Things That Are Making Me Happy
Enjoying THERE, THERE by Tommy Orange. It is the story of twelve characters (each gets their own chapter so far) who are coming to a Pow Wow in Oakland, CA. Hard to believe it is a first novel.
Saw FIRST REFORMED again with a friend and liked it just as much as the first time. I can really relate to despair, grief, a sense that all is lost. And also that love or joy can remedy it if only for a moment.
Hugh Grant was downright terrific in A VERY BRITISH SCANDAL on Amazon. He has cast aside the reliance on his looks and tics and become a great character actor.
Thankful for our sprinkler system with the heat this week. As I have taken over many of these chores, I need help where I can get it.
Megan has had herself quite a week with articles about or by her in EW, VANITY FAIR, SEWANEE REVIEW, PUNCH, NEW YORK MAGAZINE and on lots of websites.
Josh and his family are in Montreal and Quebec City. Sadly the heat is there too. Hope there Air BNB has air.
I am so thankful for the friends who have taken my out to lunch, dinner, grocery shopping, etc.
Phil had a clean scan but the chemo drugs made a hole (fistula) between his colon and bladder that requires surgery. He has to wait a month or so for the drugs to be out of his system. In the meantime, he is exhausted and still nauseated.
What about you?
