Reading Aloud To Others Is Boring

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 3, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s easy to take things out of context. All you need to do is take a single sentence, leave everything around it out, and you can give something a completely new meaning, twist words, in effect, to make a point. So it is with this single Tweet which, as you can guess from my comment, […]

Books: Setting Targets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2014 in Personal |

Anyone who hasn’t caught on to my love of books clearly hasn’t managed to grasp the whole story yet, although I’ve never been one to trumpet what I’ve read it can’t be said that I have never mentioned books and reading in my blog. Fortunately I am not the only one who enjoys reading, who […]

The Ideal Profession?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 16, 2014 in Personal |

I caught a conversation the other day between two people who have a love of books. Strange as it may seem, there are still a few of us left, people who prefer the old-fashioned art of reading, of holding a real book in their hands, turning pages, feeling the paper, smelling that unique aroma. Not […]

Reading: Quiet Time

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 22, 2014 in Personal |

I have absolutely nothing planned for today, it is one of those days when I can just sit down and do whatever I want without any pressure, without worrying about appointments, college work, housework or anything else. And I’m on my own. We still have Spring Break, although the changing weather means I can’t really […]

Grasping At Straws

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 10, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I have been accused of grasping at straws. It is a strange accusation, and one which I wish to answer in a roundabout way. You see, I do not believe that I am grasping at anything, more that I am taking a wide variety of sources and learning from the gathered wisdom and thoughts of […]

Keeping Score

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 27, 2014 in Personal |

Initially I was worried that the target I had set was too high. Looking through the lists it seemed as if many other people were trying for a far smaller number, something easily within their grasp. Then I saw a few who had opted for considerably more, and even some who had made good headway […]

Time To…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 27, 2013 in Personal |

Time to concentrate on one of the things that I love, and that is writing. In order to write I need to research, in order to research I need to read. Everything falls together as it should do. Photo Credit: Kevin_Morris – Creative Commons So, I shall be working my way through a few of […]

Stockpiling.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 29, 2012 in Personal |

I should be, and I am, concentrating on reading Marcel Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past, but my friends know that they have to drag me kicking and (silently) screaming away from any bookshop which happens to be open. Yesterday I increased my stockpile of books for a rainy day by two, adding Melania G. Mazzucco’s […]

Reading Matter.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 24, 2012 in Personal |

Keeping up with the times is essential in this day and age, and there are some things which you can’t get on the Internet, surprising as that may seem. One of my interests is architecture, so I made a point of getting the latest edition of Architectural Digest over here. It is an American magazine […]

Being Subtle.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 17, 2012 in Personal |

Anyone can write, but not everyone can write what other people wish to read. Not everyone can write works which will stay in the reader’s mind. Few can write in such a manner that their words cause the reader to pause, to think, to create a mental image, to truly appreciate language. Despite a recent […]
