"A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe"
A few book recommendations :
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle : I am learning to live in the now, learning to know that the moment is enough. That I am enough. This book has been so helpful, though sometimes a bit too mystic.
Van Gogh, le suicidé de la société by Antonin Artaud : Beautiful, violent writing about genius and folly by a writer who's got a lucid comprehension of both.
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez : I've read this book again to honour late Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Love in all its forms but most of all pure eternal passion.
Exister by Nobert Neuburger : some answers to knowing you're alive but having doubts about existing.

Slice very thinly the shallot. Set aside. Steam squash and chestnuts for 10 minutes. In a bowl, roughly mash the shallot, squash and chestnuts. Add spices and mix well. In a gratin dish, place the mixture.
