Good Shtuff is a weekly-ish look at what I’m reading and thinking about. This week, it’s all about finding the ease.
Lynda Barry says some beautiful things about doing things by hand in this great interview.
Handwriting, for example, is a very complicated thing. It moves through time with no delete button in the same way we do.
Marissa wrote a beautiful mini-festo about choosing sipping over domination. I am practically allergic to any form of violence, so I very much appreciated this:
I don’t want to feed an ethos of power struggle, scarcity or battling.
Not even metaphorically. Words matter.
It reminded me of a post I wrote a few years ago, when I decided instead of “crush it” I'd make my goal succulence.
Irony: that year I was featured in the NYT best-seller, Crush It. Yes.
Month of Love
I can't believe I'm already at the 4th Annual Month of Love, my yearly attempt to spin yarn inspired by couples. It's my most favorite yarn-y thing I do and the feedback is amazing.
This year it's reminding me to do more of what makes me feel like this. Connected, creative, easy.
