my week in objects (mostly).

November 22, 2019

1. this eucalyptus.

{and the farmer’s market in general}

2. this little work in progress.

{and always, those little hands.}

3. this tissue box cover.

{because some weeks, you just need a box of tissues. and all the better if it looks nice.}

4. this not-too-little, not-too-big bag.

{just the right size for long days out and about.}

5. this truly giant tote.

{a blessing every year at this time for wrangling things to be photographed and/or secreted away. my personal in-home storage unit.}

other things:

new york is a tough town to sit in.

pinned lately.

the arithmetic crystallization of my anxieties around parenthood in our precarious era.

we’re in the early stages of building a listening library of powerful female voices.

you might as well bring in the fainting couch for the non-menstruating public.

the ghosts of mothers and daughters. cw: pregnancy loss

hot take.

fermented dough wizardry.

    I always look forward to the short reading lists you add to the end of these. So thoughtfully curated and thought provoking. This week’s blend was especially potent. Thank you.

    Thanks for the article on female voices and Dr Fiona Hill’s testimony. My consequent reading up on her testimony reignited hope that there still are steely, moral, and intelligent figures working on the behalf of all of us. Have a good weekend!

    Your photos are always so simple and so wonderful — I really enjoy reading this series! What is the little work in progress that is being done? I am so curious about the end result.

      Faye was felting a snowflake that she used to patch a blanket!
