Sunday Morning Coffee

I’ve got to get some quality coffee in this house.

Things I’m Enjoying:

  1. I had read a similar piece about the Making a Murderer bit. In another life I would have probably eaten that show up but as I’ve gotten older I’ve had little tolerance for murders and mysteries like that, especially on tv!

    I really liked your non-fiction piece. 🙂

  2. Elizabeth, I can’t thank you enough for this post. Your non-fiction piece was word art to my image starved soul, and that TED talk by Pico Iyer was exactly what I needed to hear. These days my life has settled into “going nowhere” (which I oft dreamed of reaching before my time was up), yet now that it’s here, I’ve been bemoaning my fate and/or feeling guilty about not doing “more” with my time. (However… my brain is on overdrive!) The stillness you captured in your short, but alive piece inspired me to “write more.” I’ve designated 2016 as the year to DESCRIBE (anything and everything) — so many “thoughts” clamoring for liberation. Again, thanks! xo

    1. Thanks, Kim! Write more! LJ Idol is this competition that pushes me to produce things I wouldn’t otherwise and I’m really grateful for that. I wrote another, much shorter, piece this week inspired by a photo of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward making breakfast in their home. I’m not actively promoting this one on Facebook yet, so here’s the link: http://watching-ships.livejournal.com/477160.html

      I haven’t listened to all the TED talks yet, but I’m planning to 🙂

  3. Thanks for the Brocklehurst post — I had some similar thoughts but she organized hers much better and gave me a good reference work to use in discussing the show and the podcast.

    1. You’re very welcome, Brett. She was able to say so much of what I’d been turning over in my head, but could never quite put into words. It’s a curious case, that’s for sure. I remember watching the original Dateline episode and coming away with some different conclusions.
