Joan Didion, Green Tea and the Best of Intentions

I have a tendency —

a tendency to want to learn things so I feel smarter for doing them.

Rarely do I find pure enjoyment or a reason to get engrossed…

I’m still not done with Beyond Good And Evil which I purchased three years ago.

God, Nietzsche would roll in his grave… or perhaps lecture me…

or perhaps babble at me incoherently… or perhaps do nothing at all.

But perhaps with Joan I can find a love for creative nonfiction again.

Green tea never tasted so good.

I hope to learn, but I intend to enjoy.

the image is that at of a man sitting in the edge of large display window with his back bend and shoulders hunched forward staring at the screen of my mobile phone. He is wearing destressed black jeans and a striped tee and is holding in his other hand a blue jean jacket. He seemed a bit concerned about the message he is reading.
