(Trying to learn Polish, and this seemed like the most apt word for this week.)
Thanksgiving has come and gone, leaving behind the faint smell of mashed potatoes and kielbasa throughout our house (not complaining). I hope your holiday was filled with the sound of your family’s laughter, some crazy stories you get to recount next year, and lots of pie. I hope there was insane amounts of pie.
Here’s what I’m reading:
Jamestown is fascinating, and if you don’t think so, that article will prove you wrong.
“The Biblical Rheology of Deep-Dish Pizza”: man oh man, this is good writing. This is phenomenal writing. This is writing that picks you up off of your seat, twirls you around, and kisses you on the mouth. That’s how good this writing is.
Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese? Yes. This is it. This is real love.
Finally, if you’re a creative, or just consider yourself creative, or you think you’re “creative,” with the air quotes, you should listen to Elizabeth Gilbert’s podcast, “Magic Lessons.” She coaches writers, musicians, painters and other types of artists through the creative process, which is intoxicating to listen to for someone like me (who is, indeed, creative). Give it a go.
