Finished reading: World Travel: An Irreverent Guide by Anthony Bourdain 📚 I read this as a ebook, via my local library, and though it was intriguing and fascinating, I kept thinking that this is a book meant to be read as a hardcover, in your hands, so you can jump around to the different places […]
An absolute standing ovation from me for the movie CODA (2021) It’s proof that you don’t have to recycle stories but, tell the stories of people who aren’t normally featured in stories. Diversity and inclusion in art is absolutely meaningful. 🎥

Finished re-reading: You Are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto by Jaron Lanier 📚 It was a good reminder and helped me rethink and realign some thoughts.
The anxiety brews when my phone battery slides closer and closer to 50% yet, it’s not the same with my car’s fuel tank. I’m good there until the 1/4 mark. Not a huge difference, of course, but a difference. And I’m spending this morning wondering “why?”.
