It feels like I survived the wars this week, and came out standing!! Nothing takes your mind off the insanity of politics like a plumbing problem… however, I hope we are good on plumbing for the rest of the year! LOL
There were some lovely little bright spots this week, though…
First up, did you see that Joy Harjo will serve a third term as US Poet Laureate? This article contained the loveliest of rabbit holes… I discovered Living Nations, Living Words. The interactive map contains 47 Native Nations poets and is a place I have bookmarked to visit again when I need a diversion (better this than plumbing problems! lol).
I was excited to see a trailer for Between the World and Me, airing tomorrow on HBO (and HBOMax) at 8PM.
And, finally… I have a baby in knits! Winston has finally (sort of) grown into the vest and socks I made for him! I think it will fit him for at least for a little while. If I can’t hug him in person, it is nice to know he is snug in something I made him – each stitch filled with love, prayers, hope for his future, and joy in his being.
