Library haul 📚 Hoping these will cure my reading slump. 😩
Library haul 📚 Hoping these will cure my reading slump. 😩
Hamlet by the Charles River tonight was set in a natural amphitheater, with Millennial actors modernizing the play to mix original language with the new. It was very well done, and I think allows the lyrical language and themes of the play to be more approachable and gains rather than loses meaning. We change, and language as a tool follows such change. Another change was reflected. The play included both black and white actors, albeit just one black actor, who played Hamlet's mom, and a woman who played Horatio. I can't help but notice race and gender wherever I go. On a night like today, especially today with Virginia, I have such extreme and mixed feelings about being American in America and the type of country I hope to work for one day. Would it include me and others who seem different in the we, in We the People? How fitting that I'm finishing a chapter in Ursula Le Guin's book The Lathe of Heaven where  reality changes based on a man's dream. In the current chapter's reality, everyone lives in a world of grey. Everyone is the color of grey, and there has never been racial tension. But there is still difference in disease status, origin, nationality, etc., and people killing each other. Bed time, for now, I think. #blacklivesmatter

Foolish me returned the book before I got a pic of the cover, so I decided I'd illustrate one of the most fantastic developments in the book! Absolutely would recommend The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin to any reader of sci-fi or fantasy or philosophy or books in general because it's just that fascinating! There's too much to spoil, so just go read it yourself. #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin #bookstagram #books #illustration #alien #character #characterdesign #sciencefictionart #sciencefiction #art #sketch #doodle #reading

Decent find today. It's been a while! The Lathe of Heaven has been on my radar for some time. Then there's this book, The Gates by John Connolly, autographed edition. I'm pretty pumped, not a bad buy for $9. Hope you all are doing well!! #johnconnolly #thegates #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin #constantreader #circleofbookishfriends #bookstagram #books #bookcollection #bookworm #booknerd #read
My #latest #library acquisitions!! I am already #hooked on Go Set a Watchman and Thunder on the Right. Ready to dive into the #romance of Mary Stewart! And finally, I am sooo excited to read my first Ursula K. Le Guin novel. #harperlee #gosetawatchman #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin #marystewart #thunderontheright #rosecottage #bookstagram #books #fantasy #scifi #britlit
Ridiculously just my 3rd Le Guin (2nd work of fiction). Story of a man whose dreams become reality and the therapist who wants to take advantage of it. Little book of big ideas. Also has anyone linked the work of Le Guin and that of Hermann Hesse? The nuanced handling of Eastern influences, I found, to be pretty dominant from start to finish. #igreads #bookstagram #thelatheofheaven #scifi #ursulaleguin #scribner #hermannhesse #easternphilosophy
📖El amor no solo se queda ahí, 
como una piedra;
tiene que hacerse,
como el pan,
rehacerse todo el tiempo,
hacerse de nuevo 📖
–The Lathe of Heaven, de Ursula K. Le Guin.

to let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven. - zhuangzi #oilpuddle #laundromat #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin
Did you ever happen to think, Dr. Haber,' he said, quietly enough but stuttering a little, 'that there, there might be other people who dream the way I do? That reality's being changed out from under us, replaced, renewed, all the time—only we don't know it? Only the dreamer knows it, and those who know his dream. If that's true, I guess we're lucky not knowing it.
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven
---
This book is fucking great. One day George Orr wakes up and realizes that his dreams have the ability to alter reality. The psychiatrist that George seeks out sees the potential to change the world in his own image if he can just harness the potential power of George's dreams. With the world racked by violent wars and environmental catastrophes Dr. Haber attempts to create his own utopia. Eliminating overpopulation, cancer, poverty, racism, mental illness, and bringing peace and balance to the earth. What could go wrong? Alien invasions? Loved ones misplaced or never existing? Le Guin is a master of science fiction and a hell of a writer.
"And since then Haber had at least been candid with Orr about his manipulations. Though candid was not the right word; Haber was much too complex of a person for candor. Layer after layer might peel off the onion and yet nothing be revealed but more onion. That peeling off of one layer was the only real change."
"Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new. When it was made, they lay in each other's arms, holding love, asleep."

