What did you get up to this week?
Since resolving to write this post on a weekly basis (just last week), I have managed to slow time. That wasn’t the goal, but is certainly a welcome side effect. Paying more attention, looking forward to creating this list, and then actually taking the time to write it, is making my brain work more methodically and purposefully in a way that I have been desperately craving.
This is what stopped time for me this week – at least for a little bit .
- The differences between American and British children’s stories – and how much our landscapes play a part.
- Saving the secret groves of prehistoric Wollemi pines from Australia’s wildfires.
- The disconnect of van life.
- Kids and Mocktails.
- My daughter and I loved Cheer.
- I’m super inspired by this woman’s 2019 New Years resolution to talk about climate change.
- The dismantling of our National Park is underway and I am not just sad but angry.
- Wendell Barry challenged my understanding of things in Wild and Domestic.
- This map:
People worry about how much land we’d need to supply the US with clean energy. Well, @elonmusk and I have independently calculated it and we both come up with something roughly comparable to the area we currently use for maple syrup or golf. A square about 100-120 miles per side. https://t.co/AfyATk8LlW
