Link Party: 3/27-3/31

Somewhere in the sort-of-not-really desert, California, USA.

March was a marathon month, and I suspect the next 30 days are going to feel like a sprint. I kickstarted April with a day trip in and around the desert: a wildflower walk, a mirrored house art installation and the best milkshakes. April, here I come — no bad days.

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

1. The world of Japanese luxury fruit.

2. A personal essay on envisioning California.

3. Donald Trump’s vision of New York, stuck in the 1980s.

4. A Navajo chef on the complexities of Native American cuisine.

5. Why Joan Didion writes “so much” about clothes.

And a bonus: I am really, really feeling this mood board for summer 2017.

Have a great week.

My favorite daily reminder.

My favorite daily reminder.

There hasn’t been much Link Partying around here lately. I need to fix that, and I promise to be more consistent in the last few weeks of 2016 and into 2017.

Here’s a party to last you all week. Take your pick:

1. An interview with Frank Ocean.

2. Zadie Smith on the dancers that inspire her. (I can’t wait to read Swing Time.)

3. An American journalist spends 10 years abroad and comes back to his homeland.

4. Hillary Clinton and the glass ceiling.

5. Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam‘s collaboration.

6. The barnacle queens of Galicia.

7. Instagram geotagging is ruining nature.

8. Yet another brilliant conversation with Elena Ferrante.

9. The wave of all-women art exhibitions.

10. The preserved shipwrecks in the Black Sea.

11. President Obama on his legacy and America’s future.

12. Behind the scenes at the Butterball turkey hotline.

Have a great week.
