this was a good week

This was a good week.  Here's why:

•  My daughter did a research paper on her own accord.  Of course, there was a lot of self-interest involved.

•  Elephants in hand-knit sweaters.  Tell me this doesn't make your day.

•  And speaking of animals, the national zoo #cuteanimaltweetoff made my life.

 I think I found a new blog for art journal inspiration -- here are her best of 2016.  Gorgeous.

•  I'm digging the art journals on this instagram account, too.

•  This clip of a how an Ashtanga yoga practitioner came to her practice is mesmerizing(Related: how does she do that?)

•  Mark Ruffalo on keeping on keeping on.  There's a bit of salty language right at the beginning, but it's a great little pep talk for new activists.  (Plus, Mark Ruffalo, man.  I love him.)

•  And finally, today's soundtrack:  The sound of silence, as performed by Disturbed.  An amazing cover


Have a great weekend, friend.  See you next week.
