Sarah Addison Allen on The Girl Who Chased the Moon
“How tall is he?” she asked, her voice hushed, as if he might hear.
“Tall enough to see into tomorrow.”–Chapter Two, The Girl Who Chased the Moon
Every book I’ve written has had some element of fairytale to it. The sentient apple tree in Garden Spells. The Rapunzel references in The Sugar Queen. And The Girl Who Chased the Moon is no different. I actually ended up with a giant in this story.
I remember when I first wrote elderly Vance Shelby into The Girl Who Chased the Moon. He walked into a room and had to duck under the doorframe. I knew then that this was no ordinary man. This was a giant. But how tall was too tall? When would real become unreal? It’s a fine line. I began to research gigantism and discovered the tallest man in history for whom there is irrefutable medical proof: Robert Pershing Wadlow, the Giant of Illinois. At the time of his death at the young age of 22, Wadlow was almost nine feet tall. It’s a stunning number, isn’t it? Nine feet tall. I pored over old film and audio interviews from the 1930s, trying to get a feel for what his life was like, so I could present with veracity this magically tall man in my story. What I discovered was a soft-spoken gentle giant whose legs were so long he walked like he was on stilts, whose body listed to the side like a skyscraper made of soft wood instead of concrete. But he was always smiling, accepting the stares and the requests for photos good-naturedly as he toured with Ringling Brothers and the International Shoe Company. He never hid himself away. He mingled among regular-sized people like he knew he had to savor every moment. And maybe he did know. Maybe he was tall enough to see into tomorrow.
In honor of Wadlow, I took all that I thought a young giant might wish for–a long life, a wife, a family, a place that accepted him as he was, where he was just another town oddity–and I gave it to elderly Vance Shelby in The Girl Who Chased the Moon. And as an old giant, Vance looks back on a life he always wanted to be extraordinarily small, and finds that it was exactly the size it needed to be. Which I think might be truth for us all. –Sarah Addison Allen
Las fotos son una mierd… una porqueria. Estan hechas con mi camarita y a escondidas. Yo al menos lo hacia sin Flash, porque las pobres Vvigilantas" agotaron las suelas de los zapatos detras de todos los que hacian fotos, pero es que solo falto que el alcalde, en primera fila shubiera sacado su camara para hacer alguna foto. Por cierto, el no hizo, pero su guardaspaldas bien de fotos hizo con el movil desde su ubicacion privilegiada.
A lo que iba. El concierto fantastico. Woody en su papel. Cuando el no tocaba el clarinete, daban ganas de bajar al escenario y decir: "chss…chsss… wooosy…wooo-dy? WODY! despierta!!!" 😛
Estuvo todo el concierto es su peculiar pose casi tirado sobre la silla, con las piernas cruzadas, ensenando la canilla, y con el pecho no hundido,.. sino que casi vuelto del reves. Luego se marcaron 20 minutos de bises, ya de pie y mas "bailarin".
Quien tenga oportunidad que no deje espcapar la ocasion. Aparte de Woodey Allen, disfrutara de un gran concierto de JAZZZZZ.

Like the Cards? I only used 5. But Allen cheats anyway, so just pretend it’s his stash. o.O
disclaimer: I made these backgrounds, but I own nothing. If you do and you object to me using whatever it is you own, let me know and I’ll take it down. Images are usually altered from the originals. (ie color, expanding on the image, etc.)
Please let me know if you like it! Just so I know whether it’s worth sharing…

From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done can transform the way you work, showing you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.
With first-chapter allusions to martial arts, “flow,” “mind like water,” and other concepts borrowed from the East (and usually mangled), you’d almost think this self-helper from David Allen should have been called Zen and the Art of Schedule Maintenance.
Not quite. Yes, Getting Things Done offers a complete system for downloading all those free-floating gotta-do’s clogging your brain into a sophisticated framework of files and action lists–all purportedly to free your mind to focus on whatever you’re working on. However, it still operates from the decidedly Western notion that if we could just get really, really organized, we could turn ourselves into 24/7 productivity machines. (To wit, Allen, whom the New Economy bible Fast Company has dubbed “the personal productivity guru,” suggests that instead of meditating on crouching tigers and hidden dragons while you wait for a plane, you should unsheathe that high-tech saber known as the cell phone and attack that list of calls you need to return.)
As whole-life-organizing systems go, Allen’s is pretty good, even fun and therapeutic. It starts with the exhortation to take every unaccounted-for scrap of paper in your workstation that you can’t junk, The next step is to write down every unaccounted-for gotta-do cramming your head onto its own scrap of paper. Finally, throw the whole stew into a giant “in-basket”
That’s where the processing and prioritizing begin; in Allen’s system, it get a little convoluted at times, rife as it is with fancy terms, subterms, and sub-subterms for even the simplest concepts. Thank goodness the spine of his system is captured on a straightforward, one-page flowchart that you can pin over your desk and repeatedly consult without having to refer back to the book. That alone is worth the purchase price. Also of value is Allen’s ingenious Two-Minute Rule: if there’s anything you absolutely must do that you can do right now in two minutes or less, then do it now, thus freeing up your time and mind tenfold over the long term. It’s commonsense advice so obvious that most of us completely overlook it, much to our detriment; Allen excels at dispensing such wisdom in this useful, if somewhat belabored, self-improver aimed at everyone from CEOs to soccer moms (who we all know are more organized than most CEOs to start with). –Timothy Murphy
