On the Menu
I haven’t gotten this far yet! I’m making some wings Saturday, but not sure what to put with them. I got some new curry pastes at Lee Lee’s last weekend, so maybe some curry!
My Instagram Post of the Week
I’m now at 600+ pages of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I am enjoying it, although I still haven’t figured out why.
I started reading Connie Willis’ collection of short stories, Fire Watch. So far, I’ve found it to be a very diverse collection of stories – some history, some time travel, some hard sci-fi, and some fantasy. Each story is a beautiful self-contained world. I love Connie Willis’ writing.
The Song of the Week
And because singing astronauts are just too cool, here’s another:
More singing dragons please!

Inspiration for the Week
Be willing to walk away from things that feel wrong. Know that you have the ability to be a light in the darkness, and don’t allow the darkness to dim YOU in any way.
Life can be good and joyful and light-filled and wonderful. You get to choose EVERY DAY where you put your energy….every single day. -Brave Girls Club
Monthly Practice toward Inner Peace
I’ve finished the monthly practice of forgiveness. What I learned this month is that if I recognize my part in the issue and do the work to forgive myself, forgiveness of others seems to happen almost effortlessly. This was a really great month for me.
Next month my practice is compassion. The inspiration for this month comes from this quote: “Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others.” – Gerald G. Jampolsky This month will be a real challenge for me!
