Sepia Saturday

Each week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to respond to a historic or nostalgic photos. For some reason the first thought that came to me about this week’s photo is the Algonquin Round Table, a group of witty writers, critics and actors who would meet for lunch at the Algonquin Hotel.

There’s something attractive about a group of smart, funny people meeting everyday and exchanging stories and barbs and working together on projects. They put on plays, vacationed together on an island in Vermont and played numerous pranks on each other.

Sculpture Saturday

In Xi’an, China

Saturday Sculpture was hosted by the  Mind over Memory blogger

To join in, what you need to do is:

1. Share a photo of a sculpture.

2. Link or ping back to Ruined for Life because Mind over Memory’s has had to stop hosting. Between a new graduate program and work, she’s super busy.

It’s a fun challenge. Give it a try.
