Friday Fare: 7/26/19

Let’s just take a moment and give thanks for Gordon Lightfoot.  Because he’s B.A.

This article from Harpers Magazine earned the San Luis Valley a spot on my travel list.  Just incredibly well written, an interesting life to contemplate.

I’ve never been a big doughnut person.  I can appreciate a decent cake donut, preferably plain.  I probably ate my weight in chocolate-frosted cake donuts when I was a kid (and since they don’t taste the same as they did from the Waukon Bakery, I just don’t like them anymore).  But over the past year, I’ve gained a decent appreciation for the Danish.  Hyvee makes a caramel pecan one that’s crispy and addictive.  This article takes a look at an iconic pastry.


Listening: Of course, since I read about the San Luis Valley, I had to listen to Gregory Alan Isakov’s song:

Reading:  Work decided to ramp up this week, so unfortunately, that means life has been light on the reading front.

Writing Life:  That damn work and how it encroaches on my creative world! 😉 On the bright side, I did take a couple mental health days and that means some heads down time in my book. 

Happy Friday!

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.

  1. Donuts are ambrosia to complement the nectar of coffee. Foods of the gods. Especially jelly donuts. A thousand years from now, America will be remembered for its four greatest contributions to humanity: The Constitution, Jazz, Baseball, and Donuts.
