What I'm up to now:
📚 Reading: “Riverine” by Danielle Jorgenson-Murray, a beautifully bittersweet story about a woman married off to a river. Published in Reckoning, a journal of creative writing on environmental justice. https://reckoning.press/riverine/
Can’t get enough of Lo-Fang’s cover of “You’re the One That I Want”. 🎧 Finally, a version that captures the creepiness! https://song.link/https://music.apple.com/us/album/youre-the-one-that-i-want/1147088543?i=1147088785
Pen friends: Oblation Papers & Press is having a sale on fountain pen ink, including their own new brand! Oblation Olive looks beautiful. And peep that dusky purple Kyo No Oto Sakuranezumi. 😍🖋️ https://www.oblationpapers.com/pens-ink/ink/bottled-ink/
Novel Eats, our summer of local food carts in the library parking lot, kicks off today with Bubbles & Treats! My drink is the Moxie with coconut milk. So good! https://bubblesandtreatspnw.com
I stand by the recommendations in this post, Writing On the Go, with one amendment: After using Field Notes for a while now, I’m switching back to pocket notebooks with Tomoe River paper. Paper preference is so personal! https://fromthe.study/writing-on-the-go/
Whoosh! The time machine of music whisked me back to 1989 Chicago with just the first few notes of “Treason” by Naked Raygun. 🎧 I do not know how the sorcery of Spotify found me out, but there I was, and here I am. https://song.link/i/1120037550
I learned the 5D’s of bystander intervention at the Hollaback training yesterday. Distract is my go-to, and I want to get better at Document and Direct. I highly recommend this training! https://www.ihollaback.org/bystander-resources/
Housing for everyone. Now.
