my week in objects (mostly).

December 16, 2022

    1. a bowl of green shoots.

    2. lights on rainy days.

    3. a friend-found thrifted skirt.

    4. this merry orb and the others.

    5. clippings in empty pots.

    other things:

    a christmas book flood.

    where are they now?

    dish towels have been procured.

    shall be making.

    finding her voices.

    (related! listening and loving.)

    read from the script that says that wonder and magic is worth protecting.

    Thanks for the New Yorker article on audiobook narration. Loved that profile and insights into their artistry and craft. I am mostly reading audiobooks from my library these days and appreciate the performances immensely.

    I love book flood!!! My family adopted the celebration during lockdowns as something to look forward to and it’s since become one of my kids favourite holiday activities. We do it for Solstice and spend the evening all snuggled down reading 🙂

    The Santa article is 10/10 for me. The opening paragraph and the closing line are both pure gold. I love the magic and mystery in all cultures, and don’t want it to see it scrubbed away either 🙂

    Love it Erin. We live in a tiny surf/fishing village in Guatemala some of the time and Santa is not as able to visit us when we are there. I miss the old guy!
