This is the last full week before my kids head to school. My eldest is in second grade while the youngest heads to Kindergarten. I’m not sad that they are growing up, but they’ve been in a wonderful summer program and I’m going to miss those folks.
Neil Young is a cantankerous treasure, isn’t he? This was a fascinating article about the man, his process, and a few other interesting flights of thought.
This picture of three Italian grandmas holding migrant children in their laps restores some of my faith in humanity.
I’ve talked about my love of Olivia Colman, haven’t I? (If I haven’t, find the BBC’s show “The Night Manager” and watch her in all of her glory. She is wondrous.) I know that I’ve talked about my love of the Royal Family and so I’m psyched to see these pictures of Colman and Helena Bonham Carter in the upcoming season of Netflix’s “The Crown.”
Listening: Tanya Tucker … grateful that she’s still on this planet and grateful that she’s still making music.
Reading: Still reading Glensheen’s Daughter by Sharon Darby Hendry. Still. Finished J.D. Horn‘s “The King of Bones and Ashes” the first book of his “Witches of New Orleans” series. So good.
Writing Life: Ooof – I barely survived girls’ weekend. (And am still recovering two weeks later?) But it was productive and challenging.
I am looking forward to a long weekend. I think pickling green beans is in my future. Happy Friday!
