(This illustration feels about right for this week.)
Reading: The Mothers by Brit Bennett.
Video: tick, tick…Boom! on Netflix. I’m really not a contemporary-Broadway person, but I like Andrew Garfield, so I tuned in.
Audio: The podcast “Once Upon a Time…at Bennington College.”
Art: “DRIFT: Fragile Future” at The Shed.
(Tr)eats: Dried strawberries and mango slices.
Drinks: I mixed myself a nice Negroni at home just a few nights ago.
Beauty Products: Opulent Blends Long-Lasting Hand and Foot Balm (minty!). Anna Sui Lip Treatment Pen (soothing!).
Garb: It’s time to bring out my favorite leopard-spot accessories for their annual winter appearances.
Pleasures: Getting a Covid booster shot and a flu shot. Very #2021.
Plans: Keep exercising my shoulder and arm at home, now that physical therapy is done. Do some Christmas shopping. Give my first in-person talk at the Brooklyn Brainery since 2019!
