Taking my joy from… 2

I don’t know if this will be a weekly thing or not, but it works well with a practise I try to keep up from mindful meditation. It is never going to be a bad thing to focus on the positive things in daily life.

I’m not going to lie, it’s been a bit of a tricky week with some difficult choices, but that means it’s been even more important to find the good stuff. And go out for pizza and wine tonight.

  • The Printshop!!! If you know what I mean, you know what I mean. If you don’t, you don’t.
  • Podcast I’m deep diving into: The Ongoing History of New Music. I was never very good at listening to radio programs during their scheduled time slots, but always loved when I caught this show accidentally, so subscribing to the podcast makes me feel like I’m righting an ancient wrong.
  • A wander in Oxfam Bookshop – love the randomness of second-hand charity bookshops and surfaced with two major scores: Eating for England: The Delights and Eccentricities of the British at Table and The Lucky Guide to Mastering Any Style. I don’t know how I would get dressed without Kim France telling me what to wear.
  • LION! I heard about this heartwarming, against-all-odds story in the news a few years ago. Back when we were all playing with Google Earth to find out which of our neighbours had swimming pools, Saroo Brierley set out to find his lost birth family with nothing but vague memories of his home, number crunching of data points, and massive leaps forward in satellite imagery and GPS.
