What was Beautiful:
The Tavares Strachan exhibit at the Frye Gallery, The Shape of Water movie, surrounding mountains in the crisp morning sunshine.
What made me Laugh:
Not quite Narwhal
also this picture of Riley that her dog walker took:
What I’ve been up to:
Coming into spring…planting seeds, planning out my garden…but I did also pull out some knitting last night just to sit and think.
What I’m reading:
So much! My library books are overdue but I have come across a ton of interesting tidbits:
Choosing the right relationship vs. What if it Wasn’t Love?
and from Why Anyone Would Want to be a Wife to the Breakdown of the American Marriage.
I didn’t say it was light reading! but finally, the Mercy of Moving On and the Importance of a BFF. We just all want someone to talk to (although apparently,Americans have Fewer than ever Close Confidantes)
And something to believe in. I’ve been reading a lot about secular Buddhism and art shrines after Religion for Atheists.
Moving from Empathy to Compassion as an act of Self Care.
and Everyone is Miserable, here’s what we can do about it.
Are you good at job hunting? I don’t think I need to take that test. But I do need help Getting un-stuck. And I know some people who need to read The Difference Between Feedback and Criticism.
The evolution of housing is something I think about a lot. We have so much space and spend so much time in the same small parts of it – usually staring at a screen. And possibly related, What does a Future with no Jobs Look Like?

Levelling up as a diver would definitely (for me) be diving in a flooded underwater prison. Or an opal mine.
Levelling up as a reader undoubtedly means reading everything Yrsa Daley-Ward puts out there. One More time with Energy.
A bit on Fernweh (“far-sickness), a “nice” woman-owned tattoo parlour and some beautiful illustrations of mythical beasts.
More on the #metoo movement – whose name I am starting to hate. let’s call it what it is – the systematic sanctioned abuse of women. And certainly related, Masculinity in the Age of Trump.
5 Things You Should Do Every Sunday Morning (just in time for the switch back to standard time tomorrow)
And perhaps most importantly, How not to Cheat Yourself out of Life’s Joys
