May Baby

"I think there are certain things you have to face about yourself,” she says. “I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life. Sometimes you think: I’m the Queen of the May—I can do anything. The great thing about life is—the terrible thing about life is—that everything is mixed up. All the things that you thought were one way suddenly turn out to be another way. I don’t think anybody that has a brain can really be happy. What is there really to be happy about? You tell me. If you’re a thinking human being, there’s no way to divorce yourself from the world... So what you think is happy? Happy shmappy. I think you have to be unconscious to be happy. Are you unconscious?” -Lauren Bacall from a vanity fair article. Reading about old hollywood, listening to the blues. Happy May!
