“Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.”
–Rainer Maria Rilke*
*From this book, purchased from the gift shop in the Hotel Paisano in Marfa, Texas when I was there for my dad’s wedding last fall. If you like quotes, you need this unique, unexpected collection including authors from Bertolt Brecht (favorite from college) to T.S. Eliot.
Also, Marfa is an amazing place. So maybe to get there I had to fly to Dallas and then board the smallest plane ever to Midland only to land in a barn disguised as an airport and then listen to my sister and her boyfriend argue for the five hours it took to drive to Marfa in our economy-sized rental car without power anything (West Texas is practically another country). But, Marfa is a surreal, other-worldly place. No doubt it will inspire and amaze you.
