Friday seems to be a nice day to wrap-up a week. I enjoy Tim Ferris’ Five-Bullet Friday and Tsh Oxenreider’s Five Quick Things both of which I receive by email on Fridays. I mentioned before that I also enjoy TGIF from Brene Brown which is a lovely wrap-up combined with gratitude and I like Erin Boyle’s My Week in Objects (because who doesn’t love beautiful objects?).
Favorites this week:
Quote: “It’s not the tragedies that kill us, it’s the messes.” – Dorothy Parker
I love Dorothy Parker’s wit and imagery and this quote fit my post on order perfectly this week.
Podcast: Tim Ferris interviewing Seth Godin.
This is an episode from 2016 that I hadn’t listened to previously and it had so many incredible nuggets of wisdom. As with many of Tim’s interviews, it’s long (about 2 hours) but so good all the way to the end (where Seth includes a list of his favorite audiobooks).
Entertainment: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. “A female sleuth sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 1920s, fighting injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit.” – IMDB
We didn’t watch TV for years while our kids were growing up and still find new-to-us shows regularly that are surprisingly good. This is an Australian-produced series that we’re really enjoying together.
Book: Tightrope by Amanda Quick.
I mostly read non-fiction, so when I read fiction, I like light romance or mystery with witty dialogue. Amanda Quick’s Burning Cove books include both romance and mystery. I was born and raised in California and the big-studio heyday of the 1930’s in California is one of those times I would most like to travel back to (if time travel was a thing).
Music: Sinnerman by Nina Simone.
I love the 1965 live recording of this song and it came up on my playlist yesterday while I was working. I can’t but feel more energized while listening.
