Austen

literarystarbucks:

Austen goes up to the counter and orders a cinnamon spice latte. The barista is a bore. The man behind her in line orders exactly what she orders; he too is a bore. He is handsome in the conventional sense, but there is no chance they could ever be married.

my life is one part “wait” and another part “what”

Ah ! Que ce dernier jour de septembre est donc beau !
Ma tristesse sourit. Elle qu’avril offusque,
se laisse décider par l’automne, moins brusque.
— Edmond Rostand - Cyrano de Bergerac, acte V scène IV (via feuille-d-automne)

Oscar-Claude Monet - Lilac Irises

Monet began this work of art in 1914 and finished in 1917. The artist painted irises throughout his career because the iris was one of his favorite flowers. Lilac Irises is one of the last examples of his collection of irises. Monet wanted to document the French countryside in which he lived and to do so, he adopted a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.

Frost

literarystarbucks:

Robert Frost goes up to the counter and orders a tall pumpkin spice latte. He takes one sip, but he drops it on the floor almost instantly. “Nothing gold can say,” he says sadly, and walks away into the fall evening.

Hemingway

literarystarbucks:

Hemingway goes up to the counter and orders one espresso. It’s hot. He drinks it in silence. It makes him remember his father’s cabin. He thinks about the woman he loved once. He does not smile. The coffee reminds him of war - short but painful, swallowed down quickly. One could order worse drinks. He leaves Starbucks and walks out into the rain.

Keats

literarystarbucks:

Keats goes up to the counter and orders a venti iced Caramel Frappucino. He sits down at a table by himself, sighs dramatically, and doesn’t drink it.
