Here’s a quick look into my world right now, though the lens of:
Thinking about … time. I just read (in my ears, with kudos to Ethan Hawke’s fantastic narration) Slaughterhouse-Five. I’ve somehow managed to miss reading this classic and I’m grateful to Novel Pairings podcast for putting it in my path right now. There’s a lot going on in this short novel, and much of it is dark and depressing. but the idea that time isn’t linear – that’s a limitation of our three-dimensional minds – has always fascinated me. I encountered this in a spiritual sense a few years ago through one of Krista Tippett’s On Being podcasts (maybe this one?) when the discussion touched on God’s time as being different from ours. I did a good bit of googling to try to understand what the book was about. One site I found (link) talked about how humans are pessimists, always recalling the the worst about their lives. Folks who live in four dimensions enjoy life more because they know that life goes on. Big questions. lots to think about!
Grateful for … another weekend. making it through another week. afternoon naps. dark early quiet. the promise of a new season.
Inspired by … a great month of reading to spend some time with my book journal. I haven’t updated it since March 8 and I count ELEVEN titles in those cute little covers that I need to write about!
FUN … Sara flies back April 1! hopefully with a much easier trip than she had in December. This time, she’ll be taking a taxi from Bristol to Heathrow on March 31st so she can catch an early morning flight on April 1 without the hassle (worry) of the train. She starts her new job April 6 … and that means we have a few days to play (and adjust) and have fun!
Wishing y’all a happy Friday … and the best weekend available!
