stories: #longreads - and arrived at new magazines, and interesting reads, mostly non-fiction, here are some links:
- The Life and Death of an Impossible City - a photo essay + article about Kowloon Walled City inside HongKong
- AEON: Outlook: gloomy -- Humans are wired for bad news, angry faces and sad memories. Is this negativity bias useful or something to overcome?
- Berlin Nights - Letter from Germany, The New Yorker
