Closing The Door on The Red and Purple Room

This is officially the last post that will appear on the The Red and Purple Room as my room has become less red and purple, my interests have expanded and I want to follow a new direction in the blogging universe. However, this signifies a new beginning and I will now be discussing and showcasing everything from acting, fashion, photography, writing and music through my new persona, The Cherry Orchard Girl, at

This means no hand-me-down ideas, but originality and inspiration!

I hope to see you all there!

If You're Going to Try

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”

Alessandra Ferri and Sting - Enchanting Short

Look at this amazing short film starring principal ballet dancer Alessandra Ferri alongside Sting, who plays Bach's 'Prelude' from 'Cello Suite nr.1 in G major' on acoustic guitar. Set in an abandoned city building, complete with water damage and dark, misty atmosphere, this film is something different and plainly beautiful.

There is So Much About my Fate...

"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts."
Elizabeth Gilbert
