“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”

Cinfhen Beautiful 💜so glad you‘re back....missed your quotes! 4y
LiterRohde @Cinfhen By the last week of June, seven monthly challenges was becoming a chore and not a joy. I was spending hours a day researching my posts. And even then I was putting out stuff that was not my best. So, I took some time to regroup and signed up for only 3 of the 6 or 7 that I‘ve seen posted for July. 4y
LiterRohde @Cinfhen I usually seem to connect with yours, and I love that you pick a partner ( @KarenUK ) each month and have a Spotify playlist. @TK-421 runs Quotsy, which is my OG challenge that I started soon after joining just over a year ago. And finally, I am doing a new one that looks fun by @Sweetkokoro - especially if I get some prizes out of it. 😉 It was a new way to organize prompts by color. My only fear is that it becomes book cover colors. (edited) 4y
Cinfhen I agree when posting feels like a chore it‘s time to take a step back. I‘m glad that you‘ve connected with my challenges❣️❣️❣️❣️I‘m in my third year hosting and it‘s been a joy 🎶I‘ve gotten to “meet” so many Littens that way 🥰 Hope you‘re enjoying the start of your summer break. 4y

I got no reading done this weekend because my sister in law, my kids and I took a road trip to see another one of my sister in laws. It was the hottest days we‘ve had this summer so far but lots of fun!

Invisible Cities | Italo Calvino
post image

#GetOuttheMap #LillithJuly
There are no maps for the cities Marco Polo describes to Kublai Khan in this dreamy, unconventional masterpiece. His tales of city after imaginary city are beautifully written, but also feel like philosophical mysteries to solve. Not sure what Calvino had in mind, but it felt like a struggle to grasp all the dichotomies the world gets split into, and what they share in common.
@KarenUK @Cinfhen

KarenUK What beautiful illustrations! Just gorgeous 😍😍😍 4y
Cinfhen Strongly agree with my lovely cohost 💜 4y
Billypar @KarenUK @Cinfhen They're from a box of postcards that we decided to hang on our wall- every now and then they find there way into a Litsy post (as is the case for most of our apartment 🙂). 4y

I've very confused about our flight path... I mean, flying into Canada can not be the best way to get to Denver. #GetOutTheMap

I love books that start with a map, brings the book to life - especially if it is a fantasy world. I like how the Freida Klein books by Nicci French each figure a map from London‘s underground rivers. River Effra was my favourite one as covered the area I was brought up in London as a child.
A great series!

KarenUK Oooo.... never heard of this series... sounds great! I love a London set novel... Stacked! 4y
Cinfhen I think a map really adds to the story 4y

(Day 1 - #GetOutTheMap)

*Paul Theroux has traveled the map. This song made me think of all the times Theroux may have gotten out the map. For all of you Theroux addicts out there, he has a new one coming out in October: “On the Plain of Snakes: A Mexican Journey.”
*The images above are representative of the lyrics of the song.

KarenUK Nicely done! I just love this song... just makes you want to jump in a car and take off...... 💕🎶 4y
Cinfhen Another fabulous college and I love your signature image 👍🏻 4y
gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen Thanks so much for commenting! Yes, I like my “cat in the hat” . . . ♥️ 4y
