Morning walks are great because I get to see my neighborhood in bloom.
I had a really difficult time this week getting interested in what I was reading and finding stuff to write about — the motivation for a forthcoming blog post. Here’s what I read that I actually found insightful:
1. Adventures in
Infiltrating a white pride Facebook group and turning it into a LGBT Southerners for Michelle Obama group is a hardcore example of trolling that’s going to be hard to top.
3. I’m sad to say that it might be
time to break up with Drake.
4. Why is
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s artwork so woefully underrepresented in museum collections?
Beryl Markham might just be the greatest feminist icon most of us have never heard of.
And a bonus:
Fascinating historical photos of New York City, decorated to welcome WWI allies in 1917.
Have a wonderful weekend and week.
It’s so surreal to think that I will not be coming back to this place on Monday or even in September. And although I know I will visit, it’ll never be the same.
I’m so overwhelmed that so many people liked yesterday’s post. Thank you.
On to what I read this week:
1. I haven’t finished it because it might be a billion words, but
Paul Ford’s explanation of coding is incredible.
2. We all knew this already, but
closing bookstores is a very bad idea.
Secret wedding boards on Pinterest are a big thing. (Full disclosure: I do not have one.)
4. This isn’t really a story, but I have to go to
this yoga studio that plays Drake during class.
5. Some really astute points on
typography in UI design.
And a bonus:
Please watch the Wes Anderson version of “The Shining.”
Have a fantastic weekend!