Previously I've only read the "Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula K. Le Guin, and I've been meaning to return to more of her work. Not only is she a seminal figure in science-fiction, but she also shares the Taurus North Node/Scorpio South Node arrangement of Henry Miller and Haruki Murakami. All three weave a congruent thread of questioning what is real and what is a dream, and the power of either to effect the state of the other, a pattern that I see in my own work, and a theme that is strongly targeted here in, Le Guin's "The Lathe of Heaven." #sciencefiction #dreamers #dreams #dreamvsreality #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin #henrymiller #harukimurakami #taurusscorpioaxis #lunarnodes #taurusnorthnode #scorpiosouthnode #bookstagram

Reality, dreams, altered reality and everything in between. Information rich, flowy prose and a very likable protagonist.

Late night movie is THE LATHE OF HEAVEN. Love the book and haven't watched this in a very long time. I have memories of my father watching this, on PBS, when it was first made (late 70's or early 80's I think).

#TBT Acrylic painting I did back in 2009🎨 Inspired by this quote: "What will the creature made all of seadrift do on the dry sand of daylight; what will the mind do, each morning, waking?" 🐙- from one of my favorite books, The Lathe of Heaven 💦💦💦what if our minds only reach their true, full potential when we're dreaming? Like jellyfish, our minds float freely while submerged under water and unconsciousness, but when they are awakened, washed ashore, they are immobilized and crushed by the weight of gravity and consciousness. #imadethis #artstagram #paintersofig #jellyfish

Book 4 for 2017, and despite the creatively terrible cover I loved this novel. This kind of sci-fi isn't for everyone but I'd recommend trying the #scifimasterworks selection from @gollancz if you want to take a first foray into the weird and wonderful world. ⭐️= 4.5/5 #thelatheofheaven #ursulaleguin #bookstagram #books #scifi #mairireads2017 #readingchallenge

Hayao Miyazaki'nin Yerdeniz Öyküleri isimli animesi Ursula K.Le Guin'in Tehanu ve Yer Deniz Öyküleri kitabından uyarlanmıştır. Ne güzeldir edebiyat ile sinemanın kucaklaşması.

Climate change has been predicted since the 1970s. I had no idea until I started reading this wonderful novel by Ursula K. Leguin which was published in 1976. The book takes place in a future where humanity was not able to stop its addiction to fossil fuels. Her predictions are chillingly accurate. I am always amazed how science fiction is able capture the future. I think it is because although science and technology might change, human nature inevitably remains constant. #bookstagram #bookselfie #sciencefiction #scifi #booknerd #readerforlife #booknerdigans #scifiwriters #thelatheofheaven #ursulakleguin #lovetoread

This is #identicalimprints and #bookspinebeauty which @inna_stiina tagged me for.
SF Masterworks is always an imprint I'm drawn to whenever I catch sight of one in a bookshop. I thought I owned plenty more, to be honest, so maybe i won't hold myself back next time I spy some!

left hanging. Sometimes, very rarely, science fiction writers possess a prescience that's stunning. I kept checking and rechecking the original publication date because given how current #thelatheofheaven  is it's difficult to believe it was written in 1971. Or maybe the authors who see the future so well - #ursulakleguin and #philipkdick - maybe these two are/were actually time travelers? Is their shared middle initial significant?  #whereiwaswhenifinished and with a head full of questions . . .  #whatshouldireadnext #bookstagram #sciencefiction

Finished reading "The Lathe of Heaven" by Ursula K. Le Guin, which is fitting as today is the author's birthday. The book is terrifying, heartbreaking, and beautifully written.

What I imagine George Orr to look like. Included is Dr. Haber's speech from The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. LeGuin. Definitely a much darker work than the tales of Earthsea.
