Just a reminder that my hero/inspiration Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed Weeknights comes out soon and you can pre-order it here. There are tons of great pre-order bonuses! Check out the 72-page preview, too!
If you’re looking for other (financial) ways to support fantastic women, The Body Pos Project has a Kickstarter:
In a culture saturated with imagery that often represents a singular type of beauty and body, the Body Pos Project is determined to fill the digital world with new voices.
The Body Pos Project shares profiles and portraits of women who are boldly redefining body positivity by showcasing new ideals of beauty, confidence and vulnerability. By creating a website and Instagram feed dedicated to publishing these women’s stories, our goal is to inspire all women to create relationships with their bodies that are radically loving.
They have a little over a week to go, and are only about half-way to goal. A friend of mine is one of their Body Pos Champions (Rebekah, pictured on the Kickstarter site) and I’m heartbroken that I can’t help support it right now since I’m back to paying non-insurance-covered doctors again after nearly a year off.
I have so many pairs of kid gloves. I started buying them in thrift stores and flea markets (pre-eBay, when vintage items were thick on the ground) and I’ve held onto them even though I never wear them anymore. I’m tempted to send them all to amazing artist Bunnie Reiss.
Robin (who is my opposite in nearly All The Ways) retweeted this last week:
It made me laugh because the most creative challenge of my life will be learning how to approach all the love and compassion crap I’m gonna have to wade through for the next year in my yoga teacher training. My inner darkness and I are fuckin’ tight. The very idea that I have the capacity for world-wide compassion makes me balk. I guarantee you that’s coming up in an essay at some point. If I can get to the point where I have the energy to actually be introspective without my brain shutting down.
This article about Shakespeare’s most popular plays is worth it just for the flow chart.
Postcards 5evah, for real. I miss ToastPost. There are some people who are keeping it going but I can’t commit to another round yet/right now.
