...was a fun mishmash: a hike along Hastain trail in Franklin Canyon Park and the Russian version of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (Tot samyy Myunkhgauzen), which is strange and delightful (thank you to M + S for hosting a bang up Russian themed party). In the above scene, the baron describes shooting a deer in the head with a cherry pit, and then returning years later to find a cherry tree growing out of its head. And also, I will admit it, Breaking Dawn. Can we talk about how overly-fussy the wedding in the woods was? The uncomfortable shoes, the cocktail dresses, all the satin, sequins and weird wristlet on the train of the dress? By the way: the New York Review of Books recently re-released Charles Simic's  Dime-Store Alchemy: The Art of Joseph Cornell,  which would make a great gift for any poetry/Cornell lover.
