Friday’s Inspiration

How was your week? I worked late and often. Up even earlier and quicker. Today, I had therapy and two workshop meetings that called my later afternoon home. And now the kids are cuddled on the couch with pizza and a movie. It’s become our Friday night ritual. What are you doing this weekend? Here are a few things that inspired me this week…

We’ve survived the tyranny of convenience culture and the invasion of Caviar, Seamless and Grubhub. So I’m going to let the restaurant sleep, like the beauty she is, shallow breathing, dormant. Bills unpaid. And see what she looks like when she wakes up — so well rested, young all over again, in a city that may no longer recognize her, want her or need her.

We’re going to be ok

Any new kid books on your list? I added Little Man Little Man by James Balwin to the shop page. And of course, Ada Twist.

    So much inspiration here! Reading the Lucille Clifton poem during these times, a poem I have known for so long, feels particularly bittersweet. It hits all the right notes right now.

    The photo of Audre Lorde and May Ayim together is also bittersweet. Both of them left us too soon.

    Little Man, Little Man is a gem of a book. The story sparked a lot of questions from my kids!
