today i believe...

... that one of the greatest, simplest joys of a new home is discovering how the space grows and changes with each new season. (Especially spring.)

... that spending time with someone from your hometown can return you to yourself.

... that there are few film adaptations as good as the original novel — The Notebook, and maybe The Perks of Being a Wallflower — but The Great Gatsby sure seems to be in the running.

... that nothing hints at summer quite like fresh, ripe watermelon.

... that a long trip on public transportation — of any kind, really — somehow fuels creativity, bringing the best, most inspiring thoughts to the surface.

... and that there's just something to be said for living a quiet life every once in a while.

i love this! especially the part about living the quiet life and the movie adaptations. i thought that october sky and water for elephants did the books justice, but not many others!

oh, your house looks so lovely and lively and shady. that's too many 'and' in one sentence. even though i'm not a fan of nicholas sparks, i agree the notebook is a good adaptation from the book. but personally, i think the lord of the ring series is still winning. haha. also, the curious case of benjamin button, even though it's from a short story, not a novel. i think David Finch is a real genius in that one.

i love long drive on public transportation too. especially when it's train. it does trigger your creativity. but i don't like a long flight though. ha.

Spot on about the public transport thing- I'm sure I heard that JK Rowling got the idea for Harry Potter on a train! And a quiet life is just lovely sometimes. xx
