On this #followfriday I'm sharing @jo_rodgers (once more) because in a few finely crafted sentences that is what she does. Whether it's a dinner party, a walk in the rain to the shops to get milk, a stop at her local booksellers, I'm captivated. #onetofollow #ff And I need this 👆🏼space in my home, or I'll simply never be happy again 🤓
I had always been a fan of Superman comics and I knew the term ‘Superman’ was originally ‘Ubermensch’. The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche coined this word in 1833 and the definition was to suggest an individual whose creativity transcended ordinary human limitations.

“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.” -Henry Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer).
