Friday Fare is where I post links to the random articles that have resonated with me during the week.
I went down a couple more weird Internet wormholes this week. A python that killed and ate a man. That led to watching a video of a group of kind rescuers in a southern India village watering a King Cobra from a water bottle. (<– Truly, that vid was kinda bad ass – don’t regret that.) But the strangest and sweetest article I ran into was this piece in Hero magazine where Stellan Skarsgard interviews his son Bill. (The trailer for the remake of Stephen King’s IT was released this week. Bill Skarsgard plays Pennywise the Clown. And man … I don’t care if that movie gives me nightmares, I think I need to go.)
Yeah … that’s kind of what I did this week.
Listening: Same ‘ol, same ‘ol.
Reading: George Saunders’ “Tenth of December.” Finished “Enchantments: A novel of Rasputin’s Daughter and the Romanovs” by Kathryn Harrison. My heart was a little broken after I read the last pages. “Enchantments” was a sublime read.
Fiction Update: Edits on my short story! I had an awesome tea-filled Tuesday evening where I went through the notes and feedback some of my writer friends gave me. I am blessed to have peers that push me to be a better writer.
