My aunt chastised me over Christmas for not posting more (Hi Auntie!!!), so this is my promise to her that more is coming.

In the meantime, I think these ideas are so interesting.

// My friend, interior designer Brian Paquette, talks in this interview about how every Friday is an “input day” for his office. They do things that feed them creatively: Read, go on walks, visit galleries, have companies come show them new products. I’d like to formalize this in my weekly routine, but I’m not sure where to start.

// This woman also likes to read, make lists, and get rid of things (we might be the same person), so when she recommended Into Mind as a helpful resource for simplifying your life, I clicked in and am still reading.

// “That’s not journalism, that’s copywriting. It’s advertising! To say that no journalist can finance his or her work through readers paying for it is an astonishing indictment of journalism and a lack of confidence in the whole enterprise.”

// The Lone Bellow’s new album just came out. If I were cool, I’d say it dropped. I’m not cool. As I said on Twitter earlier this week, Watch Over Us is my perfect song.

// Finally, we’ve been eating this Lentil and Sausage Soup lately (we used organic chicken sausage) and surprised ourselves by liking this Peanut Pumpkin Stew (we used almond butter).

P.S. I put some books on hold at the library and like a fool, I thought they’d trickle in one by one. They’re all here. Lend me your eyes, friends! I can’t do this alone!
