Where am I going? What am I doing?

"Take French lessons, go swimming a lot, buy Langston Hughes books, get high, hire a girl once a week to take care of your clothes (sew, clean, organize closets) find a psychiatrist, a Spanish baby sitter, take dancing, find shoemaker, write Hazel Scott, find yellow pills, buy books [a photographer friend] told me about—stop abusing Andrew (think of surprises for him)."

A  beautiful, painful documentary about Nina Simone was just released on Netflix. Get a bottle of wine and watch it tonight.

The above quote is taken from her diaries.
