Happy Sunday to you, and Easter at that!
How are you? How are your people?
This week I’ve committed to finding lots of different ways to stay steady. I’ve been running by the river. I’ve been laying in the grass in my little backyard. I’ve been over-caffeinating every morning. That last one doesn’t lend to steadiness but it is a reality I’ve committed to.
Far away porch visits are really sweet these days. A few friends and I have mastered the food swap economy so I don’t have to only eat my own food. That’s been a high-five of a surprise.
I hope this finds you as well as can be. The offering this week is delightfully all over the place. Take what you need but make sure you listen to the Bill Wither’s podcast. Mmmkay, here ya go:
• This is difficult and reminds me of how fragile and resilient we are as humans in the world: An Unimaginable Toll. (The Atlantic)

• Please please enjoy this (first) Death Sex and Money Podcast: How to Be a Man With Bill Withers. This voice. This simple wisdom is hard-earned – we just know it. “Ego will make you call fear something different than what it is.” (WNYC)

• Some of my favorite splurge jewelry is on sale until the end of Sunday: Luna Skye SALE. (LunaSkye)
• Can I share with you a few splurgy things that I love these days: I use this clay mask on my face, neck, chest and (believe it or not) the tops of my hands because it’s so affordable and very high functioning. I use this sleep mask a few times a week for moisture and brightening. In lieu of a haircut, this leave-in conditioner werks. (Walmart, Sephora, Ulta)
Be well – my love to you!
