“Give it all” – A Quote to Hang Above Your Desk

“One of the few things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now…Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you.” -Annie Dillard

Expat Voting

“Composition” by Pierre Soulages, 1988

Friends, are you going to vote on the 6th?

I really want to vote in this election, although, to be honest, I haven’t decided who I’m going to vote for. Also, I haven’t figured out exactly how to cast my absentee ballot from Russia. Not much time left!

I was reading this really interesting article today about expat voting. Did you know, for example, that there has been a lot of expat enthusiasm for voting this election as the race has been really close?

Soviet Fashion

Soviet Fashion Model at Soviet Exhibit by Walter Sanders

I’ve been meaning to do a post about Soviet fashion for months now, and have finally gotten around to it. This summer our newsroom did a story on fashion in the USSR, and I found it to be totally fascinating.

I’d like to give you an Amazon Gift Card!

Hello friends!

I have some exciting news to share! I’ve finally moved Breakfast In Moscow to a WordPress.org site. I’ve so enjoyed playing around with the theme and widgets and plugins. I think the new site is a lot more functional than my current WordPress.com site – hopefully it will make it easier for me to post, and more enjoyable for you to read!

Starting today all Breakfast in Moscow posts will be put up regularly at the new site (www.eshockman.com), so come on over to check it out!

ALSO, if you leave a comment on the new site any time this week, or sign up to follow Breakfast in Moscow at the new location I’ll enter your name in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

Hope to see you there!

Happy Friday!

Well, we’re back in Russia. It’s gray and quiet here. We’re still unpacking and recovering from jet-lag, but glad to be back to our own three rooms, and routine. I miss my family (especially this good-looking relative), but I’m actually looking forward to getting back to the office. You know you’ve had a good vacation when you can’t wait to get back to work!

How was your week?

P.S. beautiful birch photo found here.
