YAWN. We didn’t get in until super late last night from a fabulous wedding (my cousin got married! photos later), had to drive through a raging thunder storm with some scary greenish/bluish glow in the air (looked like hail), an enormous lowering that thankfully did nothing more than sit there and glare at us while I prayed that it would stay in the sky, and a bag full of York Pieces got me through the whole thing.
SPRING IN OKLAHOMA, you are not good for my nerves. I don’t care that I’ve lived here forever. White knuckling a steering wheel in the middle of the night, going 20 miles per hour on the interstate while the car is pounded with heavy rain is NOT my idea of a good time. (Luckily, I did not have to drive.)
Looks like we have another interesting afternoon ahead of us. I was supposed to do a family photo shoot today, but I’m already thinking that will be rescheduled.
- I Believe In Story’s Writing Advice from the Spice Girls
- I’d never heard of the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry until I saw this photo from THIS LAND and now I want to go. Go with me?
- The most incongruous book covers of all time — Everyone has seen that Anne of Green Gables cover (which has since been pulled from Amazon), but my favorite is definitely Wuthering Heights
- “…the impulse to connect the dots and to share what you’ve connected, this urge is what makes you an artist and a writer and the formats are infinite.” — this talk by Amanda Palmer is fabulous
- The Challenge of Friendship (for the Highly Sensitive Person)
- I love stamps and this (not so) little project makes me giddy. It also makes me want to buy chunks of whatever you carve stamps out of and an exacto knife.
