Hello dear friends! A year ago this week I was in the kitchen at the White House, making holiday cookies with Ashley and Molly and oooohhh just the White House Pastry Chef. Exactly 1 trillion things have happened since that time. Just all the stuff that makes us cheer and cry, scream and wonder, and hopefully act more generously with our empathy and genuine curiosity for one another. Hopefully.
I’ve been in San Francisco visiting my maj (a maj is a best friend, a major) this past week. The skies are bright blue, the air feels easy, we’ve gotten to spend some really sweet and important time together, and as a bonus, I’ve made a post 10pm webmd self diagnosis that I really think I’m right about.
Everyday is a winding road. Sheryl Crow had it right all along.
Here’s some words from this week:
• Medium has a series of essays gathered together as Words That Matter. There are all sorts of important writers and thinkers who have offered essays to the group including Margaret Atwood, Roxane Gay, Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
