Legend Of A Bygone Era

“I don’t want to live. I want to love first, and live incidentally.”

-Zelda Fitzgerald

Flappers & Philosophers

July 29, 2011

Just finished F. Scott Fitzgerald’s collection of short stories:

I fell in love with the story “The Offshore Pirate”!!!

“All life is just a progression toward,

and then a recession from,

one phrase  – I love you”

~F. Scott Fitzgerald

“The Offshore Pirate was first published on May 29, 1920, Fitzgerald’s third story in The Saturday Evening Post that month. It would later be included in his first collection of short stories, Flappers and Philosophers(1921). The story begins with a young aristocrat, Ardita, on a yacht anchored close to shore. She is reading The Revolt of the Angels by Anatole de France. She argues with her exasperated uncle who is intent on marrying her off to a young man named Toby. Left to herself while her uncle goes ashore, Ardita and the crew are overrun by pirates—Curtis Carlyle and his Six Black Buddies. Ardita and Carlyle strike up a friendship that blossoms into love.”

I highly suggest you pick up a copy of Flappers & Philosophers!!!

Since they announced the passing of Amy Winehouse 

an unfortunate number of people have gone out of their way 

to write some viciously cruel things!

I guess this is very easy to do of course 

when she’s not your daughter, your sister, your friend…

She struggled enough with her own demons in life 

to deserve peoples compassion – not there ridicule!

…and so it is time to say good-bye 

to a talented young woman whose light burned out too soon.
