You know what they say about the beginning of your day. It is really important how you will start. Well I have my little rituals in my little world and I this morning one of these ritual brought me another piece of joy which I wanted to share.
I usually (when I can) like to start my days slow and to read a good story that somehow sets its spell on me for the whole day. This morning I was imprisoned by …. words. Deep and candid those words were written by a favourite novelist and journalist, Andrew O’Hagan, who is playing a tribute to another amazing author and journalist, and contemporary icon – Joan Didion – in the Porter magazine (I know…. this is a Fashion magazine). In his beautifully written story his words struck me so deeply that I could not live the day without sharing it with you, here they are:
STYLE, we are reminded, is the sum total of your devotion to making life a LITTLE MORE PERFECT, A LITTLE MORE LIVED. And that to me is Joan Didion. At 80 years old she has the same beautiful talent she always had, except now her voice is that of a necessary angel. She is the coolest writer on the planet, with a tonic intelligence that not only helps readers to fully inhabit their lives but which dignifies our times.”
