I've been intrigued by Rick Rubin since I heard him on Ezra Klein's podcast + subsequently read his book, The Creative Act: A Way of Being. I found Shangri-La, through a long ago pinned photo of his intentionally designed studio space. All of the above are worth consuming with a notebook + pen.
I read Audrey Elledge + Elizabeth Moore's Liturgies for Hope after Jo texted me photos of a couple of pages from it. These words are sticking with me.
I've been dealing with some pain lately + experimenting with treatment, perspective + the mind body connection. While I waited for the library's copy of The Body Keeps the Score (again), I listened to Bessel Van der Kolk (again) here + here. All of it has me reading + listening every chance I get.
Watching Flora + Son was a reminder that joy can be found in the present...even in an imperfect present. It's a reminder that curiosity + connection are worth pursuing...even imperfectly.
How do you do your laundry?
One degree of separation from being raw materials again.
