I like to do this meme from time to time. This is what is happening in my world, right now:
What I Am Listening To: I am listening to Kelly Clarkson’s new album, Meaning of Life. She has a fun vibe and also mixes in powerful ballads. I tend to turn on the radio in the car and love listening to upbeat hip-hop tunes. I am not much of a dancer, but I will certainly jam out in the driver’s seat of my Civic. When I run, I try to catch up on my podcasts – here are a few I am listening to right now – Happier in Hollywood, Tim Ferriss, Creative Nonfiction with Brendan O’Meara.
What I Am Watching: We are watching the Australian Open and the match between Lauren Davis and Simona Halep proved to be the best tennis I’ve witnessed – both women exhibited good sportsmanship, grit and perseverance. I am especially thankful my daughter watched with us. I know I might be late to the party, but I absolutely adore The Crown. I have one episode left in Season 2, but I am saving it when Season 3 is released. How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal are back and of course, Viola Davis is magnificent as usual. Oscar nominations were just released and I hope to catch some of these movies in the next few weeks.
What I Am Reading: I just finished reading, Tell Me More by Kelly Corrigan and Who Will Run the Frog Hospital by Lorrie Moore. Both were excellent and Moore pushes me to become a better writer. Next on tap is Exit West by Mohsin Hamid and Finish by Jon Acuff. For daily reading, I am making a point to read poetry. Right now, I am reading Devotions by Mary Oliver. I am also reading the essays we are debuting on The Sunlight Press.
What I Am Capturing: My freelancing has me writing about food lately, so I’ve captured several fun entrees. Of course that doesn’t mean I am not paying attention to the sky. You will find my nature photography on my Instagram account.
What I Am Loving: Saying No. Family. Tennis tournaments. Bullet journaling. Waking up early. Setting goals. Leaning to move gracefully through rejection.
What’s currently going on in your world?
