Well, it is Saturday evening and I’ve just finished some work. When I work, which is mostly online, I listen to lots of news, interviews, podcasts or watch movies. Tonight, this video was recommended as I watched YouTube. Now I recommend it to you.
If we respect our Creator, we have a responsibility to recognize our intelligence and use it as clearly and coherently as we possibly can. Otherwise, we’re just pretending, we’re just being delusional and rationalizing and justifying and just telling ourselves a big lie…”~John Trudell
Today I will get back to my reading list. My reading apps are a mess (and my home screen is “stressful,” according to Maya), but here’s what I’ve gathered from them anyway—and from my nightstand.
- The Faraway Nearby, Rebecca Solnit
- A Field Guide to Getting Lost, Rebecca Solnit
- Love War Stories, Yvelisse Rodriguez
- Ultralight The Zen Habits Guide to Traveling Light & Living Light, Leo Babauta
- There There, Tommy Orange
- Wanderlust, Rebecca Solnit
- Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, Ross Gay
- Crazy Brave, Joy Harjo (who has just been named our first Native American U.S. Poet Laureate)
- Conversation in the Cathedral, Mario Vargas Llosa
I wanted to read a novel by a Peruvian author and came across this Llosa book, but it is so dense and rambling at 600 pages, I’m not sure I will finish it (I am barely on page 75). Why hasn’t this been made into a movie?
- I also just ordered Tortured Barrio Songs by Reyes Cardenas
