  • “I'm not saying I would have ever chosen this option had it been presented to me, but being locked down has given me a greater appreciation for a more habitual, calmer mode of living that I fear will be lost if I return to society. In short, I've turned into one of our cats. I'm sort of kidding, but I'm sort of not kidding.” Matt Gallaway on his blog, with beautiful photos, too.  

  • “Beware of the attachment to quick results. So much of our society is based around fast productivity and the rapid attainment of our desires, [and] this focus on speed can quickly invade our perspective on personal transformation and building inner peace. Quick fixes work on the superficial level; however, if you want to get to the root of your issues, you need to prepare yourself for the long journey.” Yung Pueblo newsletter. I’ve been gravitating to stuff like this lately!

  • “Back then the diet was mostly pinecones and turnips.” I’m late, but this is great: Desus and Mero at the Met

  • A Thousand Years of Vampire.” [Gah, sorry, I had the wrong link at first!] This was cool: “The following is an illustrated account of my play-through of Thousand-Year-Old Vampire.” Totally unrelated, but here’s a link to my comic from last week.

  • I’ve mentioned this before, but I wanted to highlight the always excellent weekly shopping/design newsletter from Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo: A Thing or Two With Claire and Erica. Each installment features 10 things they want to share, from books and beauty products to bird houses and running clothes. They have great taste, which makes it a bittersweet experience, for me. They also have a podcast, and I recently signed up for their Secret Menu newsletter, too. I especially like their warm sense of humor about shopping in general.
